Our comprehensive construction program encompasses everything from cost and schedule, to procurement, quality, safety, and building performance. Danis is a builder as well as a construction manager: we employ over 200 craftsmen specializing in everything from concrete to finish carpentry work. This first-hand experience with building allows us to provide an exceptional level of accuracy and expertise in our schedules, estimates and quality control procedures. Our planning and processes ensure that our clients have the right information to make informed decisions and stay on budget and schedule while exceeding the industry standards of excellence.
Danis employs Building Information Modeling (BIM) to advance traditional two-dimensional design into a collaborative, comprehensive model providing team members with layers of information to aid in the design and construction process. BIM aids collaboration with our clients, architectural partners and major subcontractors by providing enhanced visualization and a greater understanding of building flow and operations. As a result, BIM enhances our ability to contain costs, accelerate schedule, and ensure quality throughout the design and construction process.
Danis is on the forefront of the construction industry with the establishment of our Building Envelope Commissioning Process. While commissioning is typically used in analyzing and monitoring the mechanical and electrical system, Danis recognizes the advantage of utilizing this in-depth process to ensure quality and functionality in the building envelope system as well.
The Design Assist approach produces a “best value designed” building with lower life-cycle costs and a sensible payback period. Collaboration with all team members begins during the conceptual phase and continues throughout design, construction and commissioning.
With equipment often coming from numerous vendors on varying timelines, and commonly converging at the end of the project, the planning, coordination and management of equipment is often a full time job on large projects. Our 6-Step Equipment Management Program covers every step of the equipment coordination process, from procurement to delivery management. An emphasis is placed on seamless integration of the equipment logistics with the construction schedule to save money and minimize inefficiencies.
On a number of our larger projects, we utilize Vela Systems, a field management software, to increase efficiency, quality and coordination between all major parties involved. What has been previously done essentially twice, once on paper onsite and again logged into software in the trailer, is done one time onsite and is immediately updated in real time for all relevant parties.
Danis places the highest priority on safety, and our Fire & Smoke Wall Quality Control Program is no exception. We utilize accreditation requirements, state building codes, and any other state and local requirements as a roadmap by which the Danis workforce makes sure construction is compliant with the appropriate agencies and codes and ensures the safety of all personnel and visitors. Danis also appoints one person whose sole responsibility on the project is to ensure compliance with all standards, rated wall specifications and fire stop inspections.
Lean techniques streamline the construction process to eliminate waste and deliver efficiency. Often, the schedule can be accelerated through minimizing inefficient breaks and downtime, and costs can be lowered by minimizing subcontractors’ time onsite and maximizing their productivity.
Danis can assist you in producing an environmentally responsible building with optimal energy efficiency and lower life cycle costs. By establishing high-performance and environmental goals, as well as baseline measurements, and identifying applicable practices and strategies, we can document progress levels and, if LEED Certification is desired, determine the required documentation to achieve your project goals.
Properly planned MEP commissioning begins during the preconstruction phase of a project. It is vital to define the extent and scope of commissioning so that a commissioning team can be assembled and the plan can be scheduled and executed.
We focus on developing a comprehensive and achievable schedule which can be used as an accurate planning tool for the life of your project. Our onsite project team goes to great lengths to ensure schedules are met and coordinated with your business operations.
The award-winning Danis Safety Policies and Procedures Program has been developed by the Danis Safety Staff and Senior Management, continually improved by the workforce, and time tested through our partnership with OSHA VPP underscoring the purpose of our overall safety process. Through heightened awareness, OSEP (Operation Safety Education Program) and Best Practices Sharing, we put “Safety First.”
