From Groundbreaking to Ribbon-Cutting
Our commitment to client satisfaction doesn’t end when we hand you the keys to the building. Weitz sees project completion as just the beginning of an ongoing, long-term relationship. We provide our clients with a variety of tools to measure our progress throughout construction, as well as facilitate a smooth transition from project completion to building occupancy. Since more than 75 percent of our business is from repeat or referral clients, our reputation depends on your complete satisfaction.
Easy Access Electronic Files
Instead of thumbing through stacks of plans and cabinets full of files, Weitz provides our team members with searchable electronic storage systems. These efficient, time-saving systems provide all team members simultaneous access to information at any time – plus we save a few trees in the process.
Prolog and JD Edwards
To enhance the efficiency of our project teams, The Weitz Company pioneered the real-time integration of Prolog Manager and JD Edwards to handle the requirements of the total project management. Working together, these two software systems allow us to subcontract work, manage the documents, document the field progress, clarify aspects of the project scope, analyze scope additions and deletions, and accurately forecast our cost throughout the project. This in turn allows us to provide exceptional service and knowledge to our clients.
Weitz provides a leading-edge document management and collaboration system both internally and externally through BOX.com. BOX is an electronic file-sharing system which allows the entire project team access to project information via office or mobile devices.
Electronic Construction Closeout
Used in conjunction with BOX, the ECC feature allows the project team to identify a subset of project folders to be included on an ECC CD/DVD for turnover to the building’s owner or facilities manager. ECC streamlines closeout and gives a better value at a much lower cost by saving the project staff time through reducing or eliminating the need for paper documents and by generating a fully searchable electronic repository.
Testing and Commissioning
The Weitz Team works with our equipment suppliers and the building facilities manager to test all building equipment and systems to ensure they are functioning properly prior to building occupancy.
