Effective preconstruction services can determine the ultimate success of a project. At LEFKO, we aim to understand our clients’ needs, the project challenges and the importance of coordination and decision-making from the very beginning of a project. As part of our comprehensive preconstruction services, LEFKO provides:
We tailor each of these services for the project owner, so you can rest assured your projects are efficiently and effectively controlled before construction begins.
Our general contracting services are always performed by our team of project managers, who have the experience, knowhow, and commitment to get the job done right, on-time and within budget. As part of our comprehensive and efficient general contracting services, we handle all your construction needs.
At LEFKO, we are proud to have long-standing relationships with our sub-contractors, built over many years of working together. This allows us to make the construction process easy for our clients, architects, project engineers and other stakeholders.
By combining a knowledge of project management information systems (PMISs), knowledge of construction methods, and complex planning techniques, like critical path method and value engineering, we customize our construction plan to have the least possible impact on your daily operations. Moreover, by applying this rigorous process, we can minimize risks – including safety, security and material risk,- and ensure on-time, quality delivery of the project.
LEFKO Construction can manage all phases of the construction process, from small to large projects. The construction management process enables us to add value for the project owner, from design and initial planning to the finished delivered project, and every aspect in-between.
Every client is unique, and so are the services their projects require. Understanding their individual needs is a fundamental aspect of how we oversee construction management services. As Construction Managers, we directly represent the interests of our clients, and work with all parties to deliver the project on time, at or under budget, and to the specified standard of quality and function.
LEFKO offers design-build services to those clients who would like a single source to design and construct their project. This approach is ideal for clients who like certainty and speed of delivery. Design-Build offers a collaborative and efficient method of completing a construction project that leverages the strengths of single-source planning, design, and construction expertise to realize the owners’ vision.
The foundation of all our design-build projects begins with a great team. We bring together architects, engineers, and other stakeholders in a structured process to ensure we deliver a high-quality product. Further, we commit to providing accurate estimates, resolving unforeseen issues, minimizing change orders, and reducing the overall costs by using innovative construction practices and technology.
In summary, the Design-Build option brings greater levels of accountability, value, and control to your project.
At LEFKO, we take great pride in being experts at ADA projects. Many of our past renovations have included ADA components, including improving building/floor access, restrooms updates, break room improvements, or new ramps and wheelchair lifts. Over the years, we have successfully completed ADA projects for public and private sector entities, including the Georgia State University, Georgia Department of Labor, Gwinnett County and the City of Brookhaven, in addition to private clients such as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices offices and Urbana Wellness Spa.
Projects in occupied spaces require a strict adherence to proven best practices, procedures and processes to lessen the impact on those currently ‘occupying’ the space. Over the years, we’ve completed many such projects, and this experience allows us to develop site specific methodologies. Prime among these is our process to understand your needs and implement regular communication protocols to eliminate delays and resolve unforeseen issues. For example, we always analyze which of the tasks most impact your operations, and plan to mitigate this impact. This means we have established planning and notification routines when our work generates loud noise, interrupts elevator service, causes electrical and water outages, or causes other disturbances.
LEFKO also has extensive experience renovating and repurposing historical old buildings, as well as new construction that integrates into historical properties. These jobs require extra attention to detail and utmost sensitivity to maintaining the integrity of the historical structures and spaces. Recent completions include work on the historic grist mill museum and grounds at Freeman’s Mill Park, the Clay Building in Conyers, renovating a building on Edgewood Ave. in Atlanta, and the rejuvenation of several floors of the historic Grant Building in downtown Atlanta.
