We are a traditional General Contractor, not a “broker” that subcontracts all work. This gives us advantages in controlling schedule, quality and budget.
The work we typically self-perform includes: selective demolition, structural steel, miscellaneous metal, rough carpentry, finish carpentry, and the installation of specialty items.
Gast Construction is uniquely qualified as a Construction Manager due to our collaborative approach to project delivery. We are geared to handle complex, detailed and time sensitive commercial construction projects. Additionally, due to our longevity in the business we have immediate access to the most qualified and skilled subcontractors and have unique internal resources that many firms do not.
We work closely with the owner and architect team to identify the unique and specific needs, and deliver insightful value engineering, accurate budgets and final estimates, appropriate construction packages with owner and architect input for bid, and provide and manage a construction schedule that meets the owner’s needs.
Design / Build Services
This simple, straight-forward delivery method allows the owner to contract with a single-source of responsibility for the project and assures a true team effort by the owner, designer and builder throughout the project from schematic design to final completion. The presence of the builder on the team provides continuous costing to assure meeting budget goals as well as thorough constructability reviews. This system is used to minimize the project risk for an owner and to reduce the schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.
Green Building / LEED
Gast Construction is a “green building” contractor and has completed several LEED certified projects. We recycle a large quantity of our demolition and waste material, and try to use environmentally friendly products when possible.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is the internationally accepted third-party verification providing owners and operators a framework for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
