AMS is committed to providing exemplary service to the schools, districts and architects who partner with us, as well as the students and teachers who spend their days in our buildings. We’re there from preconstruction planning to postconstruction follow-up—a full-service approach that offers multidisciplinary expertise across the entire construction spectrum. We streamline logistics with a central point of contact to shorten schedules and limit dependencies. We think creatively, finding inventive solutions that add value and save money. And we execute proactively, identifying and eliminating potential roadblocks to ensure on-time, on-budget delivery of a superior quality building.
Upfront planning lays the groundwork for a successful project.Whether you’re looking to expand facilities or start ground-up with new construction, the goal of preconstruction is to make sure the project goes well, end-to-end. We assemble an experienced hands-on team to manage your project, assigning responsibilities and setting budgets and schedules to achieve key objectives. We work with architects and stakeholders to assess needs and formulate initial concepts, guiding you toward smart design choices that reflect your vision. After value-engineering your design to maximize every dollar, we’ll handle permitting, expediting the approval to build.
Our strong project controls keep your project on track. Our build process is carefully orchestrated to control variables and eliminate inefficiencies at every step. We use digital controls to monitor schedules and budgets, managing change with speed and flexibility to ensure all functions proceed to plan. We coordinate every detail, scheduling progress meetings and using technology to maintain open communication between team members. We benchmark to quality and safety standards, ensuring code-compliance with third-party inspections. Top-down, our expertise and diligence keep your project on-schedule, on-budget and tracking toward a timely completion.
We deliver a positive experience throughout the building lifecycle. Once the building is installed, our AMS team prepares for closeout, executing a punch list to ensure the building conforms to specs and following up to ensure the project has been completed to the client’s satisfaction. To make certain the building is safe, comfortable and functional over its full lifecycle, we train school staff on the operation and monitoring of our building systems and offer a comprehensive warranty to cover future issues.
We match your building to your sustainability goals. AMS is a LEED and CHPS specialist, with a team of experienced professionals to tailor a sustainable solution to your project needs and building site. All AMS buildings are built responsibly, with high recycled content and an energy-efficient design, but our sustainability consultants can assess your long-term goals and upgrade any building with renewable energy technologies, high-efficiency systems and environmentally preferred materials to achieve specific energy and lifecycle targets.
