Construction Services

At Haren Companies, we have the experience and capabilities to manage a range of projects. Our management style comes down to collaborating in an effective way with the right people. Toward that end, we take a client-centered collaborative approach for each and every project we manage. Team collaboration helps a project go as smoothly as possible by providing the following benefits to our clients:

  • Creates a centralized message throughout a project
  • Guides decision-making
  • Makes the development of goals and objectives a team process
  • Helps clearly define responsibilities
  • Sets clear expectations
  • Solves problems
  • Guides a project to reach a successful outcome with no unforeseen detours

In the early stages of each project, we establish communication protocols and use sub-contractor, architect and owner feedback to develop our approach to the project. Detailed schedules, budgets and safety plans are developed with input from all project stakeholders

Safety Is the Top Priority

Safety is the guiding principle of our business. Your Haren team makes a commitment to the safety of each person involved in every project. Our long-standing safety procedures includes daily site safety inspections, continuous training ranging from first aid, to confined spaces, to fall protection. {insert Training image}

Subcontractor Selection

Our selection process begins with an open request for subcontractors that would like to bid the project. When then develop a “short list” of qualified contractors from each trade. This list consists of interested subcontractors, owner and architect recommendations, and recommended trade providers. Bids received from these trades are reviewed for accuracy, completeness, qualifications, and competitiveness. Final bids may be subject to owner review, so the most competitive and qualified subcontractors will be awarded the contract.

Haren has a deep reach into the subcontractor community. As part of our continual efforts to maintain and develop additional relationships within the subcontractor community, we discuss various aspects of their business related to labor availability, cost and inflation trends, and material lead times. Our internal subcontractor qualification forms allow us to discern a lot of this valuable information and utilize it in a way to project future cost impacts.

Every project has a deadline, and finishing your project on time is in everyone’s best interest. Your Haren team employs a variety of time tested scheduling tecniques to ensure that the unique needs, and critical timelines of the schedule are met.
