Our Services

Pre-Construction Services

Failure to plan is planning to fail.   At HarenLaughlin, our pre-construction planning is an extensive process, including a thorough review of design documents. We routinely streamline schedules and procedures to ensure you receive the finest quality at the most competitive price.  The earlier we are involved in your project, the more we are able to control budgets and manage your resources wisely and efficiently.  We work with the team from the inception of your project to ensure the most value for your dollar.

    Construction Services

    We want the building experience to be exceptional for our clients. With this goal in mind, there are five key elements to every build: Safety, Quality, Cost Control, Time, and Owner Satisfaction. With these elements in mind, three key principles are inherent to the success of our projects.

    Safety Is the Top Priority
    At HarenLaughlin, our highest priority is to conduct a safe project, for our clients, their clients, and the HarenLaughlin team.  Our safety heritage is just that – a long-standing commitment to the safety of everyone involved in our projects.  From OSHA training to monthly meetings, weekly on-site training and daily site safety inspections, safety is the guiding principle in how we manage every project.  This commitment results in each of our employees returning home safe at the end of the day and a stellar company safety record with more than five years since our last lost time accident.

    Communication Is Key
    At the inception of a project we work with the owners to establish communication roles and expectations for all parties from the owner through subcontractors and suppliers.  With our communication process, there are no surprises:

    • Progress Reports are provided at regularly scheduled meetings and daily as needed via email and conference calls.
    • Project Schedules are updated weekly in conjunction with three-week project ‘look-ahead’ schedules to allow for project and material planning.
    • Costs are monitored and reported weekly with monthly in-depth reviews to ensure budget adherence.
    • Feedback opportunities are presented throughout the building process, with surveys provided to our clients to ensure we are meeting your needs and allowing our team to make modifications as necessary.

    Oversight For Excellence
    For the duration of the construction process, your project is monitored daily by a full-time, on-site superintendent. Our project managers are Construction Science degreed professionals, who are accessible to owners, highly skilled and educated, and selected for projects based on their skill set and experience.  Each job site superintendent is exclusive to his project to provide full time over site.

    The project manager and superintendent are in continuous communication to ensure oversight and pro-active management of your asset. This oversight begins with site development and continues through final landscaping.  This hands-on supervision process ensures job site safety, superior quality, cost management and an on-time project delivery.

    Post-Construction Services

    We guarantee our work and provide you the confidence of owning/operating a sustainable facility.

    To ensure your satisfaction, we administer a one-year warranty on your project.  At any point during the warranty period, simply contact us with any concern you may have with your facility.

    Our post-construction services are designed to ensure not only the quality of your experience, but also the functionality of your facility when construction is complete.

    Subcontractor Selection
    When we subcontract services, we hand select the subcontractor to provide the caliber of craftsmanship we are proud to deliver under the HarenLaughlin name. Our selection process begins with a pre-qualified list of skilled contractors from each trade.  This pre-qualified list consists of proven subcontractors, owner and architect recommendations, and recommended trade providers.  Bids received from these pre-qualified crafts 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.
