Nakasato Contracting provides general contracting, design-build, and construction management services crafted to exceed the expectations of our clients. To provide the best quality, value, and overall experience throughout the life of a project, we work in partnership with our clients, design partners, subcontractors, and vendors.
Our clients have come to rely on us as they know they will receive ethical building practices and a collaborative team focused on providing the best cost, schedule, quality and safety from site selection and preconstruction services through project completion. By taking ownership and responsibility in the work we provide and by building strong relationships with the owner, architect and subcontractors, we are able to collaborate through transparent communications ensuring the desired and planned results without any surprises.
As part of our commitment to being the foremost contractor in the United States, we embrace innovative management and construction practices to increase our quality and efficiency. We continually broaden our knowledge, hone our expertise, and improve our processes for the benefit of our clients.
With familiarity and expertise of every aspect in the construction process, Nakasato can orchestrate all the elements that must successfully converse at the inception of a project. We can aid the owner in the selection of a site (if necessary); the selection of an A/E firm; finalizing the program; assembling the parameters for each processional discipline; identifying bid packages and construction phasing; and saving money for the owner by establishing, from the outset, a realistic total capital expenditures budget. Our construction management expertise services as Construction Manager-Contractor At-Risk and CMa where Nakasato serves as Construction Manager-Advisor.
At Nakasato we understand that time is money. That is why we employ highly skilled preconstruction team members and the most innovative technology. The combination of these two factors improves the speed, efficiency and accuracy of our preconstruction services offering you the “best value”.
Nakasato Contracting offers Design-Build Delivery in cases where the client seeks to contract with a single entity to minimize project risk and reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. This method allows our clients a single point of contact for all facets of design and construction. Nakasato assumes the responsibility of engaging and contracting with the design professionals thereby assuming complete responsibility for the design and construction disciplines.
In actuality, there are only minor differences between Design/Build and Design-Assist (negotiated construction with preconstruction services). In both cases, the contractor is engaged early in the design phase of the project in order to allow for cost control and owner consultation through the design phase. The distinct difference between the two involves the contractual association among the owner, contractor and architect.
The protection of people, property and the environment is a core value of our business philosophy. Accountability is an important element in the safety and health management system of Nakasato Contracting. Our Management Team understands that Safety is not just “good business,” it’s the right thing to do.
Through a Safety and Health Management System that includes a “Plan, Do, Check, Act” methodology, and a belief in Continuous Improvement, we believe all incidents and injuries are preventable, and Hazard Recognition and Elimination begins in the planning stage. Safety is not just “First”, it is “Always” – at work, on the roadways and at home.
We are builders. One thing we have learned over the past few decades is that planning is paramount to the success of any project. Before we start, we review every aspect of what we are going to do, and exactly how we are going to do it.
Through early collaboration with owners, designers, and engineers, we can create the most streamlined schedule possible. Nakasato has some of the most capable and respected veteran builders in the construction industry who understand the intricacies of developing a complex, multi-phased project schedule, utilizing state-of-the-art schedule software.
We meet with the entire project team, owners and designer, every week to review milestones, metrics relative to construction performance, and budget reviews. We believe in superior communication at all levels – this is the key to a successful project. When all parties are exchanging information and ideas in an efficient and effective manner, we can accomplish anything.
Budget management at the field level is a continuous loop process where we are constantly tracking cost vs. budget. Using multiple internal tracking systems to ensure accuracy, we minimize and eliminate budget increases or generally referred to as “scope creep”.
Being the builders that we are, we believe it’s important to self-perform traditional general contractor work such as soft demolition, structural excavation, concrete formwork, placing and finishing of concrete, rough carpentry work and door/frame/hardware installations. Performing this work with our own full-time employees guarantees higher quality, greater schedule control, and cost savings to the client.
Let our experience be your experience. Through our lessons learned program, experience from one job moves to the next. Our employees learn from one another through real world examples. This constantly growing base of knowledge added to our years of experience provides our clients with an all-encompassing know-how.
