Operate Your Business While We Work
You can’t afford to slow down to accommodate new construction, which is why we do our best work when the world around us is still moving at the speed of your daily operations. We understand the need to maintain a clean, quiet, and safe working environment, especially when highly sensitive activities are underway in the next room. At Bigelow Fleming, we work around you—not you around us.
When working in occupied space, it is crucial to maintain a safe and clean work site. There may be office workers, researchers, students, or patients in the area who are sensitive to noise, dust, and dirt. The vast majority of our work is done in occupied space, so we pride ourselves on our dedication to keeping the construction zone clean, quiet, and safe for those around it. Additionally, keeping a neat space helps us keep our own employees healthier, happier, and safer.
We Control The Variables, So You Don't Have To
Completing a project on schedule and on budget is as important to us as it is to you. We align our mindset with your overarching goals, and integrate seamlessly with your existing environment to ensure that communication is consistent and potential issues are anticipated. We guide our clients through each step in the process of building the best facilities to fit their vision, and to accelerate their development.
We know that while we are building your new facility, you are busy planning and strategizing for your next big move. It is not a time to be held back by delays and surprise developments, or to be left in the dark about the status of your project. At Bigelow Fleming, you can rest assured knowing that Tom and Kevin are personally overseeing your project, ensuring that our standards of excellence are maintained, and that it is well-attended every step of the way. There are no secrets, gimmicks, or empty promises: since we are personally invested in helping your organization grow, we do everything in our power to get the job done in the most efficient and polished manner possible.
Smart Design Informed by Experience
At Bigelow Fleming, we make your life easier by providing a fully integrated team from design through execution. We hand select every team member based on the type of project, their background, and their ability to meet our rigorous standards. From the architect to the engineer, we tailor our team to your specific needs under a single point of contact, to provide you the best results with the least hassle.
We are always happy to alter and adjust plans to better suit our clients’ needs, but why not get it done right from the start? Our expertise in diligent planning and allocation of resources allows us to create optimized plans from the very beginning that make the best use of space and properly accommodate the project specifications. We believe in precision, and always think about what is best in the long-term when it comes to design-build, so you are positioned in the best way possible for all future decisions. By being accurate, thorough, and conservative, we can minimize your stress, mitigate risks, and maximize value.
Programming & Pre-Construction
The pre-construction phase of a project is one of the most crucial steps. It is vital to have an experienced contractor who is trustworthy, understands the vision and concept, and keeps your best interests in mind before letting a project go to bid. This is where expectations are set, budgets are estimated, timelines are scheduled, and the scope is planned. Getting this done right from the very beginning is the key to avoiding unforeseen costs and setbacks.
Bigelow Fleming’s adaptability and vast industry experience saves our clients time and money in the pre-construction phase. From the outset of every project, we customize our approach by working directly with the end users. We coordinate meetings with them, incorporate their feedback, and keep them involved in the process. When our clients take advantage of our industry experience and expertise, they can rest assured knowing that their project is in expert hands from start to finish, leaving them with the freedom to focus on the big picture and other important decisions.
FF&E and Move Management
Coordinating for Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E) is one of the final, but equally important stages in our process. Rather than leaving the facilities managers to plan these fundamental details once the construction is complete, Bigelow Fleming goes the extra mile to ensure that the space not only meets the design requirements, but also that it meets the performance needs of the end user. We want to make the entire process easier for our clients by providing the right connections, applied knowledge, and a sense of how the end user will interact with the space.
At Bigelow Fleming, we have been coordinating FF&E for over 25 years. To us, it is not an extra service; it is an integral component that we prioritize just as highly as any other part of our process. We meticulously plan the finishing touches that will bring the space to life. Moving and planning is more than a value-add, it’s part of what we do as trusted advisors to our clients.
