How We Work

Our Processes

Serco’s approaches each project with a sequenced time-logic schedule clearly demonstrating our plan to finish prior to the specified duration. Our process includes early interfacing with contractor/owner and design team, preconstruction planning and scheduling, a laser-focus on safety, contract administration, cost management and quality control.

Contractor/Owner & Design Team

We work along side the contractor/owner and design team, offering value-engineered alternatives to produce cost savings while maintaining the structural and architectural integrity required. Serco uses state-of-the-art technology Take-Off and Bid2Win professional estimating and budgeting of the project.

Pre-construction Planning

Time is money and design modifications are a critical part of most projects. Thus, Serco ensures thorough input, team buy-in and optimized scheduling in order to exceed client schedule expectations. Our planning and scheduling expertise clearly demonstrate our ability to manage and meet needed requirements.

Laser-focused Safety Commitment

Serco values safety and we will not sacrifice the safety of our team for production. All employees (subcontractors, suppliers, third parties and our own team) while on company-run projects and in the performance of their work are required to comply with all safety and health regulations established by OSHA and Serco. This includes specifically written work practices related to potential hazards per project. (Serco's commitment to safety has led to an exceptional safety rating, created lower insurance costs, established higher employee satisfaction, and built higher client confidence.)

Quality Control

As part of each project process, Serco develops a unique quality control plan defining details and quality responsibilities. High quality standards are a high priority.

Contract Administration

All contract administration is performed at the partnership level. Because of our relationship and experience in working with our bonding and insurance companies, we can quickly execute contract documents and keep the project on schedule.

Cost Control

Our cost control measures include the following elements:

  • Secure relationships with vendors and subcontractors ensure appropriate costs are included as defined in the project scope.
  • Payment terms are negotiated equal to those provided by Client, preventing unnecessary expectations and complaints by the subcontractors. (Serco has a history of paying all subcontractors and vendors in a fair and timely manner.)
  • Serco tracks all field costs internally and manages resources effectively.
  • By adhering to the scheduling, Serco saves unnecessary overhead and additional costs.
