PRECONSTRUCTION

Winter Construction provides early and ongoing planning to establish a baseline for all phases of design and construction. Our Preconstruction team, in collaboration with many other Winter staff members across disciplines, ensures that relevant considerations are incorporated and appropriate processes are in place well before construction begins.

MODEL
VISION

We work hand-in-hand with architects and clients to understand the vision, program, end users, space constraints, location conditions, and budget opportunities to build the project before we begin building it.

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

In addition to strong relationships with architects and clients, we are constantly building and developing relationships with Subcontractors and Vendors.

Winter values its subcontractor and vendor relationships. Our efforts to foster these relationships will continue to contribute to our success. To that end, Winter is focused on strategies to improve communication with our trade partners.

  • WINTER IS FOCUSED ON CREATING REAL OPPORTUNITIES: In recent years, many projects have failed to move off the drawing table. Lack of financing, ineffective design, and changes in the market have produced significant challenges for Atlanta’s subcontractor market. To combat this, Winter is applying additional due diligence to ensure every opportunity we pursue has the potential of leading to real work.
  • WINTER IS FOCUSED ON SUPPORTING SUBCONTRACTORS: Winter uses an in-house prequalification and bid solicitation system. This allows us to adapt and be responsive to the needs of our subcontractors. Our goal is to simplify the process and allow us to better match project opportunities to appropriate subcontractors.
  • WINTER IS FOCUSED ON ENSURING PERSONAL CONTACT: Through our involvement with Associated Builders and Contractors of Georgia (ABC), the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), the National Association of Minority Contactors (NAMC), and other industry affiliations, we are committed to continued contact with our subcontractors. In addition, Winter’s annual Open House, monthly subcontractor Round-Tables, and frequent vendor Lunch-and-Learns allow our partners to have a face and a voice within our organization.

Winter encourages ongoing communication with our subcontractors and vendors. We welcome contact with any person on our team. To find out more about working with Winter Construction or visit The Plan Room.
