Our commitment to serving our clients “after the dust has settled” is as important to us as the effort and commitment we make in building the project.

General Information

Seabold Construction Co., Inc. brings years of successful construction experience to any project we are a part of. We specialize in bringing together specific experienced management teams for each project we undertake. Providing team’s that are capable of delivering a quality project on time and on budget, and that have the ability to work with multiple funding sources is a trademark of Seabold Construction.

We have successfully completed over 4,000 new multifamily, senior, and farm worker housing units and have a broad range of construction experience including new and renovated multifamily residential, senior living, healthcare, commercial, industrial, retail, and tenant improvement projects. Many of our projects have consisted of one to four stories of residential over commercial/retail space with underground parking, with a majority of the construction projects we build being negotiated with repeat customers.

PRE CONSTRUCTION

The preconstruction period is critical to the overall success of any project, as it provides the opportunity for all team members to focus their individual and collective efforts toward a final, successful result. Solid planning and groundwork during the preconstruction period will go a long way to help ensure construction of the project is a smooth and efficient process.

The following general activities are undertaken during the preconstruction period:

  • Initial team meeting; The team generally consists of the estimator, project manager, and in some cases superintendent, who will review progress sets of drawings and specifications so that early challenges or opportunities can be identified and that the intent of project can be addressed.
  • Review of constructability; Reviewing the impact of overall construction design and how it relates to the cost and scheduling of the project (i.e. existing site conditions, project layout, site constraints, phasing of the work, and design conflicts.)
  • Budgeting; Develop the preliminary construction budget using data and expertise from current and past projects.
  • Value engineering; Develop a list for review with the project team, and provide options for review that may present long and short term cost savings.
  • Identify potential subcontractors and vendors; We accomplish this by utilizing our current extended list of subcontractors and vendors as well as seeking out new bidders with a focus on experience and capability and also to seek out local minority subcontractors to accommodate project scope.
  • Attend neighborhood meetings; Meet with the public, owners, city officials, and project team to provide construction related input as may be required to progress the project forward.

POST CONSTRUCTION

Our commitment to serving our clients after completion is as important to us as the effort and commitment we make in building the project. The following activities will be undertaken during the post construction period:

  • Maintain contact; Be immediately available to owner to ensure the smooth transition and startup of the facility, and provide service throughout the warranty period, and beyond.
  • Train owner personnel; Guide owners employees and maintenance professionals in all building system operations.
  • Meet with owner and architect to do “one-year” warranty review and punch list.
  • Service and assist owners’ needs after one-year warranty period.

QUALITY CONTROL

As the General Contractor for your project, Seabold’s primary goal is to exceed your expectations by providing a quality, long lasting product. Our Quality Control, Safety, and Warranty teams will work with the construction team to identify and address quality assurance.

An independent inspector traveling to each project unannounced also helps to ensure subcontractors are constructing and installing doors, windows, roofing material, etc. according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Quality Control reports are prepared and reviewed before, during, and after each construction phase to ensure subcontractors’ work is in compliance with established quality standards.

SAFETY

Seabold Construction Co., Inc. has a primary concern for the safety and well-being of all of our employees*; we recognize construction work involves many types of physical hazards, and we are confident accidents and risks can be greatly reduced if every employee knows and follows safety practices, understands and complies with the company’s drug and alcohol policy, and maintains quality control policies and programs.

The effectiveness of any safety program depends directly upon the participation and cooperation of management supervision. Their coordinated effort is essential for producing satisfactory results. Management must demonstrate total support for the program and our management team is completely supportive of the program currently in place.

Training is given during pre-construction meetings, new hire orientations, and/or on-site safety meetings, to ensure all employees are up to date on our policies and programs.

We have been proactive in providing carefully trained, well-equipped crews to all of our projects and facilities with our objectives as follows:

  • Provide a Safety Program ensuring compliance with all applicable Owner, Local, State, and Federal, requirements
  • Eliminate personal injury to all employees
  • Eliminate property damage
  • In 2004-2005, Seabold Construction received the Associated General Contractor’s Certificate of Commendation for a loss ratio of 10% or less for that policy period.

Diversity

A large part of our success is dependent on partnerships with minority subcontractors and vendors. We are committed to providing equal employment opportunities and also if needed; mentoring and bidding assistance to any minority that desires to work with Seabold. We are committed to being a non-discriminatory business with that promotes diversity. We accomplish this by continually engaging M/W/ESB/DBE firms from all disciplines to bid our projects.

In an effort to be as proactive as possible concerning our minority subcontractor base we work closely with various minority organizations, community development corporations, and minority subcontractor support programs. Seabold will also conduct pre-bid work-shops that provide minority firms the opportunity to view a project far in advance of the actual call for bids.

Drawing from our own list and those of the State of Oregon, Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs (OAME), and other community-based organizations, we are normally able to achieve anywhere from 20% to 50% minority involvement.

As a General Contractor a large part of our success is dependent on partnerships with minority subcontractors and vendors.

Seabold Construction Co., Inc. brings years of successful construction experi-ence for clients who want a team partner capable of delivering a quality project on time and within a pre-described budget; with the ability to work with multiple public funding sources each with unique underwriting criteria.

Develop the preliminary construction budget and schedule development; drawing on expertise from current and past projects.

Analyze potential value engineering opportunities and develop a list for review with project team. Value engineering means more than just cost savings, it’s an opportunity to provide options for review that may present as a higher cost in the beginning, but can show long-run savings.

Assess the marketplace and identify potential subcontractors and vendors with experience and capacity to accommodate project scope. We accomplish this by utilizing our current extended list of subcontractors and vendors as well as opening up options for new bidders with a focus on M/W/ESB candidates.

Attend neighborhood meetings with project team and provide construction related input as may be required to meet the individual project’s needs and specifications.

Formally bid project once contract documents are complete. Review sub-bids with team and prepare contract amount. Prepare and execute AIA Construction Contract
