Professional Services, Professional Clients
The NYC SCA, NYCHA, NYC DCAS, NYC DDC, NYC HHC, PANY&NJ, NYS OGS, DASNY, and US GSA. What do these abbreviations* all have in common? They’re all large agencies with multiple facilities, millions of square feet, and billions of dollars of value under their watch. And they’ve all entrusted SUPERSTRUCTURES for professional architecture and engineering services to restore and renew these assets—not just for a single project but again and again in ongoing relationships. In posts to follow, we’ll profile our work for these agencies, hospital systems, and higher education clients.
All of these organizations have facilities in New York City and comply with the City’s Facade Inspection Safety Program (FISP, or Local Law 11). To assure public safety and to preserve asset value, their facades and roofs must be maintained safe and water tight. They retain us to investigate problems, develop solutions, prepare construction documents, and administer construction.
Whereas construction contracts are generally awarded to the lowest bidder, assignments of professional services are based on qualifications, not cost. The value SUPERSTRUCTURES offers is a well-executed project that’s completed on time, on budget, and for a fair price. Agency clients also value our well-crafted construction drawings and specifications because they help avoid costly change orders and delays.
Ultimately, all of these agencies are professional clients with architects, engineers, and construction professionals on their selection committees. Whether you’re looking for a professional opportunity yourself or professional services on behalf of your organization, shouldn’t you follow their lead and get to know us?
