The ideal site for any client is a flat property, to avoid costly excavation, with additional space for possible future expansion. These are key things that Cardinal looks for when selecting a site, along with due diligence such as zoning for a particular use.
Create a start to finish timeline for clients that meets their needs and expectations, hold project meetings every other week with client and subcontractors, send out meeting minutes to all applicable parties, make schedule adjustments when necessary and approved by client. Project scheduling at Cardinal is handled with accuracy and efficiency.
Rough carpentry, framing, finish carpentry. We appreciate tight joints as much as the future owner, and ensure lines are level, straight and plumb. Lumber is pre-inspected and bad stock is returned to supplier for credit or replacement.
Laser screeding, foundations, floors, walls, walkways, etc. A good contractor knows the right mix to use based on environmental factors like temperature extremes, salting, etc. It's important to foster a team effort with the concrete supplier.
We listen to the client and gain an understanding of needs both for that moment and years from then. Is there a possibility or probability for expansion? We also research the type of business our clients are in to identify common struggles relating to this business.
Analyzing options to stay on budget or reduce costs while retaining the original look and function of the facility. For instance, perhaps the plumbing or lighting fixtures are overly extravagant. Possibly, the outside trim is a source of the problem.
Cardinal Construction performs as the project manager for proposed projects and awarded projects. We obtain a complete bid package for the client, communicate between client and subcontractors via purchase orders, contracts, RFIs, submittals, and change orders, and follow through with punchlist items and O&M documents at the end of each project.
Sometimes, a client comes in with a rough sketch or a photo of something they really like. That is a great way to start the conversation. Other times, we begin with even less than that, and we develop schematics to identify workflow and facility layout. We have discussions with the client to discover needs and determine a budget. We search for the source of their "pain" – previous limitations or inefficiencies, etc. Upon approval of the blueprint, we build.

Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings
Steel structures have come a long way in providing design/build flexibility. Benefits include immense clearspans without the need for interior columns, higher ceiling clearances, higher R-values and lower insurance rates due to the noncombustible construction. Where intricate design is part of the plan, buildings can feature a combination of metal and wood.
