At Hi-Tech, we carefully track each phase of a project. Our streamlined approach allows for us to become the core of the every project, communicate with all parties for proper scheduling and timelines and ensure that each and every project is on time and delivered with the highest quality craftsmanship.
1. INITIAL MEETING
During this phase, Hi-Tech will coordinate an on site meeting with you to review the intended scope of work. We will conduct a field survey of elevator cab or cabs and will discuss which options best suit your needs, budgeting, time frame and design elements that will flow seamlessly within your building. Together, we will create a plan of action that is cost effective and methodical to ensure there is minimal inconvenience to you.
Hi-Tech's team of qualified designers will work your project manager to develop a design that best suits your building and most of all your vision. We will source samples of all materials intended for use, render 3D images of the proposed design for the cab and put together a full presentation board for your review. Our representatives will work around your schedule to present the items to all board members, project committees and/or executives involved in the project.
3. ESTIMATE & AWARD OF CONTRACT
Once the final design is selected, our Estimators will be sure to review the specifications, bid requirements and will put together a clearly written proposal specifying each component of the project. Once approved and the contract is awarded, our production control team will coordinate with you a full project schedule based on your needs, material and fabrication lead time.
Hi-Tech's team of Engineers will review the project scope of work and design and will create precise shop drawings. These drawings will show all different elevation views of the elevator cab, components and assembly as well as a Bill of Materials. Our systems are linked the the machinery in the plant which allow us to properly program the necessary machinery for your project and turn projects around quickly. Once shop drawings are completed, they will be sent to you, the consultant and architect, if any, and your elevator company for review and approval. Once approvals are received, we move forward to the next steps of the project.
5. PRODUCTION AND MANUFACTURING
Hi-Tech's manufacturing department works in conjunction with our engineers and production control department to produce the final product. Our engineers will create "listing sheets" noting how each piece is to be fabricated and what components will be needed. Together, they will work hard to meet the goal of manufacturing a product that surpasses the expectations of our customers. Our production department handles all coordination between all parties involved to ensure that all materials are delivered in a timely fashion. Our fabrication department is conveniently located near our offices to allow for constant communication between project and plant managers.
6. DELIVERY OR INSTALLATION
DELIVERY FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION
If your project called for the construction of a brand new elevator cab, our plant team will stand the entire cab and components up in our facility. At this time customers are invited to our warehouse to view the final product before it is taken down and crated for delivery. Our production department will coordinate delivery of the cab(s) to the building with your elevator company.
If your project is a modernization project, Hi-Tech's production department will coordinate with building management and your elevator company weeks before the initial start date. Once the schedule is confirmed, our field personnel will go to the project site and begin the demolition of the existing cab's interior and installation of the interior. Our Field Foreman will visit the site on a day-to-day basis to ensure quality installation and complete customer satisfaction.
