Our comprehensive T.E.A.R. Review protects client interests by addressing
project-specific issues. Findings incorporated into final construction
documents and subcontractor pricing maximize efficiencies toward
successful, cost-effective project completion within designated parameters.
Each illustration provides an example of studies performed by R+R team members and reflects the highly detailed focus on many vital elements of both Pre-Construction and Construction phases.

T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Outline areas of concern w/Constructability and Means & Methods to propose to design team for integration into design.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
Any conflicts were identified and all additional information was integrated into design documents.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Review proposed location of interior hoist that was impacting the delay of finishes.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
It was determined to place the hoist on the exterior (not interior as proposed) with a cantilevered scaffold. This would bring
manpower & materials into core of the building thus minimizing impact on interior fit-out and related schedule.

T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Study Alternate Means & Methods to achieve a more cost effective approach to construct a custom trough.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
Multiple conflicts and questions were identified in this “RFI” in order to get feedback which could allow for alternate methods
to be proposed.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Present an Alternate Shoring System to hold up an existing façade. As designed it would conflict with pile installation.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
A system was designed and proposed that would keep the shoring in a remote location that would not
interfere with the proposed work.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Study for alternate method of jacking structure for removal of columns.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
Alternate method achieved utilizing alternate shoring approach which resulted in considerable savings.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Develop a sequence of stabilization, demolition, and steel erection to allow for building to be renovated while maintaining
structural integrity.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
This was achieved by performing multiple studies outlining the step-by-step approach while taking into account many factors
that direcly impacted the erection process

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
To be explicit in a competitive bid process about issues and concerns with Details, Constructability, and Cost Savings ideas.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
A full analysis was prepared which would allow items to be addressed prior to award, thus minimizing potential change orders
and/or delays.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Required to find over 10% savings from a $30MM budget without sacrificing Design.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
This was just one element of the Value Engineering exercise that helped achieve the overall savings.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Client desired to utilize a product manufactured overseas.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
We came up with a plan to make it modular and have it shipped across the ocean.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Present shoring design impedes progress of erection of structure.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
Alternate shoring system which frees up erection area and allows for a more expedited process.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Examine phasing and logistics for a major replacement of structural steel in an existing building which had to be performed in
multiple stages due to structural stability.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
A sequence was established that minimized additional shoring while maintaining an efficient Logistical Approach.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Cost studies based on Architect’s request to meet “Shape & Form” leaving freedom for Means & Methods & Materials.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
Multiple schemes were presented utilizing multiple products and processes.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Address concerns of various Details that were not feasible to be constructed as shown as well as to alleviate
concerns of waterprooofing.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
An alternate Detail was provided which addressed multiple issues which was ultimately integrated into the
Construction Documents.

REVIEW
 
 
T.E.A.R.™ Review:
Intent on erecting steel by hand with belief that there is no place for a crane. This would result in an erection process
40% longer than if a crane was used.

T.E.A.R.™ Result:
Place crane partially inside building.
