Tremco understands that this new post-recession market challenges contractors with even tighter project schedules and margins, ever-changing building trends to chase, and greater liability due to “green” building and evolving construction delivery methods. Our goal is to provide superior technolgies that help you deliver on time and reduce the need for call backs.
Coping with Weather Conditions and the Project Schedule
Contractors are certainly not responsible for adverse weather conditions, particularly in areas that have heavy rain, prolonged snow or sleet but these adverse weather conditions can result in construction delays, cost overruns and missed project deadlines. Tremco has developed technologies that can help overcome weather and extreme temperature changes. Consider just a few of our innovative technologies:
Green & Damp Concrete
PUMA (polyurethane-methacrylate) Technology
Documented, Tested Performance to Address Current Building Trends
Contractors are always looking for new clients to work for when the current building project is completed, and this is just one of the construction industry challenges you face. Active sectors include health care, data centers, education facilities and industrial buildings such as warehouses. We too are keeping our eye on these trends, to offer you documented, tested solutions that help ensure compatibility, continuity and high performance to help minimize callbacks and allow you to focus on finding projects in areas where building is at its height.
Liability from “Green” Building
Most major projects have strong ambitions to be green, especially flagship properties in the commercial space, yet contractors involved in “green” building projects are being asked to provide guarantees that the end result will meet a specified certification level under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program of the U.S. Green Building Council – this creates risk and liability for contractors. Tremco offers comprehensive warranty options for our product systems to help you mitigate that risk from ground up. You can contact your local Sales Representative or visit our sample warranty library.
Evolving Construction Delivery Methods
Not only are contractors increasingly being asked to participate in public-private partnerships that “skin in the game” by helping to finance a construction project, the design-build delivery model has become the market leader in all types of construction projects. Where the traditional design-bid-build contracting method created a situation where the owner negotiated specific and separate contracts with multiple specialists. Now while the integration of the design-build functions under a single entity or team fosters collaboration and increases productivity – the shift to a design-build business model has exposed more contractors to professional liability risks. Again, Tremco helps to mitigate these risks with documented, proven system performance backed by comprehensive warranties.
