Gulf & Eastern Electro - Mechanical LLC | Why Choose Us
We in G&E consider construction as an art of coordination & management and undertake any MEP contract, small or big as a challenge and are on our toes from day one. We collaborate and closely coordinate with Main Contractor to integrate MEP activities into his Overall Project Completion Program and suitably strategize, plan and deploy resources with sole objective of delivering our obligated works in a hassle free and timely manner.
We believe in doing things right the first time and accord high priority to detailed engineering which is focal point of downstream procurement & constructional actions. Our experienced design & engineering personnel use CAD packages, 3D coordination & clash detection tools to produce coordinated and constructible shop drawings.
When called for we carryout Value Engineering by examining performance and/or function in relation to cost in a structured process and propose best alternative to the customer. Also other than just reducing the initial costs, we carefully carryout detailed analysis of the costs associated with maintenance and upkeep and appropriately select plant, equipment and systems to reduce overall lifecycle cost of owning a project.
Design & Build
We were amongst the first few companies in the UAE and Middle East to adapt itself to the international practice of design & build – an engineering strategy that ensures a single point of responsibility for combining the principles of design and build with total efficiency.
Benefits of design & build principles are:
- Compared to traditional project procurement practice, construction can start earlier, reducing the overall project delivery time - from inception to completion.
- No tender time loss (normally 2 months) as concept planning and project costing are done simultaneously.
- Client can fix a definite budget (lump sum) even before the design is complete.
- Saves tendering time and tender evaluation time as concept planning and project costing are done simultaneously.
- Single point responsibility – no variations & claims
- No extension of time due to design / detail faults / delays in information.
To the extent possible and practicable we adapt modular construction methodology.
The pre-engineered assemblies are constructed in controlled environment supported through use of 3D modelling (BIM/ Revit); significantly reducing wastages, rework etc., while increasing efficiency, accuracy, consistency and quality of finished installation. As the modular construction (pre-fabrication) can be undertaken simultaneously or in advance of commencement of site activity it eventually results in overall saving on project completion time besides maintaining desired quality and standardization of MEP installations.
Fast Track Construction
We have completed several design & build, fast track projects with reduced project duration by overlapping the design & construction phases of the project.
We firmly believe that by embracing a partnering approach amongst the project stakeholders; use of modular pre-fabricated assemblies and 3D modelling/ clash detection software / processes (reducing reworks and wastage of materials, man-hours & time); the pre-engineered projects (EPC) project completion time can be also be reduced.
