Why is it convinient to work with a company like AK Engineering?

We believe that everyone has to do their job. Customer (investor) at a certain stage of its development, decides to build a facility. His task - to choose the professionals in construction management  and to do their business without wasting its energy and resources on non-relevant functions and not being distracted by the many nuances associated with the organization of building, he has to control only the obligations assumed by the management company under the general contractor contract.

What is the philosophy of the AK Engineering?

AK Engineering is considering the construction of a project solely as the control and execution of the three major criteria - the construction budget, duration and quality of work, regulated by project documentation and customer’s requirements.

In what areas does the company operate?

AK Engineering - a professional company for managing construction projects, which means it has no limitations, except for highly specialized areas which are the construction of highway interchanges, bridges, underground constructions. The company interests in complicated and unique projects.

What is our pricing policy?

The company is considering the customer as a partner in the project to build and builds long-term relationships with them. So first of all transparent relationship is welcomed based on the commission, the weighted average amount of the general contracting services in the market, ranging from 4 to 5% of the value of construction works, depending on the size and complexity of the project.

In addition, the company  admires the action of the customer encouraging the general contractor to optimize the budget and time frame leading to the result when: the customer is saving money and spending them on their business development, general contractor –is getting the official award from the customer for the money saved or reduced construction time. Indeed, practically every project has the opportunity to optimize the process of building without loss of quality.

What are the advantages over the traditional company’s approach with construction equipment and workers?

There is a misunderstanding among the customers: namely, that the main criterion of  general contractor selection is to have own construction equipment and workers, and as a result, the cost advantage of the organization.

First of all, there are companies in the world that can do all kinds of work in the construction process solely on their own. General contractor, always uses the services of subcontractors in different respect.

Secondly, the general contractor is interested in maximimal application of  own logistical and human resources. Managing a company is flexibilin selecting subcontractors directed only by the principle of professionalism.The tender is arranged for each types of work among potential contractors.

Thirdly, in case of emergency, in terms of executors failure to meet the target, contractor tries to cover up the actions of its own structure by all possible means. While the management company simply applies penalties to the subcontractor and replaces it with another that passed prequalification tender in case of a repeat of a situation,
