Javen Construction



Pre-Construction Services

Javen Construction provides a wide range of preconstruction services including constructability reviews, cost estimating, value-engineering, and preliminary scheduling.  You can rely on Javen’s experience to help get your project out of the ground.   Our knowledge and understanding of building systems allows us to help Clients with critical information needed for feasibility studies and Certificate of Need applications. 

Construction Management

Within a Construction Management contract, Javen Construction helps our Clients effectively manage their costs while monitoring their budgets and master-plans allowing Clients to maximize available funds.  Working collaboratively with the Client and the design team, Javen will act with integrity and transparency to provide pre-construction services including defining bid packages, assessing value-engineering options, and monitoring the building life-cycle costs.  Continuity from pre-construction through construction minimizes RFIs and change orders positioning the project for a successful completion for the best value

General Construction

Javen is well respected in the competitive bid market for both public and private Owners.  We are comfortable working under a single-source contract or a general trades contract.  Ultimately, we value teamwork whether we are working with our employees and subcontractors or with other separate prime contractors.  We will work collaboratively with the building team to deliver a superior finished project.

Safety and Training

Safety is of paramount importance for our employees, our clients, our subcontractors, and our bottom line. This commitment is reflected in our safety MOD rate which is consistently under 1.0. Our project managers and field personnel work hard to promote a culture of safety through their day to day actions and enforce our safety policy and safety program. They hold pre-construction meetings with subcontractors to discuss and strategize how to best approach a given project in a safe and efficient manner.

All Javen employees have been through the 10-hour OSHA safety training and the project managers and superintendents have received 30-hour OSHA cards. We educate field personnel on an ongoing basis via weekly ‘Toolbox Talks’ and our annual safety conference.  Javen contracts with an independent  safety firm that performs jobsite inspections every 1 to 4 weeks, keeps employee forklift/boomlift certifications up to date, and is on call 24X7 for any safety related issue.
