This is where the fun starts, and we will be with you every step of the way. During the construction phase, we'll leverage the diverse backgrounds of our Project Managers and Superintendents to ensure your project is done right.
During the construction phase of a project, we place our complete focus on contract administration and field execution. The focus of contract administration is to procure the supplies and services outlined in the contract schedule and within budget. As such, contract administration serves as the primary part of the procurement process that assures that the contract is successfully executed. Subcontractor coordination plays an important role in timely and efficient construction. We place reliable and trustworthy subcontractors on all of our projects. We require all subcontractors to submit a prequalification form in order to mitigate the risks associated with commercial construction.
During the buyout process, NGC creates bid packages and specific scopes of work tailored to each trade and unique to the project. This process results in more responsive subcontractors, higher quality proposals, and eliminates scope gap. Subcontractor proposals are analyzed for completeness and major trades are interviewed by NGC’s Project Manager and Superintendent, and sometimes by the Project Executive. NGC carefully pre-qualifies and selects subcontractors for the work and may require subcontractors to provide a performance and payment bond to protect both NGC and the Owner from a subcontractor who falls on hard times.
The project manager will provide continuous support to the superintendents and will perform regular master schedule updates with the superintendent and transfer said information to the subcontractors.
NGC works diligently to manage quality throughout construction by requiring high-quality materials consistent with the design standards. NGC will create internal punch lists using our integrated Project Management tool, Procore, during the entire construction period as we phase through the project. This tool allows a quick, thorough, and organized punch list creation that can be assigned to each trade.
NGC has strict policies and procedures to ensure that each subcontractor carries adequate insurance limits specific to each project and is prepared to shoulder the financial responsibility of any accidents or losses that occur as a result of their work.
NGC’s payment procedure for subcontracts guarantees the maximum protection against mechanic’s liens and stop notices from subcontractors and their suppliers. NGC carefully monitors lien waivers from subcontractors and suppliers to protect the project from encumbrances and the dangers of subcontractor insolvency.
NGC executes a written safety program administered by our General Superintendent in charge of field operations and our retained third-party safety consultant. The safety program is approved by NGC’s insurance carriers and complies with all applicable Federal and State laws.
NGC’s safety consultant will make regular job site visits and written reports, and certain subcontract trades will be required to have job walks by their in-house safety personnel. NGC’s site superintendent will manage all site construction activities and the surrounding areas indirectly affected by the construction. Ted, along with his assistants, will implement the following measures to ensure subcontractor quality, performance, and safety:
- Daily reporting by NGC and all subcontractors performing work on site.
- Weekly subcontractor meetings that will cover topics such as safety, schedule, deliveries, RFI’s, submittals, and new documents.
- Weekly Tool Box Talks by all trades as required by OSHA.
- Job Hazard Analysis for high risk activities
- Two-week look-ahead schedules updated weekly identifying specific trade work to be performed.
- Delivery inspections by all subcontractors for receipt of materials to ensure the approved products are being utilized for the project.
- Collaboration with the local inspectors, State Fire Marshal, State Elevator Inspector, and others regarding code requirements, planned inspections, and construction progress.
- Each subcontractor will be required to have a competent person on site at all times during their operations for safety.

Wendy Birdsall, Lincoln Chamber of Commerce
NGC not only builds the highest quality of buildings but does so with great integrity.
Adam Criswell, Speedway Properties
From the day they started the project to the day they finished, NGC personnel were professional, ethical, schedule driven and totally focused on our satisfaction. They are truly committed to constructing the finest possible building and they accept nothing short of this from their sub-contractors. Every concern we had was addressed quickly and thoroughly.
Patrick Phelan, DLR Group
NGC's qualified team provided pre-planning with the ownership and DLR Group prior to construction as well as regular meetings and communication with the design team and subcontractors throughout the project. Their coordination efforts helped resolve the common day-to-day challenges of a commercial project of this character by utilizing technology and sound judgement.
Steven Hopper, Shamrock Development
Their true open book approach to costs, information, and prudent reviews with the design team not only helped keep the project in line with budget and vision, but it also allowed construction to begin four months earlier than traditional methods. Their team provided a seamless transition from preconstruction into the actual construction phase.
Steve Schmidt, Frontier Bank
What a pleasure it was to work with NGC! The crew was absolutely great and I truly appreciate their attention to timelines. The weekly reports via email were beneficial and informative as well.
Cara Mouw, University of Nebraska Medical Center
