The Construction Partner Relationship
A quick look through our website will tell you that a construction partner relationship with Ouellet Construction is par none.
A more in-depth review of our services will reveal that Ouellet takes pride in offering quality services which range from pre-construction to post-construction, assisting clients throughout each project and beyond.
And, though it’s implied in our messaging and throughout our customer testimonials and reviews, we’d like to offer a clearer understanding of what it’s like to work with the Ouellet Construction team as your dedicated business partner.
What to Expect
When you hire the professional team at Ouellet Construction, you can expect the following:
We understand that no one likes surprises. Communication is a vital aspect of forming a successful business partnership with our clients. Whether it’s an increase in costs, a delay in the timeline, or something else, we believe in telling our clients exactly what’s going on. We do our best to anticipate any challenges or delays that may occur and to come up with strategic plans to avoid any potential issues or setbacks. When unexpected issues do arise, we let our clients know right away, and offer suggested methods for resolution.
“What I appreciate most about working with Ouellet Construction is that there are no surprises. They are great communicators—upfront and direct.” – Patricia Crandlemire Murphy, P.E., Director of Physical Plant, Colby College
Projects that are On Schedule.
Ouellet understands the importance of meeting (or beating) the deadlines that our clients set. We know that it’s important for projects to be completed as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality, so that our clients can continue with day-to-day operations. Not only can delays be frustrating to our clients, but they can also be quite costly. We work closely with clients to ensure the project keeps moving along, so we can meet deadlines, and stay within (or under) budget.
“Ouellet made sure product and equipment were delivered and kept the crews moving in all kinds of weather, designed things if we needed it, had a sense of humor, and stayed cool under pressure. A real gem!”
– Mary-Lou Boucouvalas, Library Director, Graves T. Memorial Library
Projects that are Within Budget.
Just like deadlines, Ouellet understands how crucial it is to complete projects within budget, or under, when possible. Consistent communication, effective project management, and close collaboration with our clients, architects, engineers, consultants, subcontractors, and suppliers help us develop and control processes that are simple, productive, and cost-effective.
“Ouellet Construction keeps their promises, period. They were fair, honest, organized and timely. My project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. I never had to chase them to do anything before, during or post construction…”
– Mike Scholl, Coastal Maine Pediatric Dentistry
