At The Cincinnatus Group, we’ve developed a proprietary method that saves owners and developers comprehensively, a program that covers the entire life-cycle of an HVAC ductwork acquisition and installation project.
In this article, we go over the basics of savings on installation. Our proven methods have demonstrated 25% savings in ductwork installation, nationwide.
The answer is not mysterious, but it does require experience and proven relationships with reliable duct fabricators, shipping services, and Building Information Modeling experts. At The Cincinnatus Group, we bring our expertise to the table every day, providing high quality results at significant savings.
The end-point in the process of ductwork acquisition is on-site installation. Traditionally, fabrication quality is good but lacking in precision. Not all pieces will be accurately fitted to their purpose and experienced labor must cut and fit, even problem-solve on site.
This takes time and involves some of your most expensive labor, including a supervisor. Fittings and accessories may be delivered as ordered, but insufficient once challenges occur on site, like conflicts between trades using the same space, or a design change not reflected on someone’s blueprints.
At The Cincinnatus Group, we work to deliver shrink-wrapped, labeled, and numbered ductwork pieces, each precisely fit to its purpose in the building and as easy to install as a numbered Lego set.
Your most inexperienced, and least expensive, labor can install the ductwork with ease — saving time, headaches, and a significant amount of money.
A step back from installation is determining HVAC ductwork needs at the building site. Traditionally this is done by someone experienced in Filed Measuring and Sketching (FMSL).
At The Cincinnatus Group, this can be done in a virtual model of the building, not only allowing us to place precision ductwork orders but also to provide coordination drawings and prevent conflicts between trades.
Not only is there an FMSL labor savings in determining ductwork requirements, the reduction in potential trade conflicts saves even more. Further, this level of precision in planning allows us to place ductwork fabrication orders that reduce the number of needed joints and fittings, providing both a savings in fabrication and in on-site installation labor.
At The Cincinnatus Group, we provide for a proactive delivery schedule, with full truck loads assigned to pre-planned project zones. You get what you need where you need it to keep your crews “hanging and banging.”
Called to solve, where others struggle, our passion is to bring programs, processes, and optimization to the support of owners and developers who are dealing with the complexity of HVAC ductwork acquisition and installation.
Our market niche is the Implementation of HVAC Ductwork Material Management Programs for Owners and Developers.
Our methodology is a proprietary program found nowhere else: DuctFlow PPO™ > Program ♦ Process ♦ Optimization.
