Industry Experience ▼
In addition to our Multi-trade expertise Boyett delivers to our customers, we also have significant experience working within highly specialized and regulated industries. We leverage that experience when meeting the unique challenges posed in each of these fields.
“The only source of knowledge is experience.”
The bio-medical field is an intricate and complex environment. Regulatory requirements in this industry warrant precise planning and execution. Factors ranging from managing Facilities EH&S (Environmental Health and Safety), delivery scheduling, installation, and coexistence with regular employees are carefully planned from the very beginning of the project. Our goal is to complete the job while having the least amount of impact on the environment which many times is in operation.

Educational facilities are almost always challenging due to the nature such facilities. Products must be selected and installed to withstand wear and tear, and in some instances abuse. Careful consideration goes into every phase of the project as these buildings are built to last for several decades. These are buildings that literally see generations of student use. Specific requirements are engineered in, carefully monitored and inspected to ensure that the utmost quality goes into the final product.

Government facilities are often managed by various agencies that either design, engineer, manage, or inspect these projects. We almost always work in a secure environment where access is limited by the requirement of the agency in charge of the facility. Many times the contract drawings are designed using metric or engineers specifications and dimensions, which brings additional challenges when deciphering a project’s criteria.

Historic projects require the skill set to reproduce, revamp, upgrade, and reuse existing materials while maintaining function and integrating updated code requirements. Many of these buildings are decades, if not centuries, old. They are part of America and have been used for generations by countless different occupants. Historical renovations are particularly challenging since many of the components used 50 or 100 years ago are no longer available today. These buildings were constructed using artisan techniques that are very difficult to replicate. Though today we utilize modern technology and products, historic projects still require some of the same artisan skills as were used many years ago.

High Tech ▼
There is no doubt that the San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley are the home to some of the world’s most advanced technology companies; Facebook, Apple, Google, and Salesforce to name a few. These projects eventually become landmarks to some of the most innovative minds in the world. It goes without saying that the innovation starts as early as the design and subsequent construction of those buildings. With a clientele that is in perpetual motion, time is of the essence. These projects warrant construction activity to operate around the clock in order to deliver the project within a very specific timeframe. Often times construction personnel are required to use the very technology that the project will soon be housing. There are several programs that are utilized for the various phases of the construction process. For example, construction estimating, GPS guided layout tools, sharing of construction documents and creation of modeled 3D images of the construction plans. These are all just a part of what makes these types of projects interesting, challenging and rewarding.

The primary challenge of working in a hospitality locale is the frequent turnover of space: rooms need to be occupied after all. As such, scheduling needs to be well orchestrated and adhered to by the entire construction team. If one contractor falls behind, it can be a domino effect.
Many time the work is performed in an operating hospitality environment located in highly congested areas of a city, resulting in challenging logistics which require creative solutions.

Health Care ▼
It is common for hospitals to have extremely stringent inspection guidelines which can delay completion of projects. It can be difficult to get a rhythm going under these conditions with so many trades involved. Boyett has experience with supply only or supply and installation of materials on these type of projects.

Whether a new store or a renovation many retail clients require their stores to be open for major holidays. This requires the project team be ready for long days and even weekends to meet aggressive deadlines. Many general contractors specialize in retail work only and tend to travel the U.S. opening one store after another. This can result in working with out-of-state contractors who are unfamiliar with local labor. Often times, either millwork or kitchen equipment etcetera has been ordered ahead of time. The downside is that it many time a arrives early, creating logistical challenges for the team as they must now navigate the “rough” work in and around finished products.

Lath and Plaster ▼
Lath and Plaster has evolved since the introduction of drywall in the early 1950’s into a more artisan based trade. While exterior stucco is still common in our market, Boyett focuses on interior and exterior artisan based work. The Bay Area’s wealth of historic buildings provide endless opportunities for preservation, restoration, ornamental plaster, and special finishes. In the early days of the Italian Finishes, Boyett sent our crews around the country to areas where plastering contractors were not yet familiar with the materials. Today Lath & Plaster is our most specialized division.
