Construction Risk Profiling™
ARCOR-Inc. brings its expertise to all stages in the life cycle of a construction project, however, it is a company that promotes an EARLY RISK RESPONSE APPROACH. This is a departure from the old traditional approach to construction risk where typically a waiting game is played until critical problems present. Attention, action and resources should rather be invested in the areas where there is early, major risk exposure identified and where the greatest cost and time savings can be achieved.
ARCOR-Inc. has developed a systematic proprietary methodology for the identification and measurement of DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION RISK, as well as a methodology that provides options for addressing, remediating and mitigating the identified construction risks. ARCOR-Inc. refers to their methodology as CONSTRUCTION RISK PROFILING™. The mission of ARCOR-Inc. is to be PROACTIVE rather than having to be REACTIVE, addressing the problems as they are identified, rather than waiting until critical problems present. The primary objective is to come in early so that risk profiling takes place at a point in the project\’s life cycle where potential future risks can be identified, mitigated and managed. With the early application of CONSTRUCTION RISK PROFILING™ and the potential for early identification, comes the OPPORTUNITY to reduce vulnerability and exposure by making the necessary adjustments and corrections at a less obstructive time in the building process. This of course has enormous implications for reducing the significant costs that come with litigation, claims, insurance costs and the interruption of business.
The range of services and hours of operation that many institutions provide, lend themselves to additional risks with regard to exposure to personal injury, disabled access compliance, storm water mitigation compliance, construction defects and construction claims. It is particularly relevant at this time, as building envelopes, in order to meet environmental and energy challenges, are being compromised with respect to the efficacy of the building envelope as an effective vapor barrier.
