An owner expects a building to be leased or sold with
little to no documentation on a building. This can often make the task
of brokering a deal with a new tenant quite difficult. For this very
reason Prime Edge has come up with various solutions for real estate
brokers. Depending on the type of building and its use, different levels
of information and documentation are necessary. Prime Edge has two solutions
which can be customized to fit a specific customer's need.
The Quick Sketch Plan (QSP) is useful and cost efficient when no floor
plan exists and a general layout is needed. An AutoCAD floor plan can
be generated quickly and easily to approximately represent the space
and layout. Measurements are made in key areas to provide a customer
with a close representation of the building. However, Prime Edge does
not recommend the QSP if the accuracy of the drawing or sizes of the
rooms are an issue. In these situations, Prime Edge recommends a standard
Prime Edge As-Built which is always done to a high level of accuracy.
With a user name and password, customers can take advantage of our
web technology to view floor plans, digital images or other essential
information for a building/space for lease or sale. If you already have
a website, Prime Edge's web development team can work with you to set
up a direct link to Prime Edge or we can send you AutoCAD files that
may be incorporated on your website.
As-builts for a building can save much time for a potential tenant
or owner. Lack of as-builts and documentation on the building will be
the initial hurdle for any proposed project. An excellent set of as-builts
can help a potential buyer make a more informed decision about the building
and can shorten the decision making process.
An owner should expect to have accurate and complete as-built information
on its buildings. Prime Edge has found that most owners do not receive
very thorough information on their buildings. Prime Edge believes if
an owner takes a more proactive approach to keeping up to date and accurate
plans, it will prove extremely beneficial and cost effective. Prime
Edge can work in several capacities to provide an owner with as-builts
that will be useful for tenant improvements, future leasing or sale,
maintenance and many other areas. Prime Edge can work with an owner's
general contractor to ensure accuracy and document changes and deviations
from the original design. It is common for changes to be made during
construction. What becomes the challenge is making sure those changes
are reflected in the as-built set provided to an owner by its general
contractor or architect. Prime Edge has found that too often as-builts
are turned over to an owner without any verification or checking that
the as-builts accurately reflect field conditions.
If an owner has an upcoming project, the first thing he or she will
most likely need to give the architect is the existing as-built documentation.
If an owner's as-builts are lacking or there is simply no existing documentation,
Prime Edge is here to provide a cost effective and timely solution.
We can provide as-builts with a higher level of accuracy at a more economical
cost than architects or engineers. We specialize in as-builts and can
actually free up the time of architects and engineers so they may work
on creating and designing an owner's new space. This ultimately allows
for a more efficient design process.
Prime Edge can work for an owner or directly for his or her construction
team. We can provide as-builts either to get a project started or to
ensure that an owner receives accurate as-builts at the end of a project.
Regardless of whom hires Prime Edge, it always remains the owner's responsibility
to request accurate as-builts. On your next project, make sure you do
not just get any set of as-builts. Remember, if you don't have Prime
Edge as-builts, then you don't have as-builts.
Prime Edge is enthusiastic about its as-builts and is pleased to offer
a program to property managers that will improve their efficiency and
aid in their leasing. Accurate as-builts can be of great value due to
the importance of having reliable and accessible information. Prime
Edge provides a unique product unsurpassed in quality. We are also more
economical than architectural firms who do not specialize in this type
of work. We are focused on as-builts and employ the latest technology
in retrieving, documenting and distributing building information to
our customers. Prime Edge as-builts help minimize travel time to a site
by allowing a potential tenant to view a floor plan from his/her office.
This efficient internet based presentation of plans can help hone in
on serious tenants who can identify before an onsite visit whether the
space suits their business needs. Prime Edge's computerized drawing
files will allow you to quickly and easily access different floor plans
for viewing, printing or as a reference.
As a financial lender on a construction project, it is often quite difficult
to visit a project and check the progress of construction. Prime Edge
helps lending institutions keep up to date on a project by providing
digital images and as-built documentation via the internet. Now keeping
current on a project is as easy as a click of a button from your office.
If you possess in-house construction experience, then you can have the
opportunity to review our detailed information and save the cost of
paying a high priced inspector. Otherwise, Prime Edge can evaluate the
percent complete on a project in addition to documenting construction
progress. Prime Edge's team has a strong construction background and
was founded by a graduate of Stanford University with a BS in Civil
Engineering: Structures & Construction and a MS in Construction
Management. Prime Edge is also a licensed general contractor in the
State of California and has experience in design and construction of
commercial projects. If you would like to see a sample of our on-line
digital images or as-built documentation, please contact us for access
