Irrigation, Landscaping & Hardscaping.
Our Landscape Construction Division has worked with some of the most respected real estate developers, general contractors and homebuilders in the country and has played an integral part in some of Central Florida’s most recognizable construction projects.
Aside from irrigation and landscaping installation, we also have the experience and resources to project manage a much broader scope of work, to include: concrete pavers, decking, docks, entry features, erosion control, fencing, gazebos, pergolas, pottery, playgrounds, retaining walls, shade structures, sidewalks, site furnishings, site grading, site lighting, sports courts, and water features.
Many owners, developers and general contractors have come to trust our numbers when budgeting out their projects. Whether we’re providing budget numbers or hard bid numbers, you can count on us to dig in and provide you with a solid estimate of what it’ll take to complete the project… something that we can both be proud of for years to come.
Our goal is not to be “low on bid day”… we’d much prefer to be “accurate on bid day” and help prevent any surprises on installation day! Some people get so caught up in the bidding and buyout phase of the project that they forget or choose to ignore the execution phase. We refuse to let ourselves to get so caught up in winning a job over price that set ourselves up for failure when it comes time to deliver.
Takeoffs: We perform most take-offs using an on-screen software product that allows for better efficiency and more accurate results. If there is a problem with the plans, we’d much rather find out during the bidding phase of the project. Another benefit of using this type of software is that it allows us to provide color coded prints to assist with scope meetings, jobsite meetings and our crews during installation.
Estimating: Our standard turn-around time for a proposal is 3-5 days, however sometimes we can jump something much quicker. If you need something fast, just ask! We’ll always do our part to be a team player.
Value Engineering: We are pretty good at finding ways to save money without jeopardizing the integrity of the project. Regardless of the reason, we can assist with finding alternative solutions to get the job done while still meeting jurisdictional requirements.
Change Orders: Simple change orders can get priced on the fly and happen pretty quickly, but some require a lot more work. Our estimating team helps out frequently with larger, more complicated change order requests and often works with architects and engineers to help solve problems in the field to keep the job running smoothly. Having our estimating department involved in change orders ensures fair and accurate pricing, plus helps to make sure that all the paperwork is being handled properly.
Some of the most exciting projects for us are those that allow us to participate in the design process. Whether we are providing a full set of construction documents or participating in the creative discussion, you’ll find that we are full of ideas to make your project a success.
There’s also those projects that have already been through the design process, but fall short on expectation. It’s those times when having the right contractor as part of your team can make a big difference. We are able to visualize the project on paper, anticipate problems and provide solutions to ensure that the final product meets the customers expectation.
Choosing the right group of subcontractors is critical to ensuring the success of your project. We are very proud of the reputation that we’ve built for being a team player and for always performing at the highest level.
Aside from providing quality workmanship… we work well under pressure. We’ve been doing this a long time and we know what it takes to get the job done! That’s why many project managers and jobsite superintendents request to have GES on the job. They know what we’re capable of and it gives them confidence to know that we’ll be there at the end of the project… when they need us most!
Upon request, we would be happy to provide references for recently completed projects.
Maintenance & Warranty
We have always been a full service landscaping contractor. Once the installation is complete, our goal is always to take over the maintenance of the project too. GES is the largest privately-held commercial landscaping company in Florida. We have the resources to handle any size project. Please visit our landscape maintenance division to learn more about these services.
For larger projects, it’s not uncommon for the maintenance of the landscaping to begin before the project is completed and turned over to the owner. We often provide maintenance pricing as part of the pre-construction process to help establish budgets and to ensure that the property is turned over at the end of the job looking it’s best. This is something that owners usually don’t think about until it’s too late… If you need maintenance pricing, please make sure to ask.
We are proud of the projects that we’ve completed and want those jobsites to look good for years to come. You won’t have to ask us twice to take care of any warranty issues that are our responsibility.
Our standard warranty provides coverage against defects in workmanship for up to 1 year. Our standard warranty does not include any coverage for maintenance related issues or any damages caused by situations outside of our control or scope of work.
Our extended warranty provides coverage for up to 3 years against defects in workmanship or any maintenance related issues. In order to qualify for the extended warranty, GES must be awarded a three-year landscaping maintenance contract within 10 days after completing the installation. It’s simple, if we install it and maintain it – it shouldn’t die! We take a lot of pride in our projects and will help develop a maintenance program that protects your investment.
