Primus Builders will present a “Day-in-the-Life”
On January 9th, Primus Builders will present a “Day-in-the-Life” in their company.
The purpose of the ‘Day in the Life’ workshop is to inspire the next Generation of Designers, Engineers and Architects in the Manufacturing and AEC fields. By attending this workshop, you will get the chance to listen to a real-life role model telling their story about their career path and their typical day to day work – while also informing you of how their industry is technologically advancing and the prospects for the future.
Most post-secondary students are focused on learning as much as they can in hopes of finding a job placement and career path with companies like Primus. But do you truly understand what they do? Will you be ready to work on day one? If not, how long will it take you to learn both the HOW and the WHY? By attending this session you will get the opportunity to ask questions and perhaps line up a possible internship or path to employment.
Our webinar series will give you the opportunity to speak directly to these aspiring career professionals. ThinkEDU will market to our large student database and work hard to get you a large audience. There is no cost to you (other than your time for the webinar).
When Richard O’Connell and Erik Gunderson founded Primus Builders in 2000, their goal was to provide specialized construction services to the cold storage and distribution industries. Since then, Primus has grown to become a leading provider of design-build services for the distribution, food and beverage and medical device sterilization industries. Primus’s team of more than 90 specialists includes site selection experts, architects, engineers, process planners, estimators, thermal construction and construction management professionals all dedicated to providing superior design and construction services on every project.
Primus has grown to include three divisions: Primus Design Services, LLC; Primus Builders, Inc.; and Primus Thermal Division. Each company specializes in a specific component of the design-build process that, together, are the foundation of the firm’s single-source approach. Because all three companies are located under one roof, communication is effortless. Primus is able to implement owner goals into a single agenda that delivers projects within budget, schedule and to the owner’s desired level of quality.
Primus has been the design-builder of choice on over 300 projects. The majority of these are repeat business and reflect the firm’s commitment to building lifelong relationships with its clients.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Primus is committed to integrating up-to-the-minute technology that improves its ability to meet project goals for budget, schedule and quality. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the latest application the team has implemented to push its design and construction processes forward.
BIM is the use of software (in Primus’s case – Revit) to demonstrate a facility’s physical characteristics in a digital way. Traditionally, architects relied on two-dimensional drawings to convey design. BIM allows the design team to showcase a project’s attributes in a 3D model before construction begins.
The process begins at project kick off. Primus Design Services, LLC works closely with the project Owner to determine the goals for their facility and clearly communicate its intended function. These concepts become the backbone of the design and are then translated into a 3D model. The Owner is able to view the model and make critical choices regarding layout, electrical and mechanical components, building materials and other essential elements during the design phase. Doing so speeds the process and reduces challenges in the field.
