Why Adolfson & Peterson

So, why partner with A&P? The answer to that lies in three key words – value beyond building. These words guide each and every project we undertake, and they form the foundation for our approach. Not content with the status quo, at A&P we go beyond delivering technically sound facilities on time and within budget to bring added value to the process in which your vision becomes a reality.

innovate.

At A&P we work smarter. We look for ways to do more with less. We stretch ourselves to answer the unanswerable questions, and solve the unsolvable problems. From inventive predevelopment and preconstruction services that set the right course for your project to the application of the latest construction technology at the job site, we foster a culture that rewards innovation. We empower all of our team members to think outside the box to make our clients’ lives easier.

collaborate.

Understanding the unique needs for your project is the key to a successful process. That’s why our team members are experts in more than construction. A&P’s proven partnering process drives success by establishing an atmosphere of collaboration from the earliest stages of a project. Our team members work with you to fully understand your business, not just your buildings. Our aim is to become a trusted advisor that truly understands what you do. Having this understanding allows us to ask the right questions and help you make the correct decisions for your continuing success.

outperform.

But we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Providing innovative solutions to deliver your wants, and not just your needs is our measurement of success.

Knutson Builds Masterpieces

Look out across the skyline. What do you see? A strikingly beautiful, thriving community full of wonderful people and unlimited opportunity. At Knutson, we also see that many of the landmark buildings throughout the communities we serve bear the mark of our construction expertise. It’s humbling and gratifying.

Our 500 employees provide the backbone of the services we provide and are a group of talented, passionate and innovative professionals. We cherish the opportunity to serve our clients and are proud that seventy percent of our business comes from owners with whom we have previously worked. For over ten decades we have preplanned, managed or built virtually every size and type of facility in the world — hundreds of clinics, hospitals, churches, assisted care facilities, libraries, museums, government facilities, environmental facilities and universities.

Today, with offices in Minneapolis, Iowa City, Rochester, Cedar Rapids, and Altoona much of our work comes from customers who rely on us as their preferred construction partner. These ongoing relationships say something important about long-term loyalty built on trust and success. We hope you enjoy your visit. If you have any questions, please call Brad Johnson or Dave Bastyr.

Our Commitment to Diversity

 Knutson has a long history of including minority and women partners in our project opportunities and is fully committed to meeting or exceeding contract and workforce goals.

Our strong relationship with both minority and women business organizations allows us to promote industry opportunities and hire the best candidates. Contractors who bid with Knutson always have a clear understanding that winning the bid is not based on price alone.

We demonstrate our commitment to diversity by:

  • Recognizing that it is in our best interest to encourage a broad base of subcontractors, suppliers and vendor relationships
  • Understanding that utilizing diverse subcontractors, suppliers and vendors contributes to the economic growth and expansion of the communities we serve

Our objective is to offer these businesses the opportunity to align with all other subcontractors, suppliers and vendors in the competitive marketplace.

During the procurement phase, we introduce the project, discuss the schedule, describe our contract and workforce diversity plan and conduct face-to-face interviews to help us develop a more personal relationship and have a better connection with potential candidates.

During construction, our Project Manager and Diversity Manager track and monitor all WM/SBE participation and assure that diversity goals are met.

Knutson is truly committed, knowledgeable and proven when it comes to setting and achieving diversity goals.

 

Services

It could be our Scandinavian roots. Or maybe it’s because we know we’re all in this together. It’s just in our nature to build smartly and cost effectively. And if we find a way to save thousands or even millions, you’ll see it back. Never cutting corners, but always seeing around the next corner.

No matter where you are in the process, we have the talent, the experience and the resources to make sure your construction project is a success. Our early involvement during preconstruction has helped many of our clients save millions and prevent costly surprises. We embrace the wide range of delivery methods used by owners today and cherish the opportunity to lead you through your construction journey.

Construction Management

The Owner’s Advocate

Construction projects can be highly complex. Few owners have the resources necessary to pay close attention to every detail — yet these details can make or break a project. Operating as an extension of the owner’s staff, Knutson can provide pre-planning, design, construction, engineering and management expertise to ensure a successful project regardless of the delivery method. Like a bulldog, we pledge to be tenacious in looking out for your best interests.

Agency CM
Under this delivery method, the construction manager acts as an extension of the owner’s staff and manages the work of all prime contractors who have direct contracts with the owner. An agency construction manager typically does not self-perform trade labor work on the project. This is the dominant method for public sector work.

CM at Risk
This method is used most often in the private sector. It combines the responsibilities of agency construction manager with the financial risk for the construction cost of the project. The construction manager prepares a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) prior to the start of work. In this delivery method the trade contractors may have direct contracts with the construction manager or the owner depending on the terms of the
owner/CM agreement.

CM as Constructor
This is similar to the agency CM method except it provides the CM with the opportunity to submit a bid for portions of the work. If the CM is awarded the bid they are allowed to perform that work under a separate contract with the owner. This method provides an advantage in schedule and quality control but is often perceived as a conflict of interest in instances where the CM is evaluating the performance, change order requests or quotations for its own trade contracts. CM as constructor is not always perceived as a separate delivery method from agency CM but is contractually very different. While this form has not gained wide acceptance in the public sector, increasing numbers of owners are supporting this as a viable and effective method.

Design/Build

Synergy

With design/build the architect and general contractor work together as a single entity to provide both design and construction services, reducing the delivery schedule. This method relies on one point of contact, which minimizes risk for the owner. This approach allows the team to eliminate any discrepancies in the design before construction starts. This also eliminates redundancy in the proposal and bidding procedures, which is typical in the traditional design-bid-build process.

Key benefits of this method are:

  • Guaranteed outcome
  • Single source accountability
  • Accelerated schedule
  • Guaranteed maximum price

General Contracting

Orchestra Leader

As a general contractor, Knutson and its team members resemble a great orchestra. When we blend the skill and expertise of our co-workers, subcontractors and suppliers, it can look like great music in the making. We provide the resources, expertise and leadership to ensure the safety, quality, timeliness and financial success of our projects. We offer:

Competitive Bid and Negotiated
We serve owners on competitive bid projects, where we begin building at the completion of the design phase, and negotiated projects, where we work with the owners and the design team during preconstruction to identify changes and cost-saving opportunities.

Self-Performing
As a self-performing contractor with trusted and proven professionals who work well as a team, we can be more proactive at anticipating and resolving construction issues because we are performing the critical tasks. This approach also ensures greater quality assurance, better communication, control over the schedule, cost savings and efficient utilization of manpower and machinery. We self-perform masonry, concrete, steel and carpentry.

Subcontractor Selection
We have excellent partnerships with trusted subcontractors throughout the communities we serve. These enduring relationships translate to better workmanship and lower costs for our clients.

Preconstruction

Charting the Right Course

Knutson’s early involvement prior to construction can greatly minimize costly surprises and allow you to ask what-if questions about budget, schedule, materials and design options. Our knowledge of construction costs, materials, structural alternatives, and mechanical and electrical systems can significantly impact the quality, cost and timing of construction.

No matter which delivery method you choose, Knutson will provide prompt and expert advice. Knutson has an expert preconstruction team who can provide you with:

  • Early Project Cost Evaluations (Program Pricing)
  • Site & Risk Assessments
  • Construction Milestone Budget & Schedule Establishment
  • System Analysis & Value Engineering
  • Real Time Estimating Services
  • Risk Mitigation Reviews
  • Design Phase Assessment & Cost Implications
  • Life-Cycle Analysis
  • Long Term Operational Expense & Maintenance Studies
  • 3D Building Information Modeling
  • Interim Life Safety Planning

Sustainability

Greener Construction

We are committed to sustainability and have many LEED Accredited Professionals with the knowledge and skills to steward the LEED certification process.

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, indicates a property’s overall sustainability by awarding points for just about any sustainable feature imaginable, from bike racks and rainwater reuse systems to energy-efficient lighting and plumbing fixtures. It is comprised of specific programs tailored to new buildings, existing buildings and tenant build-outs. There are different tiers of certification such as silver, gold or platinum.

Virtual Design and Construction

Seeing the Way

A picture may well be worth 1000 words and the ability to “see a way” is greatly enhanced through the use of virtual design and construction (VDC) and building information modeling (BIM). Today’s electronic modeling technologies are driving the construction industry away from two dimensional processes toward a true, model-based approach. Knutson leverages these important tools throughout design and construction to add value, facilitate decision-making, and communicate to clients, project team members, and project stakeholders. Modeling allows projects to achieve the greatest efficiency while visually depicting the overall design intent to project stakeholders.

Other Advantages of BIM

  • Visualizing the project’s schedule
  • Allowing for coordination of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection systems
  • Increasing the reliability of expected field conditions
  • Increasing the prefabrication of materials offsite –saving both time and costs
  • Analyzing logistics and cost scenarios
  • Reducing RFI’s
  • Identifying safety and quality issues before construction starts
  • Reducing time and cost of construction
  • Decreasing mistakes and rework in the field
  • Guiding owner and team decisions

Minnesota General Contractor

Watson-Forsberg is a Minnesota General Contractor.

We are a Minnesota building contractor with extensive experience in managing new construction, remodeling, and major additions.

Our contracting projects include building athletic, recreation, corporate, education,healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, distribution, multi-family housing, religious,retail, senior housing, non-profit, wellness, and many types of buildings in between. We have experience with historic restoration projects and adhere to sustainable construction practices.

Our diverse background of general contracting experience provides us with the skills and knowledge to be proactive contributors throughout the building planning process. We assist in uncovering challenges that later, during construction, could potentially be stumbling blocks. When construction is underway, if there are issues discovered, we discuss them promptly to allow for concise and thoughtful decision making, in the best interest of the project. Our experience has provided us with innovative and creative problem-solving skills. Our knowledge of Minnesota specific building requirements is essential to the successful completion of all our projects.

Mission and Values

Our mission is to create and maintain sustainable structures, services, and solutions for our partners and future generations – by building trusted relationships, founded in understanding.

Our approach is to offer MN region clients excellent experience and responsiveness – on time and within budget – while acting with integrity and concern for the past, present, and future.

In the extreme climates of Minnesota, we retain a tradition of quality craftsmanship through our unchanging values:

  • Integrity: doing what is morally and ethically right
  • Respect: treating others as we would like to be treated
  • Service: acting in the best interest of our clients
  • Stewardship: behaving with a sense of responsibility today to create a better tomorrow

History

In the 1920’s civil engineer Fred Watson, Sr. and architect Enock Forsberg began independent construction careers building a sturdy foundation for Watson-Forsberg. The sons of these men, Fredrick Watson and John Forsberg, expanded the construction operation into a major Twin Cities based building contractor in the 1950’s through the 1970’s.

In 1970 John Forsberg and Doug Watson continued to emphasize quality work, efficient scheduling, realistic budgeting, personal service and environmentally conscious construction. The business succeeded with many repeat relationships.

The next generation continued to carry forward the traditions in the 1970’s when Dale Forsberg and Donna Schlick joined Watson-Forsberg. Dale Forsberg became President, Mike Ashmore, Vice President and David Forsberg, Secretary in 1993.

Watson-Forsberg takes pride in the many team relationships we have participated in — helping maximize the efficiency of the construction process and resulting in quality projects built for generations to come.

Pre-Construction Services

When asked to provide a cost estimate, we typically rely on the four-phased approach above, advancing to a new phase depending on the level of design detail available.

Along the way, we look to proactively uncover and share alternative methodologies – opportunities for a project to save time, resources, or capital.

Upon identification, we share how to optimize for factors like facility, season, budget, and regulations. Past examples include changes to installation sequencing, material use, or contract engagement.

Subcontractor Selection

In our role, we assure the best bids from qualified contractors.

We divide projects into several bid categories to attract larger contractors and at the same time it allow qualified smaller and local contractors a fair chance to bid.

Collaborative bid categories are created with owners and design teams to tailor value and talent for you.

Finally, we collect and evaluate bids and input them into estimate sheets. We review the estimate-sheet and all bids, in an open process, with the client project team – in consideration of the factors above.

Subcontractor considerations:

An important bid category feature is “front-end” specs: info specifically developed for each project and explained in detail the areas of work, alternates, unit prices, safety, quality control, schedules, temporary facilities / enclosures, cleaning and close-out responsibilities.

Creating “Front-end” specs is key to communicating operational expectations. We also ensure quality via:

  • Prequalification of subcontractors (if requested)
  • Advertising via local publications, trade journals
  • iSQFT, our web based Invitation to Bid (ITB) software to inform the subcontracting community
  • Contacting Building Exchange, Trade Contractor & Minority/Disadvantaged Business Outreach plan rooms
  • Following up our ITB by contacting subcontractor’s via phone to confirm their intention to bid – a tedious, but essential step.

Construction Services

We tailor our approach to you because every project poses a unique set of challenges.

Often these include budget constraints, tight schedules, site conditions, and project-specific requirements.

We are capable and compatible with cutting edge tools (BIM, Sketch-up, etc.); however, we are judicious about their use on your project, especially if they may create great expense or are more appropriate for architects than contractors.

Most importantly, our approach involves listening.

An overview of our default approach to construction/project delivery – we gladly customize it to your specific project needs.

Managing Change

After proper safety measures, clear communication is the most important factor to a project’s success.

Our up-front investment with owners and designers to understand your organization’s construction objectives minimizes hassles down the road: this helps to quickly identify concerns around scope, cost, scheduling, resource availability and construction feasibility.

When construction begins, our weekly job site meetings are attended by owners, architects, building managers, Watson-Forsberg project managers and superintendents, and others (e.g., engineers, subcontractors) as necessary.

To ease communication we conduct weekly meetings to cover:

  • Schedule and progress-to-date
  • Review of relevant logs/progress with 3rd parties (e.g., subcontractors, government permit agencies, etc.)
  • Safety
  • Submittals
  • Budget and spend review
  • Review of planned spend and actual spend-to-date
  • Document/issue update
  • RFI, ASI, PR
  • Unanticipated issues, e.g., change orders (where applicable):
  • Potential conflicts, review possible changes with schedule/cost/ sustainability implications
  • Outline alternative means and methods to address issue
  • Next steps discussion
