Facilities Maintenance Services

Russell – Your Trusted Partner in Facilities Maintenance

Off-site and Regional Facilities Managers trust and appreciate our dependability, performance and efficiency when they need something done right and done now. They call on us routinely to assess situations at their properties without them having to make the trip to each individual site.

As always, trust and reliability are trademarks of Russell Construction Services. Our facilities maintenance division delivers the same quality work we’ve been providing for over 80 years, but on a smaller scale that works well for small organizations. When you need expertise for occasional repairs, installations or renovations without complications, trust Russell to provide qualified, pre-vetted tradesmen to perform small or large repair and maintenance projects.

Local Outsourcing of Facilities Maintenance for Expert Service

Many organizations have the occasional need for reliable building maintenance on an as-needed basis but do not have enough need for employing a full or part time person. Russell provides skilled craftsmen to augment your facilites maintenance needs with knowledgeable people – when and where you need them.

Taking Care of Facilities While You Take Care of Business

Some of our clients that depend on Russell include companies that are based out-of-state and have the occasional need for reliable facilites services without the need for shopping and vetting carpenters, plumbers or electricians to find reliable tradespeople. We employ fully vetted, quality tradesmen and technicians to address your facilities management needs.

Pre-Construction Services

Russell Construction Services offers a full range of pre-construction services needed to prepare and inform your team prior to beginning a project. As a vision moves from an idea to a construction project, many questions must be answered to enable you to understand expectations, costs and timelines.

Pre-Construction Questions

  • Renovation, demolition or new construction?
  • Can I break up the project into phases? What makes sense?
  • How much will it cost?
  • How long will construction take?
  • How do I run my business during construction?
  • What unplanned obstacles should I plan for?
  • What kind of building permits will I need?
  • Can I use my property for my vision?
  • Does my soil “perc” and why is that important?
  • Do I need to worry about Act 250?
  • Most importantly: Where do I start?!

Our pre-construction services include reviewing the vision for your project and developing a plan to help guide you through the process. Nobody can accurately estimate the cost of new construction or a building renovation without the expertise of professionals that understand all elements of construction that are not immediately evident to the building owner at the idea stage.

Expert Advice

In addition to preliminary estimating and helping establish a working budget, our pre-construction team offers expert advice on:

  • Design decisions
  • Building materials
  • The permitting process
  • Wastewater and stormwater management
  • Traffic studies
  • Value engineering options
  • Cost analysis
  • Scheduling
  • Phasing
  • Land use recommendations
  • LEED Certfication requirements and benefits
  • And more…

If relevent, land acquisition and life-cycle costs may also be evaluated.
