New Division Expands Dalton’s Capabilities
We have expanded our building services with the launch of a new division called Dalton Works.
“The idea behind Dalton Works is simple: we’ve streamlined our project delivery methodology—the Alternative Approach to Building—to expand our capabilities,” said Andrew Dalton, CEO, The Dalton Company. “This has allowed us to take on certain kinds of projects that, in the past, were not the right fit for our organization.”
Projects that our new division has been established to handle can be categorized in three ways:
Coordinating a series of services to deliver a final project defined by a limited scope of work, such as a kitchen and office renovations, or any other space in or around your facility.
Providing a service, such as repairs to a railing, an interior painting job, or electrical system maintenance, as a one-off project, or on a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly basis.
Dispatching Dalton Works crews on time-sensitive, quick turnaround projects, such as burst pipes, fires or mechanical failures, etc., which require immediate response and completion.
The division has already completed several projects for a handful of private clubs and private schools.
“Renovating a bathroom or performing emergency repairs to a damaged boiler does not require the same amount of time and resources as expanding a school gym or building a new clubhouse,” explained Lucas Hrinco, Director, Dalton Works.
“Dalton Works employs leaner, more nimble processes that are guided by the same core values that Dalton uses to deliver all its projects: integrity, commitment, accountability, responsibility and experience. Dalton Works proudly self-performs the majority of tasks required to complete a project, and partners with handpicked, highly skilled trades when required.”
Traditionally, our internal project teams are comprised of five or six people, who engage a broader team of consultants and trades through a multitude of phases. This large, multi-disciplinary project team collaborates for several months, or sometimes well over a year, to plan and execute a project, depending on its size and complexity.
But not all projects demand this level of planning or breadth of resources. The expedited approach that Dalton Works employs allows our team to quickly marshal the resources necessary to build or maintain a facility efficiently with the level of quality our firm has been synonymous with for over 75 years.
“We offer many benefits to facility managers or general managers in organizations such as private clubs, independent schools, religious and cultural institutions, or any other facilities,” said Lucas.
“When Dalton Works takes on a project, we assume the risk and become accountable for the work completed, which can ease a lot of pressure for people in these roles. Also, we offer proactive, creative solutions to difficult challenges through planning and an open, collaborative environment that capitalizes on the experience and talent of our team members. So, when you’re engaging Dalton Works you benefit from the fact that we apply the vast experience we’ve gained through larger, more complex projects to your assignment.”
