PROCESS

Listen & Learn

We won't know if we can support and/or offer potential value to you, until we get to know you...

 

The intent of this first interaction and/or meeting with ABS is to gain some understanding of what you may be trying to accomplish, and to offer a preliminary path forward should you agree it's warranted. 

Establish Priorities

Your feedback matters, and is  the most critical component of any solution that's identified.

At ABS our mindset is such that our first priority is you. Period.

 

As such, it's important to know what aspects of your facility are causing you the most frustration.

 

Based on that feedback, our partnership with you can begin by conducting an assessment of your facility.

 

Our preliminary feasibility assessment (PFA) will identify/establish possible solutions that minimize risk, maximize value and address the concerns you've shared.

Collaborative DESIGN

The result of a successful PFA is twofold: 

 

Our customer will have a good understanding of what is possible, and what the Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) data reflects. IE - Potential Solutions, Project Cost, Project Savings, Potential Utility Incentives, Ect.

In parallel, ABS will have a firm understanding of what specific measures our client would like to pursue further, after we have had the opportunity to advise on all potentially viable solutions. 

 

Our approach will always be educational in nature, sharing our professional expertise, while also being mindful in allowing you to take a directive role within the development process.

 

The next step in our process is to facilitate an Investment Grade Audit (IGA), and to conduct a collaborative Detailed Design (DD) process.

The end result of this exercise is to deliver a "construction ready" proposal package that you have been able to have a influential role in developing, and can have confidence in obtaining your best possible solution.

implement & sustain

Delivering on our commitments to our customers is our favorite part!! It may seem simplistic in nature, but the mantra of "do what you say, and say what you do" is something we take personal. We care about delivering on our promises through our actions at the highest caliber possible, making our construction process painless.

We handle every aspect of the project implementation from start to finish, providing our valued customers a construction experience that is second-to-none.

For our clients, this phase of our process is seamless, allowing our customer to participate at whatever level they see fit based on complexity of scope

Having a customer-centric mentality has set us apart over the years, and has produced many highly satisfied clients that we now count as partners and friends.

OUR TEAM

"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." 

--Andrew Carnegie

Allan Cook

President

As the president of Alco Building Solutions, Inc. (ABS) I would like to give you a little background on our company, sharing some of our values and our commitment to the community as well. ABS started in 1995 as ALCO ELECTRIC and became an "Electrical & General Construction" firm in 2004, incorporating that same year.

Safety, craftsmanship, integrity, technical knowledge and collaboration are values that we consider important within our business. We have been fortunate to positively impact many people and communities in our work. It's humbling to be contributing to those around us, doing something within an industry that we are so passionate about.

 

Since our inception, our firm has completed numerous projects in the fields of Electrical (commercial, industrial, institutional and large residential), General Construction, EV Charging Infrastructure, Facility Maintenance, and Energy Services. In putting our values to practice, I have served as a Chairperson for Rebuilding Together (2001-2006), Economic Development Commissioner (1/06/2004-12/31/2007) with the City of Duarte,CA, and I have served on the "Route 66 Parade" committee for over 10 years as well. I have also served as the President of the Duarte, CA Elks Lodge. We live out our values through our actions... It's that simple.
