Installation


GCP has been proving nationwide installation of GFRC products since 2007. Hospitality, retail, mixed use atriums and high end residences, GCP has worked with some of the finest general contractors, fabricators and architects in the industry. Why GCP? Because we are trusted by fabricators and contractors on site. We just don't install, we learn about the product, the fastening method, the pigments, the substrates, we case study the installation to assure we are 100% prepared onsite to avoid delays and costly change orders. Being prepared, GCP techs work as an extension of the fabricator, a seamless transition from production to the field. Not every fabricator has personnel available and/or experienced enough  to mobilize across the country for two weeks to complete an install. Thats where GCP comes in.

Our work begins early in the process, usually before fabrication has started. Installation team leads arrive onsite and laser shoot dimensions and/or template the area and get the information back to the fabricator so they can produce shop drawings. We are then available to review and verify, as questions always come up. We take full responsibility for our VIF services and assure 100% accuracy.

Next step is pickup and delivery of the material. GCP can coordinate with the fabricator on when the material will be ready and how it should be packed, accommodating for the route, delivery equipment and site conditions. Whether we use our own truck or work with our trusted forwarder, we assure all the equipment meets site insurance and DOT requirements. We are highly experienced in "mid town" deliveries. Fabricator supplies a date, GCP does the rest to coordinate with the site superintendent to assure on time delivery while meeting all of the site requirements. Upon truck arrival we safely and efficiently get material to staging and minimize our impact on the delivery area.

The GCP team is extremely experienced and all members come from a GFRC fabrication background. They have built forms, cast material, and are highly experienced with finish processes. Our techs can manipulate material to accommodate site changes and complete rework to original factory conditions. Whether it's misaligned seams or a cut out to accommodate wiring or the install of hydraulic lifts and/or AV equipment, GCP has the tools and experience to confidently adjust and perform the services needed to prevent delays or additional costs.

In addition, GCP installers have experience in a host of other trades and understand the construction "site" environment. We have learned to play well with others. Professionalism is a key priority as we often need to coordinate with carpenters, electricians, flooring, framing and plumbing trades to complete our installs. Something else to note about our installers, they are paid extremely well. We do not hire day laborers. We love and respect our crew. We consider their work an artisan craft and we pay them accordingly. In return, our guys jump through hoops to accommodate client/site requirements. 2 A.M starts in Manhattan are not uncommon. Need to work through the weekend because the carpenters were late, just give us a heads up so we can arrange with our families accordingly. When you engage GCP on an install, you get us 100% and we will not let you down. OSHA certified, insured, bonded when you hire GCP you hire a team of craftsmen inspired to complete your project on time and within budget. We guarantee it!
