Our Team is Ready to Work with You!
Our objective is to provide quality developments and construction using the best available materials and products along with the support of an efficient, professional and productive team in order to deliver total satisfaction.
Prime Development Limited was incorporated in January 9th, 2001 with the intention of carrying out the residential and commercial developments,
larger negotiated housing contracts, and commercial tenders/ negotiations as well as to take over the construction works from Telret Construction Limited (TCL),
an associate company in operation since 1998, which in its own right complete many projects over the years. Prime has enjoyed membership with the
Incorporated Masterbuilders Association of Jamaica since 2001.
Since its incorporation, we have undertaken and completed numerous projects across Jamaica where we have enjoyed working with many architects both domestic and foreign, quantity surveyors and a variety of clients. We are always willing to offer our clients and fellow professionals our expertise and advice on the job, and are always striving to offer the best customer service at all times. With the right project team we have maintained a track record of completing projects on- time, or ahead of schedule.
We at Prime strive to be more than just contractors. Project Management is an integral part of the service we provide allowing us to work closely with clients and other project managers in an integrated way to achieve a common goal: or to act as full project managers ourselves, offering the client a turnkey package of project management and construction.
We are currently geared towards putting together total developments where we coordinate some or all of the following aspects of a project: feasibility studies, land acquisition, land surveying services, architectural and engineering designs, quantity surveying services, sales and construction. By performing these functions ourselves, it allows us to partner with landowners and/or investors who are desirous of partaking in housing or commercial developments.
We will continue to tender and negotiate for larger commercial and residential projects, in particular, hotel developments, housing developments and office buildings where the demand for quality construction is high and the need for contractors that complete on time (or ahead of time) is essential.
Our construction and development team has gained a wide variety of experience in several types of construction methods including: standard block and steel, steel frame buildings, multi-level buildings, and pre-cast concrete buildings. Whichever method of construction we are working with our philosophy is to demand accuracy and precision from the outset during the "rough" work so that when we reach the finishes, a quality product is assured. To that end, our trained and qualified technical staff is experienced in following the blueprints and the associated specifications.
We achieve accuracy through a process of continuous quality control, by selecting quality tradesmen and instilling a philosophy of pride in their quality of work whilst promoting a concept of "Accuracy - all the time". We continuously monitor building levels and adherence to drawings using state of the art laser levels and surveying equipment. When the need arises we have a chartered surveyor on call for assisting in technical setting out, and other critical stages of construction.
We are fully aware that time is of the essence on ALL projects. Mr. Richard Todd (Special Projects Director) has maintained a reputation of completing jobs on or ahead of schedule during his 35 years in construction and development career and Prime Development is committed to continuing this impressive record through the use of a qualified management team, the latest project management tools, and by having the backing of years of experience and construction "know how".
Prime Development recognizes that a construction company is only as good as its key staff. For this reason, we pay special attention in putting together a unique team of dedicated staff, specially selected based on the nature of the job at hand and the specialized skills required.
We believe that Total Quality Management (TQM) is a philosophy that we can adopt in the construction industry. By eliminating mistakes before they happen, we increase our efficiency, reduce project costs, and reduce the construction time.
TQM is instilled in our staff from the top down by utilizing on-the-job training and reinforced by involving all members of the team to continuously insist on accuracy and quality on all projects that we are involved with.
We are developing an in-house TQM handbook, which specifically highlights areas where accuracy and quality control are particularly important. This handbook will be made available to all our supervisors and technical support staff.
