Value R

 Stava_25thAnniversary_LogoValue is customer specific

Value requires understanding the customer, then adding:

  • Smart Design
  • Smart Use of Materials
  • Efficient Construction
  • Intelligent Process

Value is not the same as cost.  Value is the gap between cost and result.

The Stava team takes time to get to know our clients to add VALUE to each unique project. Creating value can range from designing the perfect office structure to increase productivity to finding creative solutions to decrease costs, or an array of strategies in between.  The point is, we know each client has unique needs and we tailor our approach to provide the best value possible.

  • With your Architect and Contractor on the same team, they can seamlessly construct your project from start to finish.  They can find creative solutions to save YOU time and money.

Value Engineering

  • Stava Building Corporation considers value engineering to not only be beneficial to our clients, but an essential part of the design and construction process. Simply put, value engineering is a five-step process that allows for cost-savings to be gained by minor changes to the scope of work. Allowing for a product suited specifically to the clients’ needs in a manner that is also financially efficient. Each of the five-steps to value engineering takes analysis, creative thinking, and consistent communication with the client to bring the desired results with more effective products.
    • Information Phase – Discussions between the client and architect to determine the goal for design and essential function of the facility.
    • Speculation Phase – This is the “brainstorming” phase. With the clients’ needs in mind the project manager and architect work hand-in-hand to identify areas that may allow for possible savings. Alternate products may be selected which offer economy and/or better performance.
    • Evaluation Phase – Once the areas of savings have been identified, the design and construction team present their value-engineering recommendations to the client in the form of a “value-engineering proposal.” Phase 1 and 2 are repeated until the desired result is reached for the client.
    • Development Phase – The design team updates the scope and architectural plans to represent the accepted changes from the value engineering proposal.
    • Presentation Phase – Once all changes have been made to the scope, specifications, and plans the design team and/or general contractor presents the updated proposal to the client.

Project Description

Administration Building

We gutted and removed previous build out to approximately 100-year old historic structure. We repaired and restored the original plaster reliefs and refinished to original appearance with updated modern technologies.

Family Life Center

We designed and constructed the new Family Life Center and Executive Offices that included large gathering rooms, a small intimate sitting area, commercial kitchens, offices and executive boardroom. Construction consisted of a two-story red iron structure with metal stud infill. Exterior was a hand troweled heavy texture to match existing structures, and we transferred original plaster designs from existing buildings

To see the effects see the Typography page for how text was formatted.

This title text was made red. 

This paragraph  has red text in it, as you can see here. The div shortcode allows for blocks of text to be changed.

Change any font to “Snickles Typeface”

This font was created to give a little personality to the footer of the website, but it might be a nice accent for paragraphs for seasonal greetings:  ”Happy Holidays”, Happy July 4!, and so forth…

This is also the same font in a different color!

Tutorial R

This Website is built on WordPress, a Content Management System designed to make managing your company’s website easy to do so.

The Basics

After you’ve logged in you will have extended information in the FOOTER of the website.  Typography shows all the available styles and this page, Tutorial, will get you situated with this custom installation.  Please refer to this page for all the basic information.  The following items are found through the dashboard area:

Pages

Pages are what you would expect to find:  All the page content is located here.  Getting used to how to edit pages will help out with the next sections as these items all are basically designed the same and have the same or similar layouts and terminology.

Creating and editing a page: Add New will create a new page.  A new page will not show up in the menu and will only be accessible with a link. The first step is to write a page title at the top.  Next, the permalink (or URL) will auto-populate a name, which is not relevant for this website because the website is HASH dependent. More about Hash marks in a minute. The main content area is yours to add or edit text and images. The Add Media button will reveal a library of images already included, or you can add more images of your own (click the button and view options).  Once you have included the content for your page you need to add 2 custom fields.  First, is bigPageTitle which is the text that will show up as the big page title text.  Second is nextPage the arrow link inline with the big page title (>): simply add the page you want that arrow to take the view to: no spaces, no capitals, no slashes and it needs to match that page permalink that is highlighted in yellow (or the last /location/).  To save, click Update.  In Page attributes, parent and template are not important with one exception.  The home page needs the template to be “Simple One Page”  or the site won’t work.  Lastly, the Featured Image is the background image associated with that page.  When adding a featured image for pages, the image should be no smaller than 1800 px wide but not larger than 400Kb to keep load time fast.

Hash Marks Explained

Hash marks dictate what is visible on this website.  When you click on ABOUT, the url adds /#about, or simply #about.  That hash mark is the last part of the permalink, which is most likely the page title, and which needs to entered in the nextPage custom field for an arrow to link to that specific page. That hash mark also makes the menu item selected (black background).  For example, the home page has the nextPage custom field as “home” and will add #home to the url, and the menu item for Home will aslo become highlighed.  More on the menu below.

Staff Profiles (About Page)

The About page has a shortcode that looks like this: [custom_posts type='staff_profile'] .  Don’t deleted or edit this link of code or the staff members section will not load.  To add staff members use the Staff Profiles section from the Dashboard menu.  Here you can add, edit or delete staff members. To edit click a name or Edit.   Like the Pages layout, add the name as title: the popup name in red, then add content, what shows up on the mouse click. Under Attributes the order determines which names show up first.  John Stava has order number 1 and will show up first.  If two staff profiles have the same order number, it then orders alphabetically.  The Featured Image is the staff photo…  make sure that the photos are edited to match the rest of the staff photos before adding.  Also, add only a color image, the grayscale effect is managed in the jquery code, which you don’t have to manage.

Portfolio Items  (Client Page)

Please be familiar with the Staff Profiles before reading more about Portfolio items as they are very similar, except there is no sort order number. These items will show up on the site in alphabetical order.  Add or edit any portfolio item.  Here you only have to add a name and the featured image, where the image is white on transparent PNG format.  If you want this item to be a Portfolio Case Study, simply write content in the main content area, place the cursor at the very first character and press the Add Media button, adding at least 2 image thumbnails through the Add Media console:  In the Media console, upload or click an image > on the right hand side LINK To The Media file (Important!) AND choose thumbnail 150×150 (also important!).  Everything else that shows up  on the site is automated.

WordPress Video Tutorial links

When in doubt and as part of new website manager training please refer to these video series: http://ecarbonated.com/knowledge-base/wordpress-training/  While not all the features of WordPress apply to this very custom version for Stava.com, this tutorial will help to navigate and lessen the learning curve.
