Over many years and multiple successfully completed projects, we have developed a highly detailed approach to the construction management process. Our role is to guide the client through the journey that ultimately ends with a best value facility.
We begin the journey by providing accurate budgets and schedules. As part of our services we will assist the architect with constructability material use evaluations. This is done to provide the owner with information that allows them to make the most informed use of their construction dollar. It is at this stage of the construction management process that we will establish a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for the project.
Once the decision to build is made, we begin the bidding process. Our team will develop construction workscopes by completing a thorough review of the information contained in both the specifications and drawings. These workscopes “assign” each trade their responsibilities under their particular trade. This process ensures that each portion of work is covered and minimizes the risk of change orders.
We will work with the owner to assemble a list of qualified sub-contractors that will competitively bid the project. The subcontractor selection process is based on potential owner requirements, experience, workload, value, and safety record. Once the bids have been received, we will assemble a total project cost estimate to review with the owner.
With construction underway, our team will manage the submittal process, construction schedule, construction meetings, project budget, and payment applications. We use a cloud-based project management system that allows real time interaction between all parties involved in the project.
At the completion of the project we will assist with commissioning of building systems, assemble red-line drawings, provide the owner with operations & maintenance manuals, and issue warranty certificates.
By acting as a construction manager on the owner's behalf, we excel at navigating the complex details that are essential to a successful project.
