Services Provided

 

PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

Assistance in Choosing the Design Team

By asking insightful questions and assisting in the selection process, we recognize the strengths and weaknesses of design consultants and effectively work with them towards designing a successful, on-budget project.

Site Assessment

We will provide entitlement information and conceptual site plans to help the owner make an informed decision when buying raw land.

Ongoing Review of Design and Construction Processes

As the design team provides preliminary drawings, realistic estimates will be made available for financing to establish a preliminary budget.

If the preliminary numbers do not pencil, our team will value-engineer the project until it does – early in the design process while design fees are still available.

We continue to monitor design drawings for constructability issues that can mitigate expensive change orders.

Contractor Pre-Qualification and Budget Establishment

We will pre-qualify contractors and obtain proposals from all trades to establish a final budget, conduct pre-bid job walks, recommend award of contracts and issue construction documents.

Obtain Certificates of Insurance Prior to Start of Construction

CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

Assistance in Choosing the Design Team

Scheduling Control

A Critical Path Methodology (CPM) Schedule will be used to control and maintain the construction schedule and document any schedule delays.

Progress Meetings

Regular project progress meetings will be scheduled with contractors, architects and the owner to communicate objectives and maintain a team approach to the building process.

Review of Payment Requests

Your project manager will review pay requests for accuracy on a percentage of completion basis and monitor contractors, vendors and ensure payments are applied properly throughout the course of the project.

Management of Change Orders

We will review and approve orders. While we work to keep the need for change orders from occurring, when they do occur, our firm does not add any mark-up. It's our way of assuring you that we are on your side and no one else's. Of course, if the scope of the project changes, additional charges would apply.
