The construction management process begins with a thorough review of the current design. The trained architects on staff oversee the design process, document production and design implementation. Each of these professionals also has an extensive background in the construction industry, including on-site experience, which enables them to view each project holistically and act as a bridge between the owner’s design contractor and the potential general contractor or subcontractors. By applying lessons learned from previous projects, our staff can recognize problems in the preconstruction phase, which results in quicker construction time frames and cost savings.
During the construction phase, our staff uses their general contracting experience and expertise to manage owners’ subs and general contractors, protecting the ownerships’ interests and assets.
Our construction management services include:
- Preliminary estimating
- Design review and advisory services
- Scheduling and contract coordination
- Document preparation
- Bidder qualification
