Project Management

We tailor our approach to meet the unique needs of your project. The resulting action plan ensures that project deadlines are met, costs are kept under control, and completed project adheres to expected quality standards.

Project Team

Our Project Team consists of the Project Executive, Project Manager/Estimator, Project Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent. Our Project Management Approach will be tailored specifically for your project. We will implement our action plan to meet the dates of completion set by the Owner and at the same time provide the necessary focus to control costs and adhere to established and expected quality standards.


Completion Dates

The completion dates for many projects require an extremely aggressive plan of action. We will begin our work by generating a preliminary Project Schedule for your project. The Project Schedule will be reviewed, refined, and updated as more information becomes available for the project. The Project Schedule is the primary tool used to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner with quality construction in every regard.


Awarding Contracts

After award of the CM/GC and A/E contracts, the immediate focus will be to get the approved design to a sufficient level to allow bidding of the project. Advertising for required trades and materials must start immediately along with prequalification of critical subcontractors. Items with long lead times are identified immediately and ordered as needed to meet the intended construction schedule.


The Project Budget

The Project Budget must be compiled and reviewed continuously during the bidding process to allow the value engineering and alternate pricing to take place without delaying the procurement process. We will work closely with the Design Team to review constructability issues and potential cost issues due to material selections. Additionally, we will provide alternate means and methods wherever possible to expedite the schedule and ultimately reduce costs.
