BREAK IT DOWN
In order to identify problems before they arise, and costs before they get out control. The planning is where we get our hands dirty.
In addition to just the raw costs, our team generates a conceptual construction schedule and evaluates the constructability of a project. The schedule not only provides the owner with a realistic construction schedule, but also allows the budget to consider additional costs associated with weather delays or identifying sequencing constraints when the project is built back up.
BUILD IT UP
Design, Manage Risk,
and Project Delivery
This is where the proper planning pays off. We review every detail and maintain an open dialogue with our clients so they can make informed decisions throughout the project.
Our Bottom-Up Approach
No left turns is our mantra. It is our job to mitigate every variable that can push a project off course. Waiting until it is too late to react to design, budget, scheduling, and constructability issues is the problem on most jobs. Our proactive approach to planning, budgeting and procurement from the “bottom up” is the difference maker.
Risk Management Over Value Engineering
Value engineering can save an Owner money, but not necessarily value. Our Risk Management approach for delivering a project allows for buying value from the start of design (lower costs upfront) and thereby eliminates having to work backwards late in the game to save money.
