We analyze and complete designs with a keen eye on cost, constructability, availability of materials, etc. One of our most significant contributions during the pre-construction phase is our detailed drawings and specifications prior to subcontractor bidding.
We begin to confirm the estimated project cost immediately after selection using the most up- to-date estimating systems available in the industry. We identify to yield the most effective cost savings, while retaining programmatic and design intent.
We use Microsoft Project as our primary scheduling software, which is used to illustrate project manpower, equipment resources, and cash flow forecasts.
Our team reviews the plans, checking for potential construction issues and evaluating alternatives, and develops a construction plan.
The preliminary budget functions as a cost model and, along with the schedule, help to focus and monitor project decisions. As plans are completed and cost decisions made, we compile the information and incorporate it into the budget.
Our quality assurance manager, project manager, and superintendent are fully responsible for the coordination and review of the project documents and site conditions to determine constructability.
