Construction Management



We consult with you to accurately define overall development objectives.  Provide preliminary pricing for initial concept and assist in financial analysis and pro forma establishment.  Recommend a program for selection of the architect and engineers.


We work with you on creating a design schedule along with formulation of building concept, project budget, and preliminary construction schedule.

We supply analyses of construction market conditions.  Recommend building materials, methods and systems. (See Economic Construction Studies) This early involvement solves many of the constructability issues before plans are issue to bidders.

We prepare a Conceptual Cost Estimate based on preliminary schematic drawings.  A detailed estimate will be provided to you. This advanced knowledge of cost is extremely meaningful to all aspects of your design & budget.

We continuously offer time and cost analyses of the overall construction design (value engineering).  As a result early "value engineering", cost saving alternates for various design components including structural, architectural, exterior facade, interior finish, mechanical and electrical systems are defined early on in the project. This accelerates your project more quickly than traditional methods.

We coordinate all efforts relative to City Engineering municipal authorities.

We secure boundary and topographical surveys, tree survey, phase I environmental, landscape, preliminary plat and geotechnical engineering studies, as you require.

Design Development Phase

We expedite and coordinate professional engineering services for soils investigation and borings as well as site concrete, steel, roofing and other testing requirements. We will assist you on the final selection of MEP, and Structual Engineers.

We recognize that while your development costs can sometimes be considerable; it is the performance of your design purchases over their life cycle that has the greatest effect on your operating cost. The performance of products and systems over time is a major factor in your decision for value-based purchasing.

Construction Documents

  • Possible gaps in the constructablity of design details.
