Management of Programming and Design Phase

Management of the early stages of public and private construction projects is a primary business of the firm, not a sideline to supplement other kinds of work. We work with City and Town’s building committees, facilities personnel, the design team and contractor to understand the program requirements and tailor the request for services for designers to enable selection of the most appropriate design team for the client’s needs. We assist the owner in translation of the design terminology and documents to fit the clients understanding of how it works with their program goals and needs. We manage designer selection, review and advise on consultant contracts and monitor documents for constructability and program compliance.

Development and Monitoring of Budget and Schedules

We do this work every day in both the private and public sectors and can analyze building projects from many different points of view.  Development of the initial budget and schedule and monitoring them throughout the life of a project to assure successful completion is a key element of our management process.  Our true role as Project Manager is to ensure that as the owner, you understand the implications and tradeoffs of every decision that may impact the project quality, cost and completion. We then apply the systems needed to monitor and control the project to meet each goal and ensure the program’s overall success.  We develop total project budgets and overall project schedules to fit each client’s need.  We have experience in many building types including public and private schools, college and university facilities, medical, institutional and pharmaceutical buildings, commercial, retail and tenant fit-up construction, multi-unit residential, hotels and warehouse and distribution facilities.

Management of the Construction Phase

When a project reaches the bidding phase, we work with the owner and design team to assure that program requirements are maintained throughout the life of construction.  We manage the oversight of bidding, contract award and take an active role on-site to assure implementation of the design documents.  With vast knowledge of the construction industry, we anticipate the contractor’s activities and protect the owner’s requirements for quality, program, budget and schedule.

Construction Consulting

We provide clients with review and analysis of construction contracts either prior to or after execution.  We provide on-site management of the construction process for clients who have already moved into this phase of the construction process.
