PreConstruction is the most important stage of any project. We start by outlining the base program expectation and control budget with the client, and then hold constructability reviews in collaboration with the design team to analyze all aspects of the project. This deep PreConstruction process enables us to promise our clients that the cost of the end-product will be within 5% of the initial control budget presented for the PreConstruction phase.
We offer General Contracting and Construction Management services, mainly Design-Assist or Design-Build negotiated delivery, from concept to completion. We deliver most of our projects under a negotiated Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) or a Lump Sum contract, starting early on from the PreConstruction phase. With every project our approach is always the same—an aligned vision and productive process that achieves the highest quality at the most optimal price.
We directly purchase materials and self-perform non-structural work wherever possible, thereby ensuring an optimal price for clients and projects. We have a variety of both local and overseas suppliers that we have worked with for many years and have developed an ironclad delivery system. We also have our own Warehouse facilities that allow us to purchase construction materials very early on and safely store them until they are needed at the project site. This allows us to mitigate market risks and material availability concerns. Our Self-Performed work currently includes exterior envelope, high-end window and curtain wall systems, cabinets, furniture, hard surfaces and all unit finishes.
We have enormous empathy for the needs, budgets, concerns, and goals of our collaborators. We treat them as thoughtfully as our own so that individual success is guaranteed through our collective efforts. Our innovative model allows us to identify opportunities for savings and efficiencies within cost factors for trades, vendors, and suppliers. We seek process improvements in real time so we can deliver maximum impact throughout the entire value chain.
