Throughout our years in the construction industry, we have learned that the most successful projects come from collaboration between the client, the architect and the contractor. Our experience gives us the knowledge to find, qualify, and supervise the finest local craftsmen and best quality materials on behalf of the client, enabling us to build each project to the standards required by very discriminating clients, architects and designers
A collaborative process, with good communication between client, architect and contractor, is the key to achieving our highest goal of client satisfaction. The pre-construction process begins with a preliminary estimate that provides the client with a first look at construction costs and challenges. The next phase involves a thorough discussion of budget and design considerations, the development of the project schedule, evaluation of methods and materials, and a preliminary analysis of details and finish choices. The process also allows us to provide alternatives and cost saving recommendations to the client, to anticipate and solve problems before they happen and to keep the job on track, on time and on budget.
