Initial Consultation & Pricing
Each project begins with an initial consultation. We will listen to the Homeowners’ needs and objectives to help determine the logical next steps. The initial consultation is also an opportunity for the Owner and Design Team to learn about our process and approach. Depending on where you are in the design process, we may be able to build a comprehensive project budget with input from our subcontractors and vendors.
We offer pre-construction service as an option to our clients. We will work side-by-side with the Owner and Design Team while the design is being developed. During this phase, we provide guidance on project feasibility, cost assessment, value engineering and perform exploratory demolition, as necessary. Pre-construction service can be invaluable as it would enable the Owner to align the design with their budget parameters.
Our construction services include ongoing management of the project schedule, addressing questions between the Field Team and Design Team and all construction coordination. We collaborate with all key parties and leverage technology by using a cloud-based construction project management software. Throughout the course of construction, we meet regularly on site to address project-related topics. Routine meetings will assist in timely decisions and a reduction in construction issues. Our open communication lines, continual supervision, and experienced team members allow us to run projects smoothly from start to finish.
