When you initially contact us, we talk with you in depth to get a clear idea of the scope of work, as well as your vision and expectations for your project. If possible, we appreciate if you can send us pictures. From this information, we can give you an estimate over the phone. If you feel we are a fit for your project, we will schedule a time to visit and confirm our pricing. From there, you may wish to proceed and schedule your work!
In the pre-construction phase, we work with you to develop an operational agreement to provide a clear understanding of all the activities involved in the project. Together with you, we determine your requirements for the project and develop the plans accordingly. We also compile budgets at this early phase to insure that the project stays within its overall target budget. And we do all the work of bidding out the project with subcontractors and suppliers, as well as guiding the construction documents through the permit process. All this adds up to less headaches for you and more control over your project.
During construction, we deal with all the subcontractors for you: We track all the insurance and payments, we provide on-site management through our project managers, and we monitor the schedule to keep all project activities on target. This provides for centralized accountability, yet includes open communication between all parties. Weekly construction coordination meetings with subcontractors allow for resolution of issues as they arise.
Our company carries on cost management efforts during the entire project, and as construction approaches project closeout, we review all inspection reports and verify that the subcontractors have completed their duties before sign-off. We then compile all the closing documentation to supply you with all the necessary warranties, manuals, and as-built plans.
