Our 9 Step Process

1. Initial Client Meeting

This meeting can involve everything from reviewing preliminary concepts, a preliminary space plan or full construction documents

2. Collaboration

Depending on the complexity of the project, we can help optimize your budget and assist the architect in developing a constructible set of design documents. When collaborating, you can choose … 

  1. Design/Assist/Build Strategy

  2. Design/Build Strategy

  3. Bid/Build Startegy

3. Preliminary Budget

Based on the project parameters that have been defined in the client meeting and early-stage collaboration. This gives you early insight into what it will cost without spending money on a full set of design documents. If you’re satisfied with the budget, the architect is given the approval to proceed with a set of design documents to secure building permits.

4. Final Proposal

Simultaneously while the permitting agency reviews the documents for permit compliance. This phase allows us to obtain even more accurate pricing because we have a more complete set of design documents to work from.

5. Schedule

After contracts are signed, we provide a written bar chart schedule and commit to finishing date. If you request changes during the job that affect the schedule, the completion date can be extended. We also explain all billing and change order processes to prevent unnecessary delays.

6. Sign & Commit to Finish 

After contracts are signed, we provide a written bar chart schedule and commit to the finishing date. If you request changes during the job that affect the schedule, the completion date can be extended. We also explain all billing and change order processes to prevent unnecessary delays.

7. Resouces Assigned

An on-site manager, is assigned to your project. His/Her responsibility is to manage the foreman of the on-site tradesmen and ensure their compliance with our schedule and job specifications. At this time, we also assign a project manager who oversees the monthly pay applications, monitors and updates bar chart schedules, and reports to the client of to ensure we’re performing on budget, ahead of schedule and with high-quality installations.

8. Operational

During the project operations phase, we provide you with hands-on leadership and constant communication. If you desire changes or logistical problems arise, we’re there to facilitate solutions both quickly and effectively.

9. Project Closeout

During project closeout, we perform a number of important activities including final cleanup, inspections and perform our own punch list prior to the final walk-through with you, the owner. Our goal is to instill you with a sense of satisfaction and closure so you can move forward with other important business matters.
