Construction Management

Services - Construction Management

Start with the end in mind. Project success begins with a thorough understanding of capital costs, a fully integrated schedule, a site safety plan, detailed risk analysis, a procurement strategy, and a well-defined permitting approach.

As the single point of project leadership and accountability for your entire project lifecycle through our total project delivery capability, we manage all procurement; permitting; coordination; safety; cost; and schedule requirements. By assuming the risk and responsibility, we support your needs from project conception and design through construction, commissioning, and closeout. We can help you maintain continuous operations, control costs, reduce waste, and streamline delivery. We tailor our approach to your specific needs, whether design-build, lean construction, or our EPCM approach which is a ‘turnkey’ service from concept all the way through construction and commissioning.

Working closely with architects, engineers, and your stakeholders during the early design stages, we provide a clear picture of your budget, schedule and phasing; identify any design considerations or workflow impacts; and review pros/cons to allow the project to work within the business case. As the project develops, we trend the estimated costs, anticipate and solve schedule risks, and recommend a contingency to deal with the unknowns that is weighed to balance out the risk of specific portions of the work.

Creating a master schedule that embraces design, permitting, procurement, long lead fabrication, construction activity, and start up is paramount to navigating owner milestones and constraints, including shutdowns and operational constraints. We draft these at the kickoff meeting, defining key milestones and objectives that are agreed to by the project stakeholders. As the project gains definition, we manage tasks accordingly to minimize any downtime, if applicable, and manage risk. Our team is well-versed in MS Project, Primavera P6, Proplanner, and other industry-leading software.

We use Building Information Modeling (BIM) sessions to resolve conflicts virtually before construction commences to enable field work to proceed quickly, safely, and cost-effectively. We review specifications and installed materials for quality and workmanship and quickly address any issues. Our quality process includes understanding the approved materials, how they are stored and handled, best practices for installation, coordination with long-term maintenance requirements, and systems testing to ensure a smooth commissioning process.

From substantial completion until all punch list items have been addressed, we provide owner turnover 

packages and verify that the subcontractors complete all remaining items and submit final invoices. We set up a programmatic approach at each project’s onset to spur efficiency and expediency. From detailed schedules and checklists to management tools such as logs for incomplete items, commissioning records, as-built drawing protocols, and punch list procedures, our strategic closeout plan ensures a smooth turnover of the building, equipment, and documentation with financial closure to the project contracts.
