Design and Construction Document Review / A review of the project plans and specifications in the design and engineering stages can provide a broader range of options consistent with design goals, eliminating additional time and costs in the construction field, as well as in the permit process.

Cost Analysis / Quantifying the required material and labor per the construction documents in comparison to the subcontractor bids, will provide you with validation of costs and a more complete estimate, which further assists in  eliminating excessive bids and unqualified subcontractors, saving time and money. A complete estimate should include all material and labor, budgets for contingencies and undetermined materials, consultant’s fees, city fees, insurance, overhead and profit.

Scheduling Coordinating the construction timeline of the project with your expectations provides a critical outline of responsibilities for contractors, consultants and owners that are helpful to meet the goals for time and budget in a cohesive process for your family.  Some of the factors that contribute to the project schedule are: owners goals’, site specific challenges, owners’ design decisions timeline, consultants’ schedules, project complexity, permit process, weather, and sub contractor’s availability.

Value Engineering / Getting the most out of your design and budget begins with looking at construction costs of design elements to analyze the value they are creating for both use and aesthetics compared to their related costs.
