PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

By engaging our Advise & Consult professionals early to assist in developing the scope of a project, we can better define solutions and select appropriate design and construction professionals to achieve the goals at hand while saving cost. Our range of available services encompasses all aspects of a project, beginning with establishing the most appropriate construction delivery method for the client’s needs and type of project, assisting with initiation and planning, and continuing throughout to ensure seamless execution and successful completion.

Project Design Review Services

Our team provides experience-based design review and offers suggestions that will ensure stakeholders’ needs are met, improve constructability, reduce costs and ensure quality and longevity of the overall product. The design review process is crucial to preventing overspending, schedule impacts and potential rework.

Budget and Cost Control

Comprehensive budget development is a crucial factor in aligning our client’s project scope and schedule with the desired end result. We have the resources to develop and/or review budgets, forecast cost at completion and validate actual construction costs as work is put in place.

While we perform cost avoidance exercises during the development of a project to reduce future spending, we also continue to explore cost saving items and strategies throughout the life of a project. By listening to our clients and understanding their business, our team is able to recommend solutions to mitigate and manage unexpected costs, such as procurement delays, in the foreseeable future.
