APPROACH TO MANAGING PROJECTS
To insure that your project is a success, we will provide a specialized management team. Through regular design meetings, the project is further defined and refined. Eckman & Mitchell Construction realizes that cost control is critical during the early phase of design. By establishing accurate budgets early on, each aspect of a project can be designed to achieve maximum value.
Interaction is inherent to the very definition of the construction process. All team members rely on input from others to solve problems and create solutions. Exceptional design or construction rarely, if ever, occurs in isolation. Communication skills are paramount to the success of a project and evident in all the associated firms. The working relationship between team members developed over years of collaboration, has resulted in an economical, honest communication style. Critical elements of importance to each project are the design, budget, schedule, construction documents, site development and construction.
COST CONTROL AND BUDGET
Most successful projects are built within the confines of a firm budget, but even more crucial is providing the very best craftsmanship for an owner’s construction dollar.
With an eye toward cost, we will insist that each member of each team provide the highest possible quality within their role of the project team, for we know that ultimately quality improves functionality of the facility and ultimately reduces maintenance costs.
METHODOLOGY TO ENSURE BID ACCURACY
Site and Building The project manager will familiarize himself with the site and the building scope of services. Our team will review all bids for accuracy. Extremely low bidders are contacted and asked to review and verify. Excessively low bids will not be used. However, the owner will be forwarded all bid information.
Our project estimator assumes responsibility for covering all aspects of bids. All three parties will review before final price submitted. Eckman & Mitchell Construction has a proven understanding of the bidding process; we know how to bid projects and how to select the very best subcontractors for the job. Eckman & Mitchell Construction has developed long-term relationships with sub-contractors that provides access to a deep sub-contractor base which translates to the highest quality for each project.
