Our Construction Consulting Services
Owner's Representation / Project Management
We represent the owner, and act solely in your best interest. We will implement a Project Management Plan and Project Controls to assist you in successfully delivering your construction project on schedule and on budget.
As your Owner's Representative, we will work together to establish clear lines of communication, help you make informed decisions and confirm that project team members are working towards achieving your project goals and objectives while maximizing the value of your investment.
Over the last 25+ years we have developed detailed construction cost estimates on over $30 Billion worth of projects. This has allowed us to develop a robust catalog of historical construction costs on a wide variety of building types and sizes.
Our systematic approach to developing cost estimates allows us to develop detailed, reliable and accurate cost estimates. As your Construction Cost Estimator, we will use the latest project cost control techniques to establish a realistic budget and carefully monitor your budget as it relates to the project design as it progresses through each design phase.
A Cost Segregation study can accelerate depreciation on your building or tenant improvement, helping you increase cash flow, reduce taxable income and grow your business. Our experienced team has a thorough understanding of construction methods, materials and costs, ensuring we can maximize your benefits.
As your Cost Segregation consultant, we can provide a complimentary analysis to give you a realistic estimate of the tax refund amount you may be eligible for. Best of all, there is no obligation and no upfront cost - payment can be deferred until you receive the benefits.
From a project’s planning and design, bidding, construction and project close out, we can help you manage your municipal and developer-driven projects. As your advocates, we protect your interests so you can make informed decisions from the project start to ultimate completion.
