We believe in a proactive approach to construction administration, and try to anticipate problems so adjustments can be made before a crisis evolves. We insist on the contractor preparing a materials list and submittal schedule to ensure that materials are ordered in time to avoid delays. Budget management is central to a project's success. Poor cost estimating will jeopardize critical schedules or may involve compromising functionality and aesthetics if last minute cost cutting becomes necessary. We recognize the importance of accurate cost estimating from the earliest phases, when the flexibility to react is the greatest.
