At the beginning of any construction project, the different parties involved want different things. The architect wants to transform the owner? vision into a design; the contractor wants to build it; and, the owner wants a finished product of high quality.
Neighborgall believes that the construction management team approach is a logical and cost-effective method. Based on our years of experience in the construction industry, increased complexity of today? projects, and demands for shorter construction time frames, The Neighborgall Construction Company has expanded its expertise to include construction management.
We can act in both advisory and technical roles early in the design process, providing advice on the time and cost consequences of design and construction decisions, scheduling, and cost control; coordinating contract negotiations and awards; making timely purchases of critical materials and equipment; and coordinating construction activities.
Through a team approach, we work within the client? parameters on the management and administration of total design and construction, provide assistance on cost estimates, construction methods, and construction management to give surety to the constructability of the project. We believe this team concept in today? market is an efficient and effective way of providing the client with the maximum use of construction dollars.
Using the construction management paradigm, we usually get involved shortly after the owner hires an architect while there is still time to influence the design and collaborate with the architect. We?e found this is particularly significant when the client is adding to an existing facility. Using construction management, we are able to assure the client the least amount of disruption during the construction process.
Because of our long history in the area we serve, we have a thorough knowledge of local resources including subcontractors, materials, and manpower. That? important when it comes to keeping construction costs within budget and keeping the all-important construction timetable.
