I create the conceptual budget based on the written scope of work. Fixed systems such as  Walls, foundations, roof, windows get designed early on and need to be priced in the conceptual design phase. the operating HVAC, electrical systems get designed next and need to be priced during the Design Development Phase. With nearly 80% of the cost of a project designed into a project during these two phases this is where we get it right based on the budget. If something is out of balance this is where we fix it.

Being an advocate for our clients is a role I enjoy and work to excel in. There is no excuse in not being a relentless “bird dog” - a single point advocate for the client when the expectations are clear.


Today’s bureaucratic environment is challenging in getting projects approved and permitted. Focusing on the end result ensures that everything within the bureaucracy to permitting processes stays on-track, so the projects can also stay on track.


From the start of the design, through to the engineering, and also into the permitting side, we focus on making sure the job is done right and on-time. That’s why at AJC, up to 98% of our jobs finish on time, and many even finish before schedule.


My 28 years of experience has taught me that there is no replacing a sense of urgency in keeping the entire team focused on the client’s expectations of quality, budget and schedules. We get it done, and done right.
