Perspective with Change

"In boiling water hard carrot turns soft... soft egg turns hard... but the coffee bean, it changes the water."Sports figure interviewed on ESPN.  This fits with my previous statements about asking the questions the Owner has not thought of yet. While we think of dirt, sticks and bricks our clients are trying to increase capacity or bring a new product to market.

Design and Engineering

I have to ask the questions my Owners have not thought of yet. They know their business better than I ever will. But most have only built homes or one commercial building. It's all about strengths and weaknesses. I am there as their subject matter expert I embellish their corporate skill sets for the period of time it takes to Design Engineer, permit and build.

Due Diligence

With exceptions to every rule... pricing of conceptual building plans for Owners is a pretty accurate science. The challenge is in pricing the cost of developing sites. Storm water, retention ponds, electrical and water service including fire lines gets complicated. This is where our services in analyzing sites for Owners is critical in purchasing property or in the earliest days of project development.

Design Phases and Budget

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.

Budgeting through Design Process

Many Owners who hire their Design team are void of any Budget Management through the design process. I can Budget each Owners project through our historical data base... based on a written description of the project. From there I can provide a written scope of work that becomes the benchmark going forward to incrementally update the budget at every stage of Design. All the while giving the Owner/Client the ability to control their project financially... eliminating surprise factor after Design is completed.

Construction Costs

Design Drives Costs... Owners Decisions drive Design. When I ask an Owner the questions they have not thought of yet we can prioritize their needs and wants. With structures representing 35-40% of construction cost and operating systems another 35%, the balance is in the finishes. With those priorities in  mind we can decide where money needs to be allocated and savings accrued so I can align their priorities with their budget.
