In the beginning stage of the of the project, Collier will work with the Architect and Engineering team create a budget throughout the design process. When the plans are 30% complete, 60% complete, and 90% complete, Collier will make updates to benefit the customer by staying within the established budget. If there are any items that stand out and appear to cost more than anticipated, they can work with the architect and the owner to begin identifying alternative solutions to bring the costs back in line. Collier will work closely with the architect and owner during this entire process.
During construction, the project schedule is discussed daily between home office and field personnel. Weekly progress meetings between project managers, field superintendents, and subcontractors pinpoint potential scheduling problems before they affect schedule. Collier encourages biweekly progress meetings with owners, architects, subcontractors, and the Collier project team. Additionally, project managers and superintendents are communicating daily to keep updates, problem solving, and job production moving efficiently. Continual communication prevents unforeseen issues and project shortfalls before they occur. The schedule for this project is critical.
With every project, Collier uses the “Cradle to Grave” approach where project manager at Collier Construction takes an individual project from the very start to finish. Each project manager will estimate the project, complete contracts, procure materials, manage the schedule, control cost, closeout documents and provide the warranty service for the project for a year after the project is completed. This idea has many benefits, but the most important aspect of our model is customer service.
Our team’s experience and knowledge has our team well placed within the subcontractor community and we have built strong, reliable relationships with our local architects and engineers.
