SOUND PRACTICES OFFER REALISTIC BUDGETS and SCHEDULES.
Our Estimators, Project Managers and Field Superintendents recognize that on-time, within budget completion is one of the most important goals of any construction project. We pride ourselves on successfully controlling our projects by first developing a plan to fit the Owner’s needs and then formalizing the plan into a realistic project budget and construction schedule.
The Project Management Control System we establish for each project provides a comprehensive means of structuring all aspects of that project: cost estimating, scheduling, expediting, documentation and cost control. This System has the flexibility to adjust to any size project, and any Owner’s specific reporting needs. A few key aspects of the System include the following:
- Our Estimators use the web-based GradeBeam network to initiate and manage bid invitations to trade subcontractors and material suppliers and then to distribute drawings, specifications, bulletins, addenda, requests for information and responses. The GradeBeam network leverages the newest information and communication technologies to provide a secure, online site for the massive information exchange necessary in the preconstruction phase of the project.
- Our Project Managers use Primavera Contract Management to create and track written communications regarding the project. Project scheduling and graphics are created and presented using Primavera SureTrak Project Manager.
- Our Accounting Department uses AMSI Construction Management StarBuilder to track and control job cost. Project reports such as summaries of subcontractor and supplier billings and payments are generated using real-time financial data.
