Estimating/Budget Control

We focus on providing value and reducing the budget throughout the project. Factors include:

Prefabrication

During the design, estimation, preconstruction, or construction phases, our prefabrication methods identify opportunities to lower costs, build in value, and support your project schedule. Benefits include:

Overall cost reduction through managing effort and material

Flexibility: AGILE means that changes in design, scope, or schedule can be addressed  quickly and locally

Safety: More work is done in a controlled, organized, and ergonomic environment

The improved site and facility logistics: whether on a new site or in occupied space it means:

Scheduling

Electrical Contractors regularly drive the schedule, so working with the design and construction team on schedule milestones is critical. 

We plan the schedule during preconstruction. We review the schedule at every weekly meeting, during major design changes, and before all milestone meetings to stay on track.

As we move into Construction, we participate with the general contractor and our subcontractor partners in Pull Planning to ensure we all are in the right place at the right time.

The schedule drives the budget. Time is money – so we continuously improve efficiency in the way we execute our work. We coordinate with other trades, perform pull planning, and work with other subcontractors to meet the project goals.
