Experience and Attention to Detail
Clients may hire NorthPoint as a full-service Construction Manager. In doing so, we’ll work with you from the conclusion of our first meeting to participate in the completion of the design phase, prepare preliminary budgets and construction schedules, review project scopes, procure project approvals and permits, work through the final bidding process implementing a three-bid system, management of a timely construction phase, and finally the project close out and building turnover. This time-proven process creates a strong partnership between owner, architect and contractor.
This method of project delivery allows us to provide firm pricing before final construction documents are 100% complete, while concurrently providing constructability and scheduling information. This approach enables us to lock in a “guaranteed maximum price” (GMP) for a construction project. Clients can use a GMP to plan for the expense of a project ahead of time, and yet still enjoy cost savings if the actual build comes in below the GMP.
Here are a few benefits of the Construction Management approach:
- The ability to communicate goals and concerns early in the planning phase
- Smarter, more encompassing cost control
- More accurate scheduling and speedier completion times
