Contracting, Working with Our People
We recognize that it “takes a village” to successfully carry out a church construction project. This is why our group is capable of fulfilling every task of a construction build each step of the way.
Most projects take at least one to two years to complete. In the great scheme of things this is not a long period of time but when you meet on a at least weekly basis living through all that is good and bad that inevitably go on in a construction project, it is important that the church personnel have confidence in, feel comfortable with and enjoy the personnel their working with. It shouldn’t be an adversarial relationship with owner and architect on one side of the table and the contractor on the other side. Successful projects happen when it is a collaborative effort with everyone working towards the success of the project. It’s more than just bricks and sticks, it’s all about the relationships we develop and foster!
Pre-Construction – General Construction (Start to Finish)
It’s important that any church construction company is able to fulfill any and pre-construction and general construction needs. Dealing with contractors who understand the whole process makes for an easier build and more successful project.
Some of our pre-construction services include:
– Developing accurate construction estimates even with incomplete or concept plans.
– Task scheduling
– Construction scheduling
– Analyzing building means and methods
– Recognizing areas for value engineering
– Phase work evaluation.
Additionally, with these pre-construction services, customers are able to get a better idea of how the build process will be executed. Having a good handle on the build process before construction starts is necessary.
We’ve worked under many different construction methods. We’ve done projects with fixed price, cost plus fee with and without a guaranteed maximum cost.
Whatever build services you may need, our group is here to meet those needs. Any questions regarding our construction company? Please reach out and contact us, we’d love to help.
