Construction Project Management
Build a Better Home for Less
How we build a Better, More Economical Home for our Clients
Over the last 25 years we have created and refined our own custom residential project management system for building custom homes and custom renovations. Our process has consistently been proven to save you money and give you a better-built home.
How We Do It
Our process eliminates the general contractor. GC's make a profit on everything related to your project, from the simplest piece of lumber to the most expensive plumbing fixture. By eliminating the GC, we eliminate unnecessary costs, thus freeing up your budget. All labour elements - framing, plumbing, mechanicals, electrical, HVAC, finishes - are taken to tender on your behalf to ensure the best possible trades at the best prices, and we review these in tandem with you to make the best choices. What's more, you are granted unparalleled freedom in shopping for finishes such as appliances, flooring, light and plumbing fixtures. These are quoted directly to you from the supplier of your choice, as opposed to a GC who directs you to a sole supplier and marks up all the costs.
Need a particular standard for green or healthy homes?
Our database can identify the best suppliers and trades. Want a particular construction method like timber framing or R2000? Again, we know who can do the job, and more importantly, who can't. Dealing with a challenging terrain? We know how to manage the most difficult sites, and know which trades to invite to tender. Our process takes care of everything, and ensures the best trades, materials, and warranties at the best possible price. Benefits of our great experience in construction management project.
How We Feed Ourselves
We charge a project management fee that is locked in at contract signing and ensures no surprises. And we provide the home materials package - frame, engineering, doors, windows, roofing, and interior trim - using only reputable suppliers with proven track records to ensure superior construction quality
We generally save our clients in the order of 15% to 25%, net of our fees by eliminating the General Contractor. And our process grants you more freedom in shopping for finishes and appliances, controlling your budget, and seeing where your hard earned money is going.
Why Doesn't Everyone Build this Way?
The way we build requires incredible attention to detail, tireless follow-up, and plenty of experience in all facets of planning, design and construction. There are very few qualified residential construction project managers, and even fewer qualified firms that specialize in residential construction. This is a very small, specialized field that can however offer enormous benefits to residential clients. It is also dwarfed by the conventional construction industry, and we are frankly too busy and smart to try to change that!
