A&E approaches Construction Management with the same team philosophy and leadership that permeates the firm. We begin our Construction Management projects with early meetings with the Owner to develop a complete understanding of the project’s objectives and requirements, while finding the optimum balance between quality, cost and schedule. We then form a Project Leadership Team consisting of the Owner, Architect/Engineer and A&E. As the project moves forward, A&E provides comprehensive management and coordination of all project activities. This includes managing schedule milestones and key activities for the Architect/Engineers selected and contracted to the Owner.
In addition to the Project Leadership Team, the construction process also includes a Project Team consisting of design and engineering professionals, consultants, contractors and vendors. An individual member of the Project Team is generally responsible only for their area of discipline and often does not consider the project in its entirety. As Construction Manager A&E recognizes how each team member’s actions affect the entire project and the Owner’s objectives. It is this awareness that differentiates A&E from other firms.
As decisions are considered, A&E analyzes and presents to the Project Leadership Team to determine how changes or actions in one part of the project might influence other individual parts of the project, and the project overall. Our focus as Construction Manager is to provide the Owner with the highest quality project at the most reasonable cost, while completing the project on time.
