Tendering is a legal process that carries with it owner obligations, even during the procurement period. Are you confident that your tendering process will minimize the risk associated with procuring a Contractor? We will coordinate, monitor and facilitate the tender call and provide expert advice on issues relating to contracting strategies. Our experience will ensure a fair contract and a reduction in unnecessary costs and risks during construction.

Your specifications and drawings are complete and ready to go to tender. Are there inconsistencies in the technical drawings or errors in the documents? Our construction-industry professionals review your drawings for potential conflicts and issues, resolving any problems and avoiding costly mistakes once construction begins.

Have you selected the initial aspects of your design with an appropriate understanding of the site and overall building or infrastructure construction project? Do you have clear bid documents that contractors and trades can easily understand? Our professionals review your design to ensure it is on the right track at the start of your project. And we clarify design documents and review constructability, enabling your contractors and trades to price accurately and avoid errors, delays and cost overruns during construction.

Diligent management of the design process is critical in ensuring compliance and controlling project scope and budget. Are you certain that your designs will result in maximum value and minimal delays while meeting building codes? We conduct in-depth design reviews, including program compliance monitoring, progress monitoring and constructability reviews, then provide recommendations for changes.

Your building is finished. People have moved in, and the operation is running full steam ahead. But the job continues.

Systems running as intended is the first step in managing and optimizing facility energy use. Are your building systems operating as designed? To ensure your critical systems are performing to the expectations of the manufacturer and your facility, we will work with operations staff to implement a protocol. The procedure will include training sessions for maintenance staff and management, warranty documentation, maintenance records and operating procedures.

A well-defined project management process improves communication and allocation of resources so that projects are successfully completed on time and on budget. Is your project management process yielding these results? Our process audits will examine which parts of your methodology are falling short or not being followed, then seek the root cause of the deviation. We will then recommend adjustments, provide training and tools and come back to conduct reviews to ensure they were implemented effectively. 

Do you have the experience to differentiate between warranty items and deficiencies? Do you have the time and resources to oversee and deal with urgent issues as they arise? We facilitate the entire warranty process, tend to issues as they arise, and return to the project site a year after completion to perform a warranty walk-through with you.

Can you be sure that your deficiency list is complete? Is your construction team completing deficiencies in a timely manner? We have the experience to lead and manage the deficiencies process to ensure that your list is completed on time.
