Immediately upon selection as your Construction Manager, Bismark Construction will undertake an in-depth review of all existing schematic designs and advise the Owner and Architect of potential high-cost areas, constructability issues, alternate materials and methods to maintain schedule deadlines, and potential problems relating to availability of labor and/or materials needed in the proposed design.
In addition and concurrent with the design review, an itemized unit cost budget will be prepared for discussion, review and approval by the Architect and Owner. This itemized budget will be cross-checked with a parameter estimate prepared by Bismark based on recently constructed buildings of a similar type.
As the development of design documents progresses, Bismark will commence with the creation of a detailed estimate. Our project baseline estimate will become a tool to create the team’s schedule that will build the project from Pre-Construction through Construction to Owner occupancy.
