Construction Management

BSA Inc. Design & Construction

In the case whereby the Owner of a Luxury Home or Commercial project, chooses to hire a separate Architect and separate General Contractor, or one entity to provide both services, independent Construction Management services provided directly independently to the owner, will help to ensure a cost effective, timely and quality project. The below services can be provided remotely and/or on-site and at varying frequencies that relate to the project workload and Client requests.

The business structure for design and construction of a new project, whether it be a Custom Home or Commercial building, is typically contracted in one of two ways: the Owner hiring a separate Architect and separate General Contractor, or one entity that is licensed to provide both services,

But…

in either case, who does the Owner really have, as an independent fiduciary to them only and is a seasoned Resource, looking after their personal interests exclusively and confidentially?

As an example, BSA Inc. Design & Construction is currently retained as the Homeowner’s independent Architect and General Contractor Consultant, providing them with project optimization services (i.e. reduction in construction costs) for their new custom home project. The scope of work is a new ground up 4,500 sq. ft. home and detached Studio/Garage.

In one of our initial meetings and before a permit was pulled, just two insightful architecture/construction cost saving suggestions paid for our fee and saved the Owner’s over $15,000 in construction costs, that were slated to be spent (for more detailed information, please see Barry’s Blog: ‘Owners Advocate-A Resource For Savings).

This was accomplished in a collaborative manner, before plans were submitted to the building department and along with the clients architect, so drawings and specifications could be revised as needed, to optimize the cost effectiveness of upcoming construction contracts.
