Working With A Construction Manager

  1. Have you ever been involved with a major remodeling project?
  2. Are you able to clearly articulate what you really want?
  3. Do you know how to formulate a realistic remodeling budget?
  4. Do you understand both the design and construction processes?
  5. Do you know how to select a designer or builder that is right for your project?
  6. Do you have time or money to waste?

If you answered ‘No’ to any of these questions, then working with a construction manager may be right for you.

Engaging the services of a construction manager helps you avoid the all too common headaches, project delays and budget busting surprises that often go along with a remodeling project because he/she puts you in control of EVERY step of the remodeling process.

A construction manager can help you AVOID paying more later by working with you to get clear on your vision and establish a plan of action, assemble your right-fit project team, formulate a realistic budget, pre-screen and qualify construction companies, review bids and assist you with choosing the right contractor for your project and continuously monitor costs vs. budget.  His/Her involvement early in the process and ongoing management of it helps ensure the result will be a completed project just as YOU envisioned.

The decision to hire a construction manager will be based on whether or not you feel comfortable with someone else taking charge.  If you have the time and the inclination to take on a major remodeling project yourself AND feel you can successfully manage your project from conception to completion, working with a construction manager may not be right for you. On the other hand, if you do not feel you can successfully get a project done right, on time AND on budget, contact a construction manager to see what he/she can do for you.  After all, you don’t want your remodeling project to turn into a money pit.
