Pre-construction is undoubtedly the most important phase of any project. Proper design and planning will allow the project schedule to be streamlined, reduce the risk of change orders and result in a budget-friendly project. Having your construction manager involved in the preconstruction process will help you get the best results in terms of quality, pricing and timeline.
During this design phase, it’s important to have a qualified estimator work with the design and construction team. This will ensure that the budget is considered from conception through to the finalization of the construction documents.
We are happy to serve as both pre-construction consultants and estimators. Let us help you with your next project — from pre-construction through completion — and we’ll ensure you get the results you are looking for.
Construction Management is a professional service that uses specialized project management techniques to oversee the planning, design and construction of a project, from beginning to end.
When we take on a construction management project at Dupuis Construction, we supervise the project schedule, monitor costs and ensure that the highest quality standards are met. Our intricate knowledge of building practices makes us uniquely qualified to manage your project more efficiently and affordably.
Managing Schedule, Budget and Quality Assurance
Failing to adhere to a planned project schedule can have an adverse effect on both cost and quality. Only trained and experienced managers know how to schedule subcontractors properly to ensure that neither cost nor quality are compromised for the sake of the schedule. We excel at maintaining proper execution of all three, using the Lean Construction approach.
The Lean Construction Method
Dupuis Construction implements the Lean Construction methodology on every project. Essentially, this is a method of production aimed at minimizing costs, materials, time and effort. Dupuis Construction has years of experience implementing Lean Construction; coupled with our decades of trade experience, this allows us to execute the method to its full potential.
The Design-Build Method
This is another form of project delivery where we, the construction manager, partner with an experienced design firm. We then work together to ensure the client’s needs and goals are met, collaborating at weekly meetings to streamline the project. The result is a more practical and executable design, along with more efficient and affordable construction.
When both the design and construction teams are contractually obligated to meet the goals of the client, all phases of construction run smoother, from planning to completion. With this method, we are able to design and build the most functional, affordable and beautiful building possible for the client.
