Project Concept & Feasibility
Conducting a thorough assessment of needs and clearly defining your project is the crucial first step. During this phase, we guide you in answering the broader questions of program configurations. As part of the project concept and feasibility phase, we help manage the design based on our extensive portfolio of prior projects, as well as conceptual budget studies based on historical data and current construction market trend data. This process allows us to accurately bid and award contracts later in the construction phase.
During the design process, enthusiasm and good intentions can unintentionally result in scope creep. At CPM, we fixate on the defined objectives, constantly monitoring the design development and steering it to assure that needs are met, the design schedule is maintained, and design creep is avoided. We pinpoint potentially problematic design features and address their possible effect on the overall program. Our focus ensures your peace of mind.
During construction, many things happen simultaneously, and the successful completion of one event often determines the success of the next. We plan thoroughly and forecast accurately to minimize surprises. We monitor progress in material procurement and field production to stay abreast of and head off potential problems. We focus on the big picture without losing sight of the details. Our focused attention to processes assures adherence to quality, schedule, and value standards established for the program.
Our focus on serving you doesn’t end when construction is complete. We continue to manage the process of move-in to ensure that your operations are up and running as efficiently as possible in the new facility. We monitor the building completion and punch-out, provide move-in assistance, and facilitate user orientation including maintenance requirements. Then we tie up all the loose ends with a final update to the project record document and turn it over to you.
