A preliminary study may get into further detail such as basic aesthetics or design goals, best structural and all other systems to use. Programming happens along the process and at different levels. We allocate size and resources based on anticipated current and future needs.
 
Project Plan Review
 
The production of an accurate and well-coordinated set of plans and specifications is very important to minimize change orders and optimize field administration. RCL will perform a constructability review as a cross-check of construction documents for accuracy, completeness, and systems coordination issues. This process occurs after construction documents are complete. During this review, we identify potential coordination issues, missed details, time delays, potential liability, and inter-contractor coordination items prior and after publishing bid documents. The design team then reviews and implements appropriate changes to the documents. Our interdisciplinary constructability review method is an intense cross-check of all construction documents. We review each building system independently and as a whole.

This process involves:

  • Reviewing plans and specifications to assess the ease or difficulty of constructing the proposed design with recommendations for practical changes.
  • Reviewing documents for any observed inconsistencies.
  • Making recommendations for the use of more cost-effective alternative materials or design details.
  • Making recommendations for specification changes when the proposed specifications are likely to limit competition or cause excessive delays in delivery.
  • Reviewing documents for completeness. Comprehensive and accurate documentation results in more responsive and complete bids.

Project Construction Audit/Why Audit Construction project?

  • Projects are Costly & subjects to Over Charges
  • Identified Opportunities for Cost Savings & Recovery
  • Provide Independent Verification of Payments
  • Delays Can Results in Lost Market Opportunity & Revenue

“An integral part of the audit process is to assess whether each stakeholder has met their responsibility and mitigated the risk that is inherent in a construction project.”
 
Project Management
 
Design phase services are identical, yet the construction phase services can be tailored to protect the owner’s interest while minimizing attendant fees. In general, there are three elements in executing a construction project – whichever method of project delivery you choose:

  • Contract administration
  • Construction coordination
  • Project controls

 
Construction management services include contract administration, construction coordination, and project controls, while the Owner’s Rep services solely involve project controls. The Owner’s Rep will supervise and scrutinize construction activities and report back to the Owner with project updates. This requires one person on the project site full or part time. A Construction Manager needs one or two other support staff to process all of the construction administration and coordination.
 
Owners use our Owner’s Rep service for several reasons.  A General Contractor can provide the contract administration such as processing paperwork and Contractor pay applications. In terms of construction coordination, the Contractor can coordinate site issues and contractors. Therefore, it is optimal to use an Owner’s Rep in the following circumstances:

  • You have decided on using the General Contractor or Multiple Prime Contractor method and you want a person on site to act as your “eyes and ears.”
  • The project will start and you want an experienced construction professional to manage the additions or renovations of your facility. This is often the case with Owners who have expertise in-house but staff resources are already maximized.
