Construction in an existing structure is a little like a multi-pitch challenge. You want a partner that can read the route with you. Time invested on the ground saves energy on the route and helps eliminate mistakes. No swapping hands and feet excessively, clipping in the wrong places, or missing holds and rests. Skilled climbers who can read the route climb more fluidly, efficiently, and safely.
Projects, especially ones in existing structures, require a team who is skilled at reading the route. We would like to be the team that explores innovative solutions with you to the challenges this project presents.
Attached in the link below is our first pass at your budget. This is not where we believe the final number will be. Given the nature of this project it is difficult to obtain significant subcontractor input on pricing with the state of the current market in Denver. As such, the attached proposal should be considered a budget number only in this stage of the process. We know from experience on similar projects that we can engage with you and your design team along with the right subcontractor partners to find opportunities to optimize this budget as necessary. There are value engineering ideas that we haven't had the opportunity to vet with you and our loyal subcontractor partners so they are not identified in the attached form. We think putting this project together will be a total kick in the pants!
Time invested on the ground is energy saved on the route. Not unlike the pre-planning required for a skilled climber we focus our efforts on understanding the challenges ahead of us and bringing in the right expertise to plan appropriately.
The goal: drive towards completion by maintaining the schedule and adhering to a budget. Investments aren't returning until space is filled and bringing in revenue. Our experience in development means we get it.
Maintaining a schedule in the complex environment of construction is important for a second reason that isn't as transparent: safety of the craftsmen on the job.
When a job is predictable people take fewer risks. Jobs get finished faster, with greater quality, and a higher level of safety. Many construction companies pride themselves on the fact that they can solve problems on the fly; however, this is actually a high risk strategy that puts the schedule and lives on the line in our industry.
We strive to identify challenges and opportunities before they arrive to maintain predictability. You see the job progressing and we see risk being minimized.
