Benefits of hiring our Construction Management Service
Our Construction Management methodology will safeguard your interests and surely keep an close eye on your project which would lead to everything providing a “reasonable work development timeline”!
If we had to sum up the main benefits that our service Construction Management can offer, we would underline the following ones:
Participation and transparency
Whether you need us to be a part of your decision-making team or provide consulting services independently, we can work with you based on your specific needs. Our experience in lab design and technical facility construction make us qualified enough to help you in every step of the way, above all, supervising all the contracting companies. Our job is to focus on what must be built and on whom we work for.
SAVINGS AND SUSTAINABILITY
We do not charge overhead costs and industrial profit as any other general contractor to the client, we just make the work development sustainable by managing the budget and execution timeline properly. We consequently get paid by our knowledge and hands-on experience.
TECHNICAL ADVICE AND QUALITY CONTROL
When you choose to go with AD5 team, you’re putting a knowledgeable professional on your side with a check and balance system to make sure that all change orders are reasonable.
CONTROL AND SAFETY RISK
When you dive into a construction project without a construction manager, you’re relying on the word of the general contractor and because money is going to be a big factor in your construction project, there’s a possibility that your relationship with the general contractor can become contentious. When hiring our service, we are the ones to manage the hiring process and to follow up the client payments to suppliers and different contracting companies in a search for legal and tax protection.
