Construction Management- Construction Cost Management is a fee-based service in which Midwest Construction Group acting as a Construction Manager (C.M) is responsible exclusively to the owner and acts in the owner’s interests at every stage of the project. The construction manager offers advice, uncolored by any conflicting interest, on matters such as:
Optimum use of available funds
Control of the scope of the work
Optimum use of design and construction firms’ skills and talents
Avoidance of delays, changes and disputes
Enhancing project design and construction quality
Optimum flexibility in contracting and procurement
Cash flow Management
Comprehensive management of every stage of the project, beginning with the original concept and project definition, yields the greatest possible benefit to owners from Construction Management. Midwest Construction Group can represent the owner by helping to select the design team as well as the construction team and man- age the design preventing scope creep, helping the owner stay within a pre-determined budget by performing Value Engineering, Cost/Benefit Analysis and Best Value Comparisons.
Design / Build
Design-build focuses on combining the design, permit, and construction schedules in order to streamline the traditional design -bid-build environment. This does not shorten the time it takes to complete the individual tasks of creating construction documents (working drawings and specifications), acquiring building and other permits, or actually constructing the building. Instead, we will strive to bring together design and construction professionals in a collaborative environment to complete these tasks in an overlapping like fashion i.e. construction has begun while the build- ing is still being designed.
If you already have developed a program of your needs and selected a site (often with a civil engineer). Your architect assembles a design team of consulting engineers and other experts to design the building and specify the building systems to meet those needs. Today con- tractors frequently participate in the de- sign team effort by providing pre-design services where they will help in providing more accurate estimation of budget and scheduling during design to improve the over all economy of the project. The owner, architect, and general contractor work closely together to meet deadlines and budget. The general con- tractor then works with subcontractors to ensure quality standards in addition to timeline and budget.
