Construction Management

Many Owners want a firm to manage both the design and construction of their projects. This process is commonly referred to as Construction Management. This delivery system allows for the construction firm to do value engineering in the design end of the project, which will keep a project in budget. This system also allows a construction firm to monitor what is being designed for the Owner, a check and balance system of aesthetics and cost.

Services in this delivery system:

  • Advice and consultation on all aspects of planning
  • Management of the design and construction phases
  • Value engineering and cost analysis
  • Establish schedule and construction phases
  • Preparation of Bid packages

 

Construction Management at Risk

This delivery method is similar to Construction Management with a main difference;  A construction firm now guarantees a construction cost and acts as the General Contractor. This process allows better lines of communication with the Owner and architectural team as well as better control of the overall project as opposed to a simply or normal general construction delivery method. Services included in this delivery method are the same as above but also include the following:

  • Estimating, including conceptual estimating
  • Implementation of contract controls
  • Development and management of quality control standards

Design/Build

This system is geared for an Owner who is looking for a single point of responsibility. In this approach, an Architect is selected to work directly for the design/build team. We then work directly for the Owner and direct the Architect to design to the owner’s specific needs. This allows our firm to mark sure the project is not over designed and stays within budget.

Benefits and services offered in this system:

  • Efficient and affordable designs
  • Control of schedules and costs
  • Single point of contracted responsibility
  • Coordination between the designers and constructors
  • A total team approach to a project

 

Competitive Sealed Proposals (CSPs)

This emerging delivery system (generally in the Governmental sector) allows the Owner to consider other factors along with competitive pricing in the selection of a builder. The Owner can utilize a ranking system with points awarded for construction cost, past experience, safety modifiers, similar projects, etc., in the selection process. Holappa General Contractinghas been ranked and selected on Governmental Projects as a top competitor with these and other factors considered.

Benefits and services offered in this system:

  • Governmental agencies not bound to “lowest” qualified or unqualified bidder
  • Agency has multiple factors to consider in assembling of construction team

This delivery system includes competitive bid, lump sum, cost plus a fee, cost plus a fee with a Guaranteed Maximum Price. Each method has its use in certain situations, but all share the common general contractor as doing construction only in the project. Holappa General Contracting has extensive experience in the following building types:

  • Commercial
  • Housing
  • Medical
  • Educational
  • Tilt–up Warehousing

 

Subcontracting

Holappa General Contracting is also willing to work as a Subcontractor for other General Contractors on large projects.

Our primary job as Owner’s Representative is to ensure that each member of the Owner’s team of specialists discharges its responsibilities in a manner that serves the Owner’s overall interest.
