ECR’s Construction Management team is available to assist in a myriad of ways. Our core values of integrity, honesty, and accountability extend to all aspects of the project from pre-construction to final inspections and we enlist only those contractors who embody the same set of core values. At the onset, we will meet with the owner to develop a complete understanding of the project objectives and requirements. We will then create a strategic plan that will allow us to achieve the optimum balance between quality, cost, and schedule.
From pre-construction services to final inspections, we welcome the opportunity to exceed your expectations. We believe communication is a key component to your project’s success and will work closely not only with the owner but with the project architect, engineers, consultants, contractors, subcontractors and vendors to ensure comprehensive management and coordination of all project activities. Our team offers extensive experience scheduling contractors, minimizing delays, preventing and solving problems. We manage all stages and phases of remodel construction and offer practical field experience to assist in making decisions concerning methods and materials on the job site. We can provide a complete range of pre-construction services, including planning, budgeting, value engineering, and scheduling. We will protect your interests at all times. We can identify problems before they arise. We choose contractors based on their proven track record. They must be dependable, safety-conscious and their product must be of superior quality and come at a value. It’s easy to measure whether a project was completed on time; however, the work that goes on behind the scenes to make it happen without compromising quality, cost or service.
We understand every project is a reflection on you as the building owner and we understand that we are an extension of you and take our role very seriously to uphold the integrity, value and public perception of your asset. We will be your advocate to maximize the impact of the construction project while streamlining the budget and schedule and will make the most prudent decisions with regard to future maintenance costs or future construction needs.
