At DDC Group Inc, we have an estimation team with the necessary skills to easily take into account the earliest concepts of a project, and then analyze the differing structural; building envelope; and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems that will best deliver on the vision established by the architect. As we work through the preconstruction process with our designers, we’re able to land within a specific estimate range which will be true to the final project results. These final results will be in line with the budget as well as be building plan-accurate.
All members at DDC Group Inc, understand that having a strong team that specializes in preconstruction is the most powerful tool in the toolbox of maintaining budget control. When we take on a project, we examine all of the relevant scenarios associated with scheduling and building. We also address and find a solution to conflicts before they become major issues. Finally, we arrive at a consensus on how to build a project with efficiency in mind. As a result, our clients are empowered to attain the quality project that they seek within the established budget and scheduling constraints.
We concentrate always in providing additional value to each of our clients. Our primary goal is to keep the design of a project at the center of all we do. Using aggressive techniques, we’ll investigate methodologies that will allow us to be more cost effective and save more than just money, but also add something to the overall design. We deeply value short or long term options that help augment a project’s value; while staying in line with its vision. We always maintain and develop cost reduction estimates based on current systems so that we can accurately communicate suggestions that clearly convey impact and engineer value.
It’s during this stage of the contracting process that we start to put together a competent management team as well as create a list of potential subcontracting bidders. As the project moves through different stages, we’ll consistently deliver the needed feedback and also provide valuable insight for both the architects and project owners so that everyone understands how a design idea is fully brought to reality via the use of solid details and a solid construction methodology. We want our project leaders and owners to be fully informed so that they can be confident during the decision making process, so we’ll always provide all of the alternatives that are available at any point during a project.
Our goal is to make the construction process more efficient. We’ll keep both design and construction teams focused on established deliverables that occur regularly so that there is no downtime or reworking period. This efficiency also helps prioritize innovation and reduce waste so that the whole process is improved. With this more efficient process, once again collaboration is part of the process. As a result, our clients reap the benefits of higher efficiency, healthy collaboration, the achievement of vision goals, and clear communication.
Our system of construction management takes into account budgets, the administration of construction phasing, value engineering, site logistics studies, cost estimates, our findings of constructability, and the contractor and team selection process. At DDC Group Inc, we value successful teamwork, and nothing is more important to us than completing projects within the original parameters of success. We believe in collaboration and keeping a laser-tight focus on successful, on-time, on-budget project completion. Our end goal is to ensure that everyone profits from the project; from owners down to the design and build teams.
