Construction Management

Our unique approach to construction management (CM) is designed to provide owners with the most comprehensive array of value-added services and the least possible risk. Our construction managers involvement with the design team before construction ensures that the project is designed within the budgeted value. Many people assume that hiring a construction manager means that the project cannot be competitively priced, and this could not be further from the truth! Every construction management project is competitively bid to qualified subcontractors, and the owner has the option of being involved in the process. S&B Construction is a CM that also acts as the contractor, meaning that our superintendents and construction project managers will directly supervise the construction of your facility. Fees can be negotiated and in some cases, fixed to remain unchanged during scope revisions. When performing in this capacity, we are better able to control project costs, schedule and quality. Finally, by assuming greater project risk, we are truly working for you and placing your interests above our own..

Particularly advantageous in financially complex projects requiring meticulous attention to schedule, a true construction management project consist of three phases = preconstruction, bidding and construction. Our goal throughout the process is not only to provide you with a positive construction experience and a quality structure, but also to build your confidence while offering the highest possible value.
