Construction Administration / Management
Hulbert realizes that throughout the construction phase, clients are at their greatest risk for incurring increased costs, time delays, contractor claims, and inconsistent quality. For that reason, we are aggressive in leading the construction process and acting on our clients’ behalf. Our in-depth expertise and knowledge of the entire construction process make us an informed and collaborative partner, providing accountability for our clients.
Recognizing that the construction phase of a project is often the most unpredictable and challenging, Hulbert’s construction administration team works to serve our clients’ best interests.
At Hulbert, we understand the importance to keep costs in line without jeopardizing the quality of the project. We recognize the challenges in procuring permits for projects through the various agencies, and the potential for design changes due to these reviews.
As comments are received and implemented into the plans, we review the overall effect the changes create to the project and identify solutions while maintaining quality while always keeping the focus on value engineering throughout the project.
Construction Project Management is the direction, regulation, and supervision of a project from initial development to completion. We seek to provide a viable project both in terms of functionality and budget. Communication is the key to excellence in project management, and we have decades of successful experience.
