The Way A Building Starts Life Sets Its Tone
In too many construction projects, the most stressful and uncertain time is the transition from designed vision to delivered reality. The way construction is handled can even leave a bad taste at the start of the building’s life, at the very time when pride of ownership and occupation should be at their height. Schmidt Associates’ new construction service is built to ensure a totally different experience. Our clients can look forward to the construction phase with confidence as the smooth ending of their journey to an exciting new building.
Better On-site, By Design
We are not better on-site by accident but by design and through design. Our approach to the design discovery and development process is what we call “intentional”. That means we pursue highly client driven outcomes with total focus. And one of the most important of those outcomes, for our clients and for us, is a defined relationship between design, materials, costs, schedule and budget. We don’t move forward until we have that relationship set in stone. As a result, we are confident that our construction phase will run to time and budget, with overruns, change orders and deviations from the financial plan all minimized to the point of elimination. This creates a very sound foundation for building.
Building For You, Building With You
New construction can leave the client feeling marginalized, as a process that at best is unfamiliar and at worst unpredictable takes over. At Schmidt Associates, the experience is completely and positively different. We know that construction is a key aspect of bringing each client’s unique vision to life. So we provide strong, client-advocacy-driven leadership right the way from the basics of construction engineering to our extended services.
Our construction engineering team is dedicated to vigorously representing each of our clients, on everything from single prime contracts to construction management projects. We focus totally on the build work being done right, first time and to the exact client specifications. Our team understands the logistics of construction inside out and will align the design stages internally with the best possible external cost-advantages, labor and materials. Applying better foresight and better insight leads firmly to our being better on-site. And that means Schmidt Associates promises timely completion of projects that always exceed your expectations and are the result of building for you and building with you.
