Through early engagement, Conkling & Lewis works with the project owner and architect before the plans and specifics are finalized as the Construction Manager at Risk.
As the overall project lead, present during all steps of the design process, Conkling &Lewis is able to perform and provide construction cost estimates, value engineering and constructability reviews at any given point of the design phase. This allows for final plans and specifications to be prepared only once, permitting the owner to consider all alternatives based on factual information rather than guesswork and avoiding time consuming and costly redesigns.
To provide clients with a simple method for building a project, Conkling & Lewis will put together a team suited specifically for the project at hand.
Design-build provides a turn-key solution to the owner by combining the contractor, architect, engineers, and subconsultants into one entity. Utilizing Design-Build can reduce the overall risk for the project owner, save time between communications among designers and contractors, expedite the overall project schedule and reduce project cost by providing the most efficient combination of qualified resources.
