Development and Construction
Our management philosophy is simple; we approach every project wearing the "owner's hat". Commercial Building Contractors provides the necessary tools required to govern the development of a project from concept through completion of construction. A detailed concept budget is established at the beginning of a project rather than after the bid process. This concept budget is then used as a tool to guide the development/design process, performing multiple budget checks during the design phase to ensure there are no surprise cost overruns.
