Introduction

Continental Builders has CA licensed, in-house architecture, experienced project managers and superintendents that increase project efficiency by using one source for management, entitlement, pre-construction, and construction.  The following are descriptions of proposed scopes of services for this design-build project.

Project Management

From preliminary planning through occupancy, project management is a key factor in any projectís success.  The PM scope shall include; project scope definition, Owner contract preparation, project scheduling, information gathering (soils report etc.), Owner liason for requests for information, and administration of applications for payment.

Agency Entitlement

Knowledge of local zoning and building codes only goes so far.  Where the consultant coordinating drawings is the same consultant approving the drawings, efficiency exists.  Scope includes; schematic design, planning approval, architectural and various other disciplinesí(structural, mechanical etc.) drawing coordination, and building department approval.

Pre-Construction

Preliminary and on-going budgeting helps for cost control.  Preconstruction activities shall include coordinating project materials specifications, identifying and selecting sub-contractors, and forward thinking to minimize change orders or delays.

Construction

Continental will pull the building permit, contract directly with all subcontractors to construct the project, schedule all inspections, and procure all building and safety approvals.`  

Summary

The process summarized above is intended to outline a client-inclusive approach wherein the scope of work is determined, agreed-upon by the owner, and project costs are made available throughout the development process for owner review.
