Assembling Your Team

But how do you build the team when you're not sure of the skill set required by each of its members?

Extend your power with a cohesive, supportive team.

The heart of this phase is an interview process which will acquaint you with the skills, experience, philosophy, approach, and fees of a select group of design and contracting firms. But you don't have to go it alone. We will present your project information, as a request for proposal, to firms that have been selected based upon the construction delivery system you are contemplating. At the end of the interview process, we will present you with a point by point comparison of the strengths of each firm and assist you in selecting your team members. Here's an example of a typical point by point comparison:

  Comparison with full Firm 1 credit Comparison with no Firm 1 credit
  Firm 1 Firm 2 Firm 3 Firm 1 Firm 2 Firm 3

$750,000 $81,000 $84,000 $113,750 $95,000 $84,417 $113,750

*It is unclear how much of the $14,000 Design Phase fee would be credited during the final phases by Firm 1. We need to clarify this.

It is our job to be sure all the issues hit the table and get fully discussed so that there are no surprises on either side down the road.

This phase is highly interactive and we make sure it focuses on you and your specific situation while making sure you feel fully supported.
