HOW WE WORK

At SMC Projects, we go above and beyond to provide exceptional service that ensure every detail is taken care of. We understand that your time is valuable, so we handle everything from start to finish, leaving you free to focus on what matters most.

 

Our process begins with a thorough pre-design phase where we actively listen to your needs and gather specific requirements. We then assemble a comprehensive list of your requests and prepare a preliminary cost estimate, giving you a clear understanding of the project's financial scope. Additionally, we establish a project schedule, ensuring that all deadlines are met with precision.

 

Moving into the preliminary design phase, we expertly synthesize your program, building codes, site constraints, and budget. This allows us to update the cost estimate accurately, giving you peace of mind knowing that your project is on track.

 

During the design development stage, we explore various design alternatives and meticulously investigate material choices. We work closely with you to finalize the building layout and style, ensuring that every detail aligns with your vision. To keep you informed, we provide a comprehensive review of the design development cost estimate, giving you full transparency throughout the process.

 

When it comes to contract documents, we leave no stone unturned. Our team fully documents the project scope of work, creating detailed plans and specifications that leave no room for ambiguity. We finalize the cost estimate, providing you with a clear understanding of the financial aspects of the project.

 

During the bidding and negotiation phase, we take charge of managing the entire process. We carefully review and select potential qualified bidders, conducting pre-bid walkthroughs, meetings, and addressing any questions that may arise. Our expertise allows us to review, evaluate and level bids effectively, providing you with valuable insights to make informed decisions. We advise you on contractor/consultant selection, ensuring that you have the best team in place to bring your project to life.

 

Once the construction begins, our contract administration services ensure smooth progress. We conduct frequent site observation visits, answering questions, clarifying details, and reviewing submittals. Regular job meetings are held, and detailed minutes are distributed to keep everyone involved informed. We review, modify, and approve applications for payment, ensuring that everything stays on track. And when the project nears completion, we prepare a punch list to address any remaining tasks, ensuring that every detail is perfect.

 

Even after the construction is complete, our commitment to your satisfaction continues. We compile warranties, schedule owner and personnel training, and obtain bank certifications, ensuring that you have all the necessary documentation and knowledge to confidently move forward.

 

At SMC Projects, we take pride in our comprehensive approach to preconstruction, owner representation and project management. With our expertise and attention to detail, we guarantee a seamless experience from start to finish.

 

Let us handle the complexities while you enjoy the results of a successful project!
