Being an owner's representative on a construction and development project means acting as the liaison between the project owner and the various parties involved in the project, such as architects, contractors, and suppliers. The owner's representative ensures that the project is executed according to the owner's vision, goals, and specifications. At SMC Projects, we oversee the project's progress, budget, and schedule, and communicate updates and concerns to the owner.

 

We advise the owner on project delivery systems and forms of contracts, making sure outcome is as desired. We serve as a single point of contact between contractors and designers, removing the owner from the back-and-forth nature of this part of the process. We analyze constructability, keep an eye on budget, and protect the best interest of the owner. Learn more about SMC Projects.

Great Preconstruction planning for a construction and development project involves thorough preparation and organization before the actual construction begins. SMC Projects goal is to identify potential challenges, mitigate risks, and optimize the project's timeline and budget. Proper Preconstruction planning sets the foundation for a successful construction project by ensuring that all necessary resources, permits, and approvals are in place before construction starts.

SMC Projects process consists of several phases that help ensure a smooth and successful construction project. These phases typically include:

 

1. Project Initiation: This phase involves defining the project's objectives, scope, and requirements. It includes conducting feasibility studies, site analysis, and determining the project's financial viability.

 

2. Design Development: In this phase, the project's design is developed and refined. Architects, engineers, and other professionals collaborate to create detailed drawings, specifications, and construction documents. Cost estimates and value engineering exercises may also be conducted during this phase.

 

3. Cost Estimation: Cost estimation involves determining the overall budget for the project. It includes estimating the costs of materials, labor, equipment, permits, and other project-related expenses. Accurate cost estimation is crucial for financial planning and securing funding.

 

4. Scheduling: Scheduling involves creating a timeline for the project, including key milestones and deadlines. It considers factors such as construction sequence, resource availability, and potential delays. A well-developed schedule helps ensure that the project stays on track and is completed within the desired timeframe.

 

5. Procurement: During this phase, the necessary materials, equipment, and subcontractors are identified and procured. The procurement process includes obtaining quotes, negotiating contracts, and ensuring that all necessary permits and licenses are in place.

 

6. Risk Assessment: Risk assessment involves identifying and evaluating potential risks and uncertainties that may impact the project. This includes analyzing factors such as environmental risks, regulatory compliance, market conditions, and unforeseen events. Risk mitigation strategies are developed to minimize the impact of potential risks.

 

7. Stakeholder Management: Throughout the Preconstruction planning process, effective communication and collaboration with stakeholders are essential. This includes engaging with project owners, architects, engineers, contractors, and other parties involved in the project. Regular updates, meetings, and coordination help ensure that everyone is aligned and working towards the project's goals.

 

By following these phases and conducting thorough analysis and planning, the Preconstruction planning process sets the stage for a successful construction and development project.

We consult and advise on land or building acquisitions and development. Learn more about how we work.

Our project management services are thorough and honest, and always delivered with the highest professionalism.  As project managers for real estate development and improvement projects, we:

 

  • Collaborate with engineers, architects, and designers to determine the specifications of the project.

  • Negotiate contract(s) with external subcontractors and vendors to reach profitable agreements on scope and cost. We create a plan that defines the zones and activities in each zone of the space.

  • Obtain permits and licenses from appropriate authorities, and create a space plan that defines the circulation patterns showing how people will move through the space.  

  • Supervise a wide range of construction projects from start to finish. Organize and oversee construction procedures and ensure they are completed in a timely fashion.

  • Ensure all projects are delivered on time according to project requirements and without exceeding budget.

  • Determine needed resources (manpower, equipment and materials) from start to finish with attention to budgetary limitations.

  • Acquire equipment and material, and monitor stocks to timely handle inadequacies.

  • Hire contractors and other staff and allocate responsibilities.

  • Supervise the work of laborers and mechanics, and provide guidance when needed.

  • Evaluate progress and prepare detailed report(s).

  • Ensure adherence to all health and safety standards, and report issues.
