Site Selection
& Due Diligence

The selection of construction sites for both ground-up builds and renovations of existing spaces can be a fast-paced and challenging effort, as multiple project teams require rapid and accurate coordination to assess multiple sites’ potential to fill the needs and desires of the client. Quickly evaluating the potential of a particular site to fulfill a range of requirements while meeting schedule and budget constraints, all within often short windows of opportunity allowed by the seller, can be challenging for many organizations to accurately handle internally. As an extension of your team, PM|CO takes a swift and active role in the facilitation and management of this process.

Cost
Management

Cost Management is not only the cost estimating of a project. PM|CO’s professionals immerse themselves in the life of a project from the start to identify not just raw scope but also how the overall design intent and client or end user goals might affect the budget. PM|CO collaborates well beyond pulling quantities and listing costs, with a proven track record of getting the most value out of every dollar invested.

Scheduling &

Planning for and managing cost and schedule change begins with thoughtful planning and a strong bid and negotiation process. Strategies established up front allow for clarity when change does arise. Despite the best planning efforts, all projects will encounter challenges, and PM|CO is skilled at minimizing impacts, beginning with clear and concise communication, including a recommendation on how to proceed in the best interest of the project.

Building &
Project Recovery

Similar to how PM|CO takes a lead when brought on board early as client representative, project, and cost manager, PM|CO may be brought in at a later date to manage an unforeseen challenge or event. PM|CO’s consultants quickly understand challenges, then create and manage the critical path to success. This may come in the form of a robust design and cost management process, negotiations with a general contractor, detailed trade and resource planning for a schedule recovery effort, and often a combination of all three.

  • Determination of cause(s)
  • Background research
