The construction management process is a working partnership, a collaboration between three parties: owner, architect and construction manager.
The collaboration of these parties begins early in the conception of the project when priorities and goals are being identified, early stages of architectural design are reviewed, engineering requirements are considered and value engineering is developed.
Through the value engineering process the construction manager identifies not only cheaper costs of materials and equipment, but also savings in the more elusive concept of putting it all together for bigger savings on a project-wide scale. Because we are involved so early in the project, the construction manager is able to participate in and offer ideas at inception that will affect the entire project in a very positive manner.
"It’s been a pleasure working with Naylor and Breen on the $6,000,000 renovation/addition to the historic Bread Loaf Inn at Middlebury College. The College’s schedule dictates construction through the dead of winter and your company has done an excellent job of organizing a complicated project and maintaining progress on a tight schedule. Kevin Burke, the project superintendent, is easy to work with and a very competent guy. We appreciate that Naylor & Breen has the capability to self-perform the carpentry work and have found your field staff to be friendly and capable. We also appreciate the fairness shown in handling the inevitable changes in the work. Tanner Romano, project manager, and John Eugair, project engineer, have handled the submittals and paperwork in a timely and friendly way. All in all, you’ve done an excellent job to date and we look forward to our next project together."
