A number of firms in New York City have construction management experience. The reality, though, is that not every firm has the right knowledge and skill set to handle certain projects. With so much at stake, why would you hire just anybody?
Here are some questions to ask before selecting a construction management company:
What kind of experience do you have?
Every commercial structure is different. With that in mind, the firm you hire should have years of experience working on projects similar in size and scope.
Consider the Menotti Enterprise team for a moment. Family owned and operated, we have more than 100 years of experience under our belts. It’s safe to say our team has been there and done that in the construction management industry.
Who will be working on our project?
This is another fairly obvious, yet important question to ask. Some firms get away bringing in subcontractors who didn’t attend initial meetings. Frankly, any construction engineering company should make it a point to introduce their entire team, not just a select group.
How will you manage schedules?
You’re on a major time crunch with this project. A reputable firm should understand and respect that. However, we have found that the most common complaint after a commercial construction project is that it was not completed sooner.
Keep in mind that your construction manager is the one responsible for scheduling and sequencing everything. When you ask this question, the response should be precise and specific. It’s imperative to avoid generalities when discussing construction scheduling.
How do you control costs?
We saved arguably the most commonly asked question for last. As significant of an expense as this project may be, your business doesn’t have endless funds. The best construction management firms are the ones that complete projects on time without going over budget.
Every now and then, there will be higher costs than originally expected. Just make sure you have an outline of the processes for approval before moving forward. This will save you from potential headaches down the road.
