This is the heart and soul of RUSS+CO CONSTRUCTION. We subcontract all trades and obtain multiple bids per trade on each project. The savings from this approach are then passed on to our clients.
In addition to managing our own subcontractors, we provide coordination of the owner’s vendors for the duration of the project, including scheduling activities and milestones to structure and monitor work progress. We have our own skilled and experienced staff of project managers and site foremen.
In situations where construction expertise is needed at the very beginning of a construction project, RUSS+CO CONSTRUCTION can assume the role of construction manager. In this procurement method, we act as the owner's primary consultant throughout the design, construction, and close-out phases of the projects.
Developing RFPs, preparing budgets and schedules, managing design teams, vendors, and general contractors, and assuring project compliance with authorities having jurisdiction are some of the services offered in this format.
We can provide design services through the traditional route of hiring and managing architects, engineers, and consultants. By managing the design team as we would our subcontractors, we pass along savings to the client and more efficiently manage the design process preventing unchecked scope growth or missing details. Some projects are not large enough in scale or need to be completed too quickly to warrant the traditional design-bid-build procurement. In this situation, we have the ability to develop space plans and details from existing as-built drawings or marketing plans. This scenario allows our clients to quickly get deals signed or work completed when time or budget does not allow for a permitted design.
We provide construction expertise to legal, bonding and insurance professionals.
Our services include claims preparation, analysis, cost estimating and scheduling, property loss evaluation, property condition assessment, quality assurance, and peer review.
Managing multiple concurrent and phased projects takes a well experienced team that understands the logistics of the program and the client's needs.
Lease deals and available project funding are the two primary drivers of program management that are time sensitive and require exceptional planning, coordination, and execution. We are able to manage programs as general contractor and/or construction manager.
As capital budgets and staffing capabilities continue to decline, it is crucial to have the necessary resources to complete capital improvement and facilities maintenance projects.
By becoming an extension of our client's staff, we are able to develop accurate pricing and to complete construction projects that engineering and property management teams are unable to complete in-house.
Completing property upgrades and maintenance is vital to a portfolio's marketability and functionality.
