Budgeting

Our deep and extensive experience in construction on almost every type of building enables us to provide you with extremely accurate budgets for anything you need to do, from small improvements to major TI and ground-up projects.

Out standard operating procedure has us develop budgets +10% so there are never any surprises. We would much rather come in under budget than have to submit change orders late in the process, and we will never low bid a project just to stay in the project.

  • Throughout the team of LWG we have deep experience in building, which means we can provide accurate budgeting for everything
  • Note that as we provide an initial budget we provide a 10% bid, so that there are no surprises, because we are a responsible contractor—rather than offer a low bid to stay in the process, we would rather that there be no surprises or change orders late in the project

Preconstruction / Prebuild

The sooner we can be involved with your project, the more value we can add. At the earliest stages of the process, we will tour sites with you and your broker, ensuring that you get a building that can meet your needs as precisely as possible (and understand the benefits and deficits of every building you review). While cost-effectiveness of each building should be something that you review, it’s not necessarily the only concern, and we’ll work with you to develop a comprehensive set of requirements for your facility.

We can also help in choosing the architect or designer—because we know and have worked with many of them—so that you get the right talent to fit your needs and vision of what the final product is supposed to be.

With us, you can be assured that you will get exactly the facility you need, within your budget, and on your schedule.

  • Like to be involved from the beginning, planning and touring buildings with your brokers, so that we can recommend what will be best for you—we do realize that cost-effectiveness is not the only thing to look at when you select a building, but it should be one of the elements, after the building has been selected, we’ll help find an architect or designer to find the one that fits your style the best, and then work with them to ensure that all elements meet your budget and quality needs for the type of facility you need

Scheduling

Scheduling is one of the most complex aspects of construction, and the one where mistakes can have huge effects on your budgets and schedules. That’s why we have chosen to use some of the most advanced and specialized construction scheduling software available.

Any single project beyond the most simple (like changing doors) tends to involve an intense number of details, all of which need to be exactly coordinated to ensure that the right people and products arrive at the right place at the right time.

Anything else exposes you to the risk of errors like having the drywall installers show up two days before the drywall (and then not being able to get them back when the drywall arrives). Mistakes in scheduling are the source of more added costs and frustrations than almost anything else.

At LWG we are experts with precision tools to ensure that that doesn’t happen.

  • Multiple software programs to write and track the most efficient schedule for your project
