Our Approach

ImageIdea16Through open communications, proactive project management and a commitment to quality and service, V and Company not only ensures you’re satisfied with the completed project; we make the entire remodeling process efficient, safe and enjoyable.

Ultimately, our foremost concern is you, the client. From inception to post completion, we ensure your project’s success through the use of proven project management systems. Throughout the project, we openly communicate with you and the team. Additionally, we regularly issue progress notes, updated schedules and budgets to ensure a timely project that is masterfully carried out.

Below is an overview of our approach to projects. However, each project is unique, and we would be happy to speak with you further about how we can best work with you on your project. 

 

 

Schematics and Project Planning

Some homeowners find it’s cost effective to hire us before or while the architectural plans are being drawn. At this stage, we can forecast the cost of construction for you, providing information to help make decisions and changes when they are easier and less expensive than changing course during construction.

Services Offered:

– Project Budgeting
– Value-engineering
– Scheduling (and its effect on project value)
– Supplier and subcontractor input

 

 

Pre-Construction

In this phase, we review your architectural and engineering plans, estimate costs, collect prices from subcontractors and develop the project schedule. We assist in the permit process, order products and materials, and discuss with you how your plans match up to your budget. If needed, we suggest alternatives that hold down costs while maintaining the overall look and objective of your project.

Services Offered:

– Project budgeting
– Value-engineering
– Design and construction coordination
– Computer scheduling
– Supplier and subcontractor referrals and bid reviews

 

 

Construction

In order to keep all work on track, your project will have a dedicated V and Company on-site supervisor, who will be supported by our project managers and office staff.

At weekly meetings with you, we discuss the construction progress, facilitate decisions and review related project costs.

Services Offered:

– Detailed weekly meetings and meeting minutes
– Detailed estimating and cost reports
– Quality control
– Schedule updates and projections
– On-site and off-site construction supervision
– Fine-tuning field situations requiring attention

 

 

Post-Construction
