L&K Partners is a full-service construction management firm. We offer a full range of construction services to assist you with your project requirements.
The planning stage of a project will greatly determine the project’s success. The more time spent on planning, the better the quality of the preconstruction. In an ideal world, a client hires a Construction Manager during the schematic design stage to work with the design team to establish an initial budget for the project. Getting involved early in the process allows us to identify long lead items that may impact the project schedule and, in some cases, pre-purchase those items so they do not adversely affect the schedule. During this phase, we would also solicit bids from subcontractors, level all submissions and make recommendations to the client.
Our experienced team of Certified Cost Engineers and Quantity Surveyors will assist during the early schematic stage through design development in order to produce comprehensive trade budgets that accurately reflect the scope of work and the sequence of construction. Our highly qualified estimating department tracks and records costs from past projects which allows them to draw from this historical information to provide the most accurate budgets. By offering multiple pricing options, L&K Partners assists our clients in making informed decisions about how and where to spend their budget dollars.
Costs need to be more than monitored and reported; they need to be managed. Our philosophy requires us to identify all cost variances when they occur. We gather this information from multiple sources such as RFP responses, sketches, field reports and project meetings. We estimate all costs impacts immediately and advise the client of such variances to ensure the client has sufficient time to make and educated decision on whether or not to move forward with the change.
