Construction Management

 
inici’s construction management services include consistent and effective communication, careful documentation, budgeting, scheduling, task monitoring, and regular status reports focused on the successful completion of your project.  Critically important to a project’s success, we lead regular project coordination meetings with the project team during construction and maintain meeting minutes and careful documentation in addition to coordinating multiple aspects, and tracking progress.  Most importantly, inici provides leadership to the team, ensuring that the right questions are asked and answered to support careful, informed decisions.  Construction management also includes:

Monthly Pay Request Processing

A key component to construction management, inici monitors funds drawn to date, funds requested, and funds remaining, watching for any changes made to the budget and maintaining an invoice log as well as any backup information for expenses.  Being thorough in tracking budget details and changes ensures informed decisions and minimal surprises for you.  The pay request processing, monitoring, and reports produced by inici exceed industry standards for financial institutions, and our reports have been tested by independent audits to confirm compliance at all levels.

Detailed Record Keeping

This becomes increasingly important during construction oversight.  Logs are maintained for all construction activities and construction administration documents.  We oversee the preparation of punch lists, maintain construction change and quality control documentation, maintain testing and inspection reports, and maintain logs for construction administration documents.  Our record keeping also includes maintaining photo documentation, as well as monthly field observation reports typically summarized into a dashboard report that we provide to you on a regular basis to keep you up to speed in all details and project progress.

Coordination and Communication

Throughout construction, inici offers the leadership and management needed to keep the project goals, schedule, and budget on track.  inici coordinates and manages construction procurement, delivery, and installation, and coordinates consultants, goods, services, and equipment.  As is key in all phases of the project, inici provides budget and contract status reports (baseline, projected, costs to date, etcetera), provides leadership and management to resolve disputes, coordinates inspections by the design team and special inspectors, and provides project updates to you and to the broader community, if desired.

Construction Administration

Through experience inici knows that a regular presence on the job site is an important aspect of construction management; having boots on the ground and eyes on the site creates the clearest line of information and communication.  inici’s construction administration services, therefore, include performing site visits and providing field reports and monthly updates to keep you abreast of the evolving project.  Issue tracking logs are maintained, and clear documentation is kept verifying that the project is moving forward in accordance with budget, schedule, and plan.
