Services: Construction Management

DSW provides the full range of pre-construction planning, programming, budget development, contract and construction supervision, budget management, and project close-out services.

Conceptual Estimating. Early and accurate budgeting helps determine project viability.

Programming. DSW determines and coordinates facility requirements based on the needs of end users.

Project Bidding and Analysis. Bid packages are assembled with effective instructions. Precise bid analysis maximizes cost efficiency and schedule adherence.

Site Development. Site development presents the highest risk portion of most development projects. Unforeseen site conditions ranging from an underground spring to a major archaeological discovery can affect project costs and schedules. While effective feasibility studies can dramatically reduce the risk of unforeseen site conditions, DSW experience on a wide range of sites enables its development and construction teams to address challenges quickly and cost-effectively.

Building Construction. Effective management of the design, bid and construction phases can greatly reduce total facility costs through rigorous schedule and cost oversight.

Construction Accounting and Budget Management. DSW applies refined construction accounting practices to control costs and increase profitability. Superior cash management techniques build strong relationships with contractors and vendors while also reducing nonproductive construction interest costs. Lien waiver tracking, accurate change order review and billing certification are essential components of DSW’s budget management process.

Project Close-Out and Warranty Package Management. DSW coordinates punch list completion and reviews close-out packages to ensure as-built documents, shop drawing and material data sheets are provided.
