What we do
At Build-Ops, we believe that the success of any project is dependent, upon other things, on how it starts. The groundwork of thismethodology is developed when we sign-on as your PM (Pre- construction Manager) during the design phase. Our pre construction services in NYC result in a smoother transition from the design-phase to construction. By working early with your project team, we have the ability to optimize your project’s constructability, provide you an accurate budget and schedule, shorter project durations, evaluate building materials, provide value engineering options, minimize construction phase change orders, and reduce design and construction contingency costs – all resulting in cost-savings to you.
Every project is unique. Therefore, we will develop a customized program that addresses your project’s unique needs and challenges. Partnering with us at the beginning of your project will improve your decision-making, reduce construction risk and avoid claims. Choosing our team also benefits you by providing constructability reviews and suggestions, creating alternate phasing and schedules, evaluating any value engineering options, and an accurate “No Surprises” Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for your project.
