Building construction begins long before the first brick is laid. It starts with the initial concept of the building itself and the selection and development of the right construction method. The VMJR Companies (VMJR) offers the following construction delivery systems:
Program ManagementWhen an owner does not have the in-house capability to oversee a project, VMJR will serve in the capacity of the owner’s facilities department. As Program Manager we will assist in programming facility needs and project planning through the selection of the architect/general contractor. VMJR will serve as facilities manager for multiple projects and/or multiple sites facilitating the decision making process. VMJR will provide assistance in site selection, financial pro-forma’s, permitting assistance, grant application, public funds and financial incentive program applications. We will assure the building will meet the client’s needs today and into the foreseeable future.
Design/BuildAs a member of a Design/Build (D/B) team, VMJR becomes a partner with both the owner and the architect. By including VMJR with the programming and design function, the owner is able to utilize their skills and experience to provide valuable input into construction costs, value engineering, marketplace conditions and project scheduling. Throughout the process each D/B participant pools their skills, knowledge, and resources to bring a project to fruition. This team approach allows the project to be fast-tracked, with construction beginning while design is still in process.
Construction ManagementAs Construction Managers (CM), VMJR serves as an agent for the owner. Providing construction leadership throughout the project within a defined scope of services. As CM, VMJR represents the interest of the owner and manages the work, including cost, time and quality of the project as well as guarantees the cost of construction. Additionally we can provide a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for non-public clients.
General ConstructionWhen in the role of General Contractor (GC), VMJR provides an owner with a lump sum price and construction leadership to produce a quality project on time and within budget. VMJR as GC will guarantee that the project will be completed as described in the plans and specifications and with experienced and capable personnel leading the project.
