what I do

fullsizeoutput_947As a construction project manager in Marin County, the San Francisco Bay Area and Napa and Sonoma counties. I will become an integral part of your team. As your home Owner’s Representative, I will oversee the entire process. The amount of time I spend on each project is flexible and can be determined by you the owner. I charge an hourly fee.

Though it’s best to have a home construction project manager throughout the process, there are three distinct stages during which I can help you:

 

DURING DESIGN or PRE-CONSTRUCTION PHASEdesign phase

  • Ensure there is a realistic budget that encompasses all costs both soft (design, engineering, permits), and hard (construction).
  • Ascertain whether the developing design matches the budget and advise accordingly
  • Create a preliminary schedule for the entire process from design to move-in
  • Offer suggestions on products that may enhance the performance of the home
  • Manage communications, ensure everyone is working towards the same goals.
  • Manage negotiations for insurance money
