Hollis & Spann will put our experience to work for you. We complete projects on time and within—or under—budget. One measure of client satisfaction is the willingness of clients to commit their projects to Hollis & Spann on a repeat basis.

Initially make the decision to contract with us because of our reputation in the construction industry.  They come back to Hollis & Spann with future projects because of their satisfaction with our performance. We are proud that most of our current projects are with repeat clients. 

Most of these repeat clients choose either construction management or guaranteed maximum cost contracts. These methods allow our clients access to Hollis & Spann pre-construction services and also afford them the opportunity to realize considerable savings. When you contract with Hollis & Spann, your trust in us is always greatly valued.  We give the same careful attention to the management of your project as we give to each of our projects, regardless of size. 

CONTRACTING METHODS

In today’s market, changing material and labor costs motivate owners to be more cautious in proceeding with a project prior to completion of design work and cost estimates. Hollis & Spann has the ability to estimate and guarantee the cost of a project based on a preliminary set of drawings, giving the client the security of a maximum cost up front.

Examples of how we achieve this are the cost plus/guaranteed maximum cost and construction management contracts. Both allow your project to begin simultaneously with design on a cost-plus basis with a predetermined maximum cost based on the preliminary set of design drawings. Every phase of the project is competitively bid, and you the owner, pay only the actual cost plus a fee. If the project comes in under budget, savings are passed directly to you. Because time is money, this fast-tracking aids, in the completion of your job in less time than is required for the traditional design-bid-build project.   

 PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

  • PRE-DESIGN BUDGET:

Using historical data and knowledge of current market conditions, Hollis & Spann can quickly price various design schemes for your project. This allows the owner and designers to explore options and confirm project budget prior to starting project design efforts.

  • COLLABORATIVE DESIGN REVIEW:

During the design process, we will review the documents to ensure that the documents are clear, the construction details are efficient and the architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical drawings are coordinated. This process reduces owner, contractor confusion during construction, minimizes change orders and provides a positive experience for owner, contractor and designer. 

  • TO SUMMARIZE:

At Hollis & Spann, our pre-construction process is important, so we do it very well and reliably. This allows the owner to accurately know the budget for a project prior to completion of the design and in advance of starting construction.

Our experience has taught us the value or this early process with the end result of a better product and a positive experience for all involved.
