Construction Management

Construction management is a project delivery system in our toolbox in which we facilitate both design and construction by organizing people, materials and equipment.

Blue Sky specializes in construction management. We monitor and document the project progress and maintain communication between all team members and client throughout the entire project. We offer our expertise with construction materials and methods, project scheduling and cost control to oversee all phases of the design and construction phases. Additionally we have top-notch leadership and expertise to deliver a quality project from design to completion.

With a commitment to construction management, we will identify the best cost-effective solutions to meet your project’s needs. It will provide for a higher level of control on quality, cost and timeline. We monitor and document the project progress and maintain communication between all team members and client throughout the entire project.

Traditionally, construction arrangements involve the owner hiring an architect to design a space or structure, and the two parties working directly with each other. Beyond the completion of the design, this process can become like a roller coaster ride of negotiations and disagreements over plan and costs. In a construction management relationship, Blue Sky joins the owner and architect at project inception. We work with both the owner and architect to understand their needs and visualize the details and the cost long before anything ge

Project Management

When facing a major real estate project, you need to anticipate and track the myriad elements and details along the path from concept to execution while avoiding risk. A well-managed project can save you not only from headaches, but also from cost overruns. We have historical information on what a project costs and where the money is spent. Based on our broad experience, we anticipate issues and deal with them immediately.

Real estate deals often leave our clients at the mercy of the landlord or developer when it comes to choosing a contractor. We’ve built our company history on reading blueprints, evaluating subcontractors, value engineering, schedule and budget management, quality control, and working seamlessly with architects, engineers, municipalities, owners, and developers. We put these experiences and relationships to work on your behalf, monitoring every aspect of the process for you, so you don’t have to worry.

Design Build

This is the fastest growing and most popular method used to deliver construction projects in America. The Owner manages only one contract with a single point of responsibility. The designer and contractor work together from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the Owner’s schedule and budget. Any changes are addressed by the entire team, leading to collaborative problem-solving and innovation. While single-source contracting is the fundamental difference between design-build and the old ways, equally important is the culture of collaboration inherent in design-build.

Blue Sky has established these partnerships with design and consulting firms offering the capability to manage the design and construction phases.  We understand that your focus should be on your business and not the construction. Our design-build project delivery method eliminates the stress of having to communicate the right terminology between each party to ensure that your project gets done on time and with your specific needs in mind. Our approach minimizes risk and allows for client requests to be communicated on time through team integration, resulting in greater collaboration and a more fluid workflow.

You might say it’s a simple approach to construction. A team working together from start to finish in open communication and purposeful collaboration to deliver otherwise unachievable results. It’s the notion that when owners sit at the same table with architects, builders, engineers and estimators, great ideas — the best ideas — are born. And the way is paved for creative solutions to take hold, resulting in costs minimized, schedules streamlined and efficiencies realized.

Design-build is the perfect one-stop-shop, giving you the comfort and peace of mind in knowing all facets of the task at hand – design, engineering, quality, schedule, and budget – are covered. Hiring us as your design-build contractor allows for single-source accountability. Don’t like the design? We’ll change it. Too expensive? We’ll find a way for you to save. Too slow? We’ll fast track it for you.

General Contracting

At Blue Sky, we pride ourselves on giving our clients more than they expect. If you have an architect, you have drawings and you’re ready to build, we’re here to get the job done. And we’ll deliver an exceptional project with a headache-free owner experience.  Our experienced professionals work in unison with the project team to ensure a timely delivery and a successful project.  We have the track record to prove it.

Our general contractors supervise part or all of numerous construction projects, such as commercial, industrial and residential buildings. If a construction project requires a specialty, such as plumbing, heating and air conditioning, painting or roofing, then we hire subcontractors to do that particular job. Our licensed general contractors have generations of experience planning, managing, and executing multiple large construction projects across the United States.

Whether it’s a negotiated or hard-dollar bid, we fully understand the bidding process and can offer solid numbers based on a clear understanding of job scope. We’ve delivered INSERT NUMBER square feet of construction while serving as general contractors. Always on-time and on-budget. Through the years, our clients have ranged from INSERT CLIENT and INSERT CLIENT to INSERT CLIENT and INSERT CLIENT.

Pre Construction

We are here to ensure your project begins with the ultimate endgame in mind. Blue Sky’s pre-construction services includes every aspect of your project’s scope. We deliver the insight, expertise, and communication to ensure the project is clearly defined and executable by all parties involved. Before construction begins, we work with our clients on the overall analysis, strategy, and feasibility of the project in question. Involving a general contractor like Blue Sky early on in the process helps guide clients through the project from a constructibility viewpoint.

Our process includes:

  • Overall Project Evaluation
  • Site Selection/Analysis 
  • Securing Financing and Fund Sourcing
  • Tax Credits
  • Acquiring Necessary Agency Approvals 
  • Cost and Budget Analysis
  • Scheduling
  • Procurement Management

 

    Our estimating team offers comprehensive preconstruction planning and budgeting based upon historical project data and current market conditions.

    In addition to a functional building, customers need fiscal prudence, a reliable schedule, and exceptional quality. Our pre-construction methods are designed to achieve each without sacrifice for the other.

    During pre-construction, Blue Sky partners with clients to ensure a smooth and painless transition from acquisitions, leasing, due diligence and planning to the construction site. The Blue Sky team goes through a discovery process to become thoroughly familiar with the project and your needs as a business owner. 

    Once we understand your goals, we can help you make a wise business decision on the purchase or lease, and then design your project with your objectives in mind. We work with clients to set expectations and ensure the project’s success.

    Pre-construction is when decisions are made that have the greatest influence on a project’s long-term success. We refer to pre-construction as the IMPACT PHASE of a project. Our thorough pre-construction services drive many of our repeat customers to consider Blue Sky exclusively.

    We believe a project’s ultimate success is measured over many years and the foundation of a successful project is a solid Pre-Construction/Impact Phase assessment.

    In addition to a functional building, customers need fiscal prudence, a reliable schedule, and exceptional quality. Our pre-construction methods are designed to achieve each without sacrifice for the other.
