Cost control is fundamental and starts in the initial stages with the construction staff working with the owner in estimating from preliminary and conceptual information as it becomes available. Our expertise in conceptual estimating will help to avoid false starts, costly modifications and lost opportunities.
Centerre’s cost control system relies heavily on its extensive database using the most technologically advanced software available in today’s marketplace. This ensures that the latest cost and purchasing information is readily available to make timely and accurate cost projections. This cost analysis system becomes an essential tool that can be utilized by the owner and the contractor in making informed decisions during the design phase in order to ensure that the project is completed within the budget.
Centerre also has the necessary market presence in the Colorado market to obtain the amount of subcontractor coverage and bid participation necessary to deliver the most competitive pricing. We closely monitor the subcontractor industry, maintaining a database that tracks past performances, limitations, bonding limits, etc.
A select bid list is created for each project, providing the most qualified bidders from each trade for the specific needs of the job. Each subcontractor’s past performance is graded for consideration in future projects, thus providing the project with the knowledge of past track records. Every client receives three to five bids from each trade and is provided with a complete analysis and review of the bids with Centerre.
