At Bordeaux Construction, we feel that including us on the Project Team during the design phase that we can take the project to another level of success. We feel that no one knows better than us to foresee potential problems in a project during the design phase. We are faced with solving many of these problems day in and day out during construction. We are confident that our estimating, scheduling, and design phase cost analysis are up-to-date and accurate because they are the same processes that we use in a competitive bid environment. As part of the Design Phase Project Team, we will work with the designer and owner to value engineer the project, project constructability reviews, and help foresee any problems that may arise in the quality and safety.
