Working With Us
Any construction project has three key members: client, architect, and builder. Each of these primary contributors must work in harmony with the same goals to achieve a successful construction project. A.P. Savino LLC works in two contracting formats: Construction Management and General Contracting. Each process has its own unique advantages and disadvantages depending on factors such as site, structural complexity, design team, and client involvement. One of the most important differences is how profit and overhead are earned. Construction Management is fee based and General Contracting, margin based. A.P. Savino offers the same level of service whether acting as Construction Manager or General Contractor. Long after concepts are forgotten, drawings files away and the checkbook balanced, you will be looking at, stepping on, and living under the builder’s contribution to your project.
Construction Management Option
- We work for you, not against you- we are part of the team.
- You can evaluate each of the many decisions you will need to make in a timely fashion. You can review many more options than if you try to make all your decisions upfront. You make informed decisions.
- We handle the budgets, accounting, bidding, contracts, inspections, schedule, quality assurance, payments, lien waivers, insurance, warranties, etc. You and the architect handle the products, design and finishes you desire.
- We eliminate all risks of a general contract: under bid and incomplete, shoddy work, tardiness, delays, constant and expensive change orders, etc.
- We do the numbers, numbers, numbers. We start with a pre-bid budget, the update it with a proposal budget, finally tracking each line item of actual cost against the proposal budgets.
General Contracting Option
- We work closely with you, your architect, interior designer and landscape architect to interpret design and construction issues.
- All details of a project are worked out before contracts are signed and all modifications are documented and approved in written change orders.
- You have greater control of cost and schedule.
