KJM PROJECT SERVICES provides pre-construction services to owners, architects, engineers, consultants and general contractors. Integral components of our pre-construction services are quantified budgets, value engineering, advance equipment procurement, existing system analysis, and site condition surveys.
We ensure the client obtains the most competitive price by preparing a detailed project scope analysis prior to soliciting proposals from preselected and pre-qualified subcontractors and vendors. Using computer automation, we have refined the estimating process to produce extremely accurate quantity takeoffs that automatically apply current cost data yielding the most competitive price.
Employing the principles of value engineering at the design stage of a project, we develop optional or alternative methods for delivering the same result at a reduced cost to our clients.
Advance Equipment Procurement can significantly reduce construction schedules and project costs. Mechanical equipment manufacturers often have long lead times for manufacturing key equipment. To ensure delivery of this equipment when it is needed and to avoid "quick ship" or "express delivery" charges, we can make advance purchases for clients.
Existing System Analysis
During the design stage of renovation projects, we evaluate the age and condition of existing equipment. If existing equipment is relatively new and in good condition, it can often be incorporated into the new design saving new equipment costs for our client.
