A Partnership Approach

When a project is brand new…

As an owner, you know that successful, new projects always begin and end with a solid plan. By participating right up front in the pre-construction planning, we can closely monitor the course of construction all the way through the closeout administration phase. With early involvement and evaluation of project scope, design, costs, constructability, and schedule we can significantly increase the likelihood of your goals and objectives being met.

As owner representative, we will assume a leadership role to integrate with your team and work in tandem with your group. Our extensive experience in spearheading multiple project based efforts while managing, motivating, and leading project teams sets us apart .

We make it our top priority to facilitate clear communication that ensures a unified effort and keeps things on track throughout the project lifecycle. One of our key strengths is in liaising with internal groups (such as real estate, finance, and purchasing).

When a project needs fixing…

Sometimes a project develops issues that are more complex than the current project team realizes, or has the resources to handle. As owner representative, Steve and his team will review the work in progress on a troubled project, analyze past performance, review contract documents, and solicit input from the client before taking appropriate action.

This is where SD Advisory can be brought in to intervene, course correct, and get the project moving in the right direction to achieve its objectives. We encourage the design team, contractors, and suppliers to work together.

Steve will quickly marshal his team to develop an execution plan and make necessary recommendations. We will stay on as your staff extension and hands-on project manager to ensure the project gets back on track.

Steve’s Group will resolve problems that include:

  • Difficulties in meeting milestones and/or completion deadlines
  • Significant and/or critical technical issues
  • Failure to deliver anticipated benefits
  • Consistently and/or significantly behind schedule and budget

When challenges arise, be assured that our expert, problem-solving team will address them head-on to ensure the project moves forward on a defined, and well thought-out path.

“Over the years I have maintained a well-deserved reputation as a goal oriented project champion with long-term business connections and high-value customers.”
