One of the critical stages of any project is selecting the architect and engineering companies. Owners and Boards sometimes select the least expensive architectural quote, which is not necessarily the best value. High cost construction elements need extensive design attention. The need to fully understand the architects’ proposals and their qualifications is vital. Understandably, a high percentage of owners and boards have little design or construction experience, yet they have to make multi-million dollar decisions relevant to design and construction. There are many architectural fees that follow a construction budget, so trying to negotiate construction costs without specific knowledge is very difficult. Through the oversight of JUSTCM, these obstacles can be lowered which can result in substantial savings to the owners. JUSTCM consulting services can manage a plan for this selection process.
