Successful projects start with some level of project initiation and definition. In these crucial steps, the goals, feasibility, involved parties, scope and desired results are identified and defined.
Typically this phase is completed in 1-3 months for projects that have already largely taken shape, such as moving an existing office to a new location, renovating the current space, etc. For projects that require greater consideration, we provide a much more robust process under consulting services.
Depending on your organization and progress made in project initiation and definition phase, pre-construction and design often requires the most involvement from the client.
During this phase, the architect and consultants move through the design process from test/fits and schematic design, to design development, to construction documents that are sent out for bids to contractors and for approvals from the buildings department. In each of these phases we work with you to prioritize decisions, provide context to the overall project cycle and ensure the project is moving towards its goals.
This is often a critical phase as review and approvals are underway with landlords, regulatory agencies and also as additional consultants and vendors are brought on to the team.
Construction is an exciting phase that is often the busiest time for the project’s team. A time when all hands are on deck as decisions start to become a physical reality.
During this phase there are typically weekly meetings with the owner (or representative), design team, contractor, and additional vendors and consultants as needed. BRE works with each member of the team on a daily basis, ensuring coordination, collaboration and that issues are properly tracked and addressed.
With the project team fully engaged, and the fact that construction represents the largest portion of the project budget, spending in this phase is at its highest. During this phase BRE expands its reporting and documentation considerably to control costs and ensure a close eye on current, expected and potential costs.
The closeout phase is typically marked by the client occupying the space. During this phase punch-list items are completed, warranties and closeout documents are provided and vendor accounts are closed out. Additionally this is a transition phase for the client, moving into ongoing operations and management of the space. In addition to facilitating the closeout process, BRE provides ongoing services to the client to assist in this transition.
