Project Management

Our diverse team of Project Managers have over ninety years’ experience in executing all phases of project design and management on over $600 million in construction projects. We leverage our experience in architecture, engineering, interior design, construction management, HVAC, specification writing, and real estate development to deliver successful projects and exceed our Clients’ expectations, every time.

Domus has saved its Clients up to 6% in cost avoidance and construction expenses. We continuously “mine” for future cost risks and savings opportunities at every phase of each project by utilizing our review and tracking system:

  • Perform a constructability review at the design development and construction document phases
  • Mine for value alternatives in design, construction, and material selections
  • Identify risks before they occur, reducing future change orders, surprising cost increases, and project delays
  • We identify and address the top five reasons for construction cost increases before execution of the contract, by:
    • Finding gaps between the contractor’s scope and the construction documents
    • Identifying and correcting misallocated allowances
    • Correcting inaccurate and unclear Assumptions and Clarifications
    • Clearly define design-build scopes and Owner provided costs
    • Reviewing and enhancing the language of the construction contracts
  • We hire and train expert Project Managers so our clients can focus on what they do best
