Preconstruction Planning and Construction

Planning is key to any project. Our preconstruction services remove the guesswork. The Crowther Group provides clients with a comprehensive project plan before construction begins; we use tools such as Primavera, Bid Planroom, and Procore to collaborate, saving both time, and money. When quality, safety, timing, and budget come together to deliver on your design, The Crowther Group is there to make it all happen. Our team of professionals will guide you through:

Management at Risk (CMAR)

Building collaborative partnerships is our mission. Our significant experience using the Construction Manager At-Risk delivery method to deliver numerous private & public CMAR & GMAX projects makes us the right choice to embark on any integrated project. Through project design assist and pre-construction efforts, we complete projects on budget and, through our suggested construction means and method solutions, we complete projects on time or ahead of schedule. On many fast-track construction projects, The Crowther Group comes into the project early to work in conjunction with the owner, program manager, architectural, and engineering consultants as a trusted advisor through the design phase. This keeps lines of communication transparent so the project progresses seamlessly to its budget-focused design intent.
