Construction Management

Construction Management is a project delivery system in our toolbox in which we facilitate both design and construction by organizing people, materials and equipment.

As construction management specialists, Blue Sky utilizes Procore to monitor and document project progress while maintaining communication among all team members and clients. With a broad understanding of construction materials and methods, Blue Sky can easily oversee all phases of the design and construction process. Combined with top-notch leadership, we deliver remarkable results from design to completion.

With a commitment to value, our construction management process will help identify the most cost-effective solutions to meet your project’s needs. This allows Blue Sky to monitor and maintain the quality, cost and timeline.

Traditionally, a construction agreement is reached between an owner and architect before the project’s scope is fully realized. In an effort to streamline the process and eliminate unknowns, Blue Sky connects all parties from the beginning. By working as a team, we are able to understand the project’s needs, define the details, and identify the costs prior to launch.

Project Management

While developing a major real estate project from concept to execution, it is vital to anticipate and track the various elements and details involved in the planning process. Based on our historical project data, we are able to accurately establish a budget and prevent unforeseen costs.

Real estate deals often leave our clients at the mercy of a landlord or developer without the ability to select a capable contractor. By choosing Blue Sky, clients receive the benefit of a contractor that can decipher blueprints, evaluate subcontractors, provide value engineering, schedule and budget management, and quality control. All services provide a seamless transaction among the architects, engineers, municipalities, owners and developers. Our experience and relationships allow us to work on your behalf as we continue to monitor each phase of the project.

Design Build

This is the fastest growing and most popular method used to deliver construction projects in America. The Owner manages only one contract with a single point of contact. From the beginning, the designer and contractor work together as a team providing unified project recommendations to fit the Owner’s schedule and budget. All changes are addressed by the entire team leading to collaborative problem solving and innovation. Single-source contracting is a pioneering process which creates a culture of collaborative design-build.

Blue Sky has established these partnerships with design and consulting firms offering the capability to manage the design and construction phases.  We understand that your focus should be on your business and not the construction process. Our design-build project delivery method eliminates the stress of having to communicate the right terminology between each party to ensure that your project gets done on time and with your specific needs in mind. Our approach minimizes risk and allows for client requests to be communicated on time through team integration, resulting in greater collaboration and a more fluid workflow.

The simple approach to construction allows for the team to seamlessly work together from start to finish in a purposeful and collaborative manner. The team focus leads to greater results that otherwise may be unachievable. When owners sit at the same table with the architects, builders, engineers and estimators, groundbreaking ideas are born.This process paves the way for creative solutions to take hold, resulting in costs minimized, schedules streamlined and efficiencies realized.

Design-build is the perfect one-stop-shop which gives you the peace of mind knowing all areas of design, engineering, quality, schedule and budget are covered. Hiring Blue Sky as your design-build contractor gives you a single source of accountability. We’ll work with you to achieve the design, budget, and pace that works for you.

Pre Construction

We are here to ensure your project begins with the ultimate endgame in mind. Blue Sky Construction Management’s pre-construction services include every aspect of your project’s scope. We deliver the insight, expertise, and communication to ensure the project is clearly defined and executable by all parties involved. Before construction begins, we work with our clients on the overall analysis, strategy, and feasibility of the project in question. Involving a general contractor like Blue Sky from the beginning helps guide clients through the project from a constructability viewpoint.

Our process includes:

  • Overall Project Evaluation
  • Site Selection/Analysis 
  • Securing Financing and Fund Sourcing
  • Tax Credits
  • Acquiring Necessary Agency Approvals 
  • Cost and Budget Analysis
  • Scheduling
  • Procurement Management

    Our estimating team offers comprehensive preconstruction planning and budgeting based upon historical project data and current market conditions.

    During pre-construction, Blue Sky partners with clients to ensure a smooth transition from acquisitions, leasing, due diligence and planning to the construction site. The Blue Sky team goes through a discovery process to become thoroughly familiar with the project and your needs as a business owner. 

    Once we understand your goals, we can assist you with your decision to purchase or lease, and then design your project with your objectives in mind. We work with clients to set expectations which will ensure the project’s success.

    Pre-construction is when decisions are made that have the greatest influence on a project’s long-term success. We refer to pre-construction as the IMPACT PHASE of a project. Our thorough pre-construction services drive many of our repeat customers to consider Blue Sky exclusively.

    We believe a project’s ultimate success is measured over many years and the foundation of a successful project is a solid Pre-Construction/Impact Phase assessment.
