CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

For faster completion time, better cost control, and fewer problems, the Construction Management Project Delivery System is a great solution for owners. The depth of management skill possessed by Hudson Kitchen & Bath is perfectly suited for Construction Management. Hudson Kitchen & Bath provides in-depth consultation, commendations, and oversight of the entire construction process, allowing the owner to devote their time to their normal activities. Hudson Kitchen & Bath provides Construction Management services on a Negotiated Fee basis. Under a Construction Management Delivery System, Hudson Kitchen & Bath accepts responsibility for managing the design process, preparing budgets and schedules, securing bids and contracts, complying with building codes and government regulations, onsite supervision, scheduling all contractors and procuring all materials, and acting as a liaison between the project and the owner. Hudson Kitchen & Bath has demonstrated that the use of Construction Management as the preferred Delivery System has delivered projects with significant reductions in time, cost, and defects while adding value and increasing overall quality.

Design + Build

There are many reasons why Design/Build has become another preferred Project Delivery System. In a Design/Build Project Delivery System, there is a single source of responsibility between the owner and the Designer/Builder. This process eliminates multiple relationships between the Owner, the Contractors, and the Designers. The owner has only one contractual relationship for the design and construction of the project. Design/Build relationships reduce Design Phase and Construction Phase time cycles due to the dual track design and construction approach. Design/Build also reduces overall cost since project costs can be identified early in the Design Phase allowing the design to be revised to reflect budget goals. Final designs do not typically need to be Value Engineered since budgetary concerns are addressed throughout the design process. Design/Build inherently provides higher quality and value since the singular responsibility serves as a motivator for improved project performance. Hudson Kitchen and Bath's approach to Design/Build is to outsource appropriate Architects, Engineers, Designers, and consultants who are specialists in the type of project being considered. Qualified Contractors and Subconstractors are typically selected early on and are involved in the Design Phase and Preconstruction Phase. Instead of utilizing low bid firms with little knowledge of the project, we negotiate prices with these qualified Contractors who have had involvement in the design process, understand the cost, timing, and quality requirements of the project and are part of the project team.
