Life of the Project

Our vision is to be the best DESIGNBUILD contractor in Southeastern Wisconsin. To achieve this, we use a very rigorous process we call the Life of the Project Manual (LOPM). This process comes from having over 65 years of experience that has been refined into a set program for how we run the entire customer experience. Each step or phase has multiple checklists, schedules, and formats that help us exceed your expectations.

Led by a Project Executive, the team meets with the client to discuss visions and expectations. Conceptual plans are developed to establish an initial budget and set major milestones.

Excitement grows as the building process proceeds. Our team communicates job status, executes the schedule, monitors the budget and provides updates to the owner.

We hand our clients the keys in this final stage, but stay close at hand. Attentive follow-up at various points guarantees our accountability for the work we completed.
