Syler Custom Homes considers it very important to be involved in the very beginning stages of the planning process in order to help each client determine which method is right for their project.
We provide a complete range of services including:
- Construction Management
- Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP)
- Traditional General Construction Service
Offering a wide variety of pre-construction services enables us to tailor each project to our clients’ needs, goals, and budget. This kind of flexibility results in a client receiving the best facility and building process for their budget and schedule.
Our concept of construction management centers around the introduction of a Syler Custom Homes project manager who acts as the owner’s agent and manager of the entire building process. Construction management is most effective when the construction manager assists the Owner in arranging for and coordinating efforts with the architects, engineers, and consultants used in the project. This ensures efforts are coordinated and not duplicated right from the very start of the design process to final completion.
Overall, there are three benefits to using the construction management approach:
- It brings a general contractor’s knowledge to the architect early in the design phase.
- It puts the system which controls men, money, and materials to work directly for the Owner’s interest.
- It allows design and construction to proceed concurrently, saving time and; therefore, money.
At Syler Custom Homes, the design/build approach simply means consolidating the architectural design and construction services, making both phases the responsibility of one single provider. Syler Custom Homes selects a qualified team of architects, engineers and key subcontractors that best fit our clients’ goals and objectives for budget, schedule and quality. In many cases, the design/build process provides the simplest and most economical method of project completion and has the added benefit of single source accountability.
Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP)
Selected for projects based on our qualifications and reputation, Syler Custom Homes is often asked to provide clients with a Guaranteed Maximum Price, or GMP. Well known in the industry for our cost estimating and management capabilities, Syler Custom Homes confidently takes the risk of establishing a maximum price and performing the work with our exceeding that number. Clients have the added advantage of knowing fairly early in the design process what their project will cost.
Traditional General Construction
At a time when many contractors are merely brokers of construction services, Syler Custom Homes cultivates an equal mix of design/build, construction management, GMP, and traditional general construction. This approach enables Syler Custom Homes to maintain its competitiveness and versatility while staying current with the latest in construction technology.
