There are many ways that we can help you control your project costs. The first step is to complete a thorough project feasibility analysis before we even begin to prepare any drawings or specifications. Once we know your project is feasible for you, the next step we take to help control your project costs is to prepare a very detailed set of construction plans and specifications. With these documents, we can solicit multiple bids from qualified contractors of your choosing. Alternatively, if you already have a contractor in mind for your project, a great way to control project costs is to hire us to work with your contract in a “Design-Build” format where we both put our expertise to work for you to control your project costs. Austin Engineering has worked with multiple contractors in a design-build format with great success. Lastly, we can help control your costs by providing construction observation for your project. Through these services, we make sure your project is completed in substantial conformance with our plans and specifications. This helps ensure you receive a quality product and we help your contractor look for ways to save time so that your project is completed on schedule and within budget.
