Unthank Design Group offers construction coordination services

Construction Coordination

Unthank Design Group provides a continuity of support throughout the design, documentation, bidding and construction phases, and as you occupy your new office.  We recommend a competitive bid process, obtaining bids from a group of pre-selected contractors competing for your construction project. Two to three weeks will be required by the general contractors for bidding your project. The contractor you select, following final contract negotiations, will then submit your drawings for a Building Permit. Once a Building Permit is issued, actual construction can begin. During the construction phase Unthank Design Group reviews submittals and responds to RFIs (request for information) in a timely manner. Our goal is to answer 100% of possible questions in our drawings, specifications and finish schedule – this allows the construction phase to flow smoothly, avoiding delays and Change Orders.

Larger new building projects are more complicated and may require the services of a local professional available for periodic site visits. Your local architectural or construction management professional will represent your interests and assure that what is provided by your contractor matches what is on your drawings. Rest assured, we remain focused on optimal design and communication throughout the design and construction phases of your project and as you move in.
