Production Building Based Scheduling Techniques
‘stack’ our subs when possible and when it will not sacrifice quality. Several ‘behind the wall’ and ‘rough trades’ can work in the house at the same time together including while the roof is going on and windows are going in. We use Microsoft Project ‘Gantt Chart Schedules’ which allows us to always know the fastest ways to finish our projects with its ‘Critical Path’ feature.
Production Scale Core Subs
Many of our vendors are large scale companies with large staffs allowing them to complete their projects much faster given the repetition, without sacrificing quality, compared to smaller companies in the same trade. These large-scale companies also work off tighter profit margins which creates savings for the project.
Expert Project Management
Our project managers have all overseen a variety of ultra-high-end custom homes ranging from 1.5-milion to 25-million-dollar projects on a multitude on property types such as flat lots, hillsides and mountainsides.
