PROJECT APPROACH

RW Allen has a unique project approach. All of our projects are predicated upon our stated construction management philosophies, providing each client with a controlled program of quality Pre-Construction and Construction services. Our goal on every project is to achieve value through innovative purchasing techniques and to ensure efficiency through absolute project management control. RW Allen's core competencies are reinforced by the following principles:

  • Absolute dedication to team goals
  • Emphasis on value derived from detailed cost estimating and creative thinking
  • Communication between all Team members - critical to the efficient use of the professionals engaged on the project
  • Above all, client satisfaction is the measure of success for any project!
OPEN BOOK ACCOUNTING

RW Allen, LLC has always operated its projects with an "Open Book Accounting" approach, encouraging Owners to review any accounting information associated with their projects. Our accounting staff and project administrators work together to monitor job costs using Timberline Software, a leading accounting system in our industry. This system interfaces payroll and labor costing, accounts payable, job costing and general ledger. At any point during the course of construction, R.W. Allen can provide, upon a client's request, customized accounting reports such as cost projections, cash flow, and financial planning summaries.

ESTIMATING PROCESS

Our preconstruction team utilizes the same process through several stages of the project. The stages are 1) Concept Estimate; 2) Schematic Estimate; 3) Design / Development Estimate; 4) Preconstruction Estimate; and 5) Construction Estimate. Estimating at each stage of the process allows the Team to continually hone cost and refine the process throughout the stages of preconstruction. Our process for each stage encompasses the following:
