PROJECT APPROACH

OPEN BOOK ACCOUNTING

RW Allen Construction 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, estimating and general ledger. At any point during the course of construction, RW Allen Construction 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:

QUALITY PROCESS

RW Allen Construction’s approach to quality assurance (QA) is proactive in nature. We provide QA standards through communication, planning, execution, and evaluation. RW Allen’s program is as shown.
