BUDGET MANAGEMENT / VALUE ENGINEERING
Our estimators, project managers and field supervisors work together to review each golf course system and component. Value, quality, and life expectancy are all key components we use to determine which recommendations will best meet the needs of our clients. We use a formalized process to identify, present, and track each value-driven option with detailed submittals for each item, along with a tracking log that offers an overview of the progress of the value engineering process.
SCHEDULE / PROCESS MANAGEMENT
Golf course design and construction occur as a series of phases, structured along a timeline designed to produce deliverables, meet stated goals, and utilize allocated resources. Phases put the scope of work to be completed into perspective and create a structured framework for overall planning and delivery objectives. Phased management and milestone deliverables provide the opportunity for periodic review and reflection – to examine progress at key points, ensuring that the project is proceeding according to an agreed schedule among stakeholder groups.
Golf course design and construction continues to undergo an immense focus on quality, from environmental and regulatory bodies to golfers themselves, quality is directly related to the ongoing and long-term success of each facility. Our veteran construction team is committed to proactively providing critical project information to the client, so that decisions are correctly made to take advantage of opportunities that optimize the quality and value of the finished product. We inherently understand that the quality of information is directly related to efficient decision-making, and this con only be successfully achieved with the commitment of timely communication among all team members.
Our design and construction team understands that those who enjoy golf, often enjoy it because it is an opportunity to engage with the natural environment. Designing an experience which enhances this pleasure, often by improving the environmental state of the site, is central to all our new course and remodeled designs, but this is fruitless without the oversight of an experienced construction team to support the design. It is because of this that we trust only our internal construction team to provide on-site expertise to carry out the design intent and vision in the field.
