Our Project Management Approach
Spire has developed a construction project management approach based on our origin as a claims consulting firm. This background gives us a unique and in-depth understanding of what can go wrong on a project. We use this knowledge to identify potential trouble spots before they develop into problems, and to recommend or initiate preventive action through strategic planning and controls. We vigilantly watch over all aspects of a project, from design review and long-lead items through schedule and budget updates and inspection during construction. As Project/Construction Managers or Owner’s Representatives, Spire has managed all phases of the construction process from pre-design through completion, including cost/budget controls, scheduling, cost estimating, expediting, contract administration, inspections, and control of contractors and suppliers.
Successful construction project management of complex jobs demands a proactive approach. Spire offers such an approach by featuring professionals who have the experience, skills, and technical support to tackle complex projects. Spire’s professionals have hands-on experience in managing even the most challenging projects.
