Construction Services

Our Owner’s Representation/Owner’s Project Management and Program Management services have assisted hundreds of municipalities, developers, and public authorities in the properly administrated construction of building projects such as office buildings, hotels, schools, universities, fire stations, police stations, libraries, and town halls. We differentiate ourselves because of our of our construction, forensic, engineering, environmental, and architectural resources, so we can add value on all phases of a construction project.

Owner's Representation

Our Owner’s Representation assignments typically cover every phase of a project from pre-construction to closeout. Through the pre-construction phase, VERTEX assists clients with: program definition; Architect/Engineer selection; budget; contractor selection; value engineering; and schedule milestones. During the construction phase, VERTEX manages the contract administration process to ensure all parties perform contractual duties relating to safety, quality, schedule, and overall contract compliance.

Program Management

VERTEX is routinely ranked by Engineering News Record (ENR) as one of the top Program Management Firms in the country. VERTEX serves as a program manager to oversee a group of related projects in a coordinated manner so that clients can gain economies of scale and to ensure project controls are consistent across multiple projects. Coordinated program management offers benefits that are not available when projects are managed individually, as resources are harmonized and prioritized across projects to lower the overall costs and risks of a program. Reports exceed the requirements outlined by ASTM, and take the cost estimating and long-range budget forecasting a step further by including an additional Capital Needs estimate for longer term evaluations.
