Introduction: State Home Construction was established in Phoenix, Arizona, in September of 1998. The company was conceptualized on the foundation of professionalism, reliability, quality, and trust. Each project is unique and individualized to meet the contracting needs of our clients.
The owner of our company has knowledge and practical experience in both residential and commercial builds. He has an educational background in finance and understands the importance of budget and time constraints. State Home Construction has established long-term relationships with various subcontractors and clients throughout the state of Arizona due to over 20 years of experience in construction.
Under design/build, the owner enters into a contract with State Home Construction, who then employs the architect as a consultant. This team approach provides design and building capabilities from a single source from the projects inception.
In design/assist, the owner hires both State Home Construction and the architect under separate contracts. Similar to the design/build approach, SHC is brought on board early in the design phase to assist in constructability reviews, value engineering, and budgeting, to ensure the project meets all the needs of the owner without sacrificing budget or schedule.
Preconstruction and construction services:
Preconstruction services include constructability reviews, construction cost budgeting and estimating, value engineering, subcontractor prequalification, and bidding of subcontractor trades.
Construction services include project administration, cost control/changes in scope, subcontractor management, scheduling, and safety. State Home Construction is committed to proactively participating in the pre-construction phase and the managing of the construction phase with all necessary resources to ensure that the project is completed on time, at budget, and to a degree of quality exceeding expectations.
We believe that a strong start to a successful construction project begins with a well thought out and detailed construction schedule with input from all parties involved.
We put together a critical path schedule before each project begins to help eliminate foreseeable construction delays. This helps to ensure that long lead items are ordered at the beginning of each project and defines schedules so that all parties involved will know when they are required to perform their services on our project.
Proposals are well-formulated, detailed illustrations of construction cost of a specific building project. Proposals are prepared by breaking down the items of work using a standard format and determining the cost of each item.
A knowledge of building technology is essential to be able to break down a building into components in a structured way and then price the different components with applicable unit rates to derive the total cost.
With our years of experience, we provide detailed line item proposals with our bids so our customers know exactly what's included and what's not included. Knowing what's excluded can be more important than what's included.
There are assumptions on what's included based on general building practices but there are no assumptions on what is excluded. Having this spelled out can eliminated shady practices from contractors. Always find out what is included and, more importantly, what's excluded.
