- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We prefer to work under a negotiated fee structure, but can and have participated in a variety of contract arrangements. Size of the fee depends on the size of the job, and our day-to-day expected involvement in the project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We will normally start with a phone or email consultation to confirm where the project is in terms of location, timeline, scope, budget, and other basic details. From there, we will either confirm our interest in bidding the job, request more details, or decline to bid. For small jobs with very clearly defined scope, we will sometimes then go directly to pricing and submission of a bid. However, typically we will host a pre-pricing meeting here at our office to meet the Customer(s) and go over the details of the project, as well as any project documents (drawings, sketches, permits, etc.) which are currently available, then discuss next steps from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We are a Class 'A' Commercial General Contractor, currently licensed in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. Our firm consists of multi-year contracting professionals (our field personnel boast an average of nearly 20 years' industry experience) and a professional engineer. Owner Jim Gardiner is also a certified PMP (Project Management Professional) and a LEED Green Builder.
