Providing construction and project management services to a wide variety of public and private sector clients has accounted for a large percentage of our work in the past 30 years since the company was started by David Goto in 1988. With capabilities that carry a project from inception to completion, we play an important role in assuring that every phase of the project is effectively controlled. Through planning, design, construction and move-in, the focus is on achieving the owner's goals for cost, schedule and quality. Finishing projects on schedule, within budget, and exceeding the Owner's expectation, whether it's a $50,000 or a $50 million project is the total objective.

Our commitment is to provide the highest quality construction services to clients that will help them achieve the goals of their construction program in an ethical, creative and cost-effective manner.


Construction and Project Management

Focusing on the management of the planning and design phase, bid and award phase, construction phase, and closeout through occupancy of a single project. Services may include:

  • Project definition
  • Development of a realistic and complete budget
  • Review of documents for coordination and constructability
  • Schedule of planning and design activities
  • Management of information systems
  • Optimizing strategies for purchasing and phasing construction
  • Soliciting bidders to ensure competitive prices
  • Schedule control
  • Cost control
  • Quality control
  • Commissioning
  • Closeout and document turnover
  • Transition to occupancy
  • Post-occupancy evaluation

Value Engineering

Value engineering analysis focuses on meeting the functional requirements of the building at an acceptable cost while maintaining the highest quality possible. Each building system and its components are analyzed for adequacy, efficiency, and length of useful life and cost. Life cycle costs are established for alternative systems and components. Our strengths in securing various engineering disciplines for this review, combined with daily hands on experience, can be a significant benefit to the owner.

Value engineering analysis is divided into four phases: information exploration, analysis, planning and implementation. The information phases define who the owner/users are and their needs and wants. The exploration phase is pursued to generate as many ideas as possible utilizing a brainstorming approach. These ideas are then evaluated and ranked for feasibility based upon critical criteria. The last phase, planning and implementation takes the best ideas and provides an in-depth review for evaluation by the decision-makers for final selection.

Typical value engineering sessions would include:

  • Identification of needs and definition of function
  • Creative solutions to meeting the basic needs or function
  • Developing the costs for the various alternative solutions
  • Evaluation and ranking of the various solutions based on project criteria, feasibility of implementation and cost
  • Selection of the optimum solution and implementation
  • Analysis of cost is not limited to the first costs, such as basic construction costs but should include all costs, such as operation cost, maintenance cost, life expectancy, and all other aspects of life cycle cost. For example, using a material or system that is 80% of the cost of an alternate but will last just five years, rather than twenty years, may not be a prudent decision. Consideration of life cycle costs can actually result in project solutions that increase the first cost of the projects but are in the owner's best long-term interest.
