Our Services

We believe in placing a strong emphasis on pre-construction communication that will lead to a successful construction project. We know that performing the cost estimating, value analysis, and constructability reviews as a member of the team will result in an efficient design that will provide cost within the Owner’s budget. The result of this effort is lower Owner’s risk and a reduced opportunity for surprises on the project.

Management of the project continues to involve the active participation of the Owner/Architect/Contractor team, from project mobilization to Owner occupancy. Meetings will be held with the project team on-site to coordinate design and schedule on a regular time basis.

Purchased services from subcontractors and vendors will comprise the major total of project cost. With this in mind, our company will competitively bid to pre-qualified companies and award contracts and/or purchase orders at the lowest price consistent with the required level of quality and time of completion. Our company has established strong relationships with leading subcontractors and suppliers in all market areas. Our subcontracts clearly define the scope of work required, and our accounting procedures assure accurate and timely payment.

When the subcontractor bids are received and the apparent low bidders are determined, our company will ensure that:

  • The scopes of the subcontracts are complete, clear, and well-defined
  • Scheduling commitments are realistic, reliable, and comply with the agreed upon schedule
  • All substitution and cost saving alternatives are fully investigated and evaluated
  • The apparent low bidder is financially capable

Once these tasks have been completed, recommendations for award will be submitted to the Owner for approval. Upon review and approval, the subcontract will be awarded.

An accurate construction schedule is one of the most basic and important tools for successful project management. Upon construction commencement, the schedule will be expanded to reflect milestones, management actions, key approvals, and inspections. The schedule will be the principal tool for coordinating and scheduling subcontractors and vendors, and for informing the Owner/Architect/Contractor team of progress. In addition, the schedule will be monitored and updated at least monthly to assure accuracy.
To assure that the Project Manager is kept fully current on present and projected costs on a project, utilize our cost control system. Payments for all labor, material, equipment rental, and subcontracts are processed within the system and all costs to date are reported by line item. A Contractors Statement is prepared monthly showing the current adjustment project cost. The monthly statements are reviewed to insure that spec of the work is proceeding on schedule and within budget.

Financial management of the project will be handled by the accounting staff under direction of the Project Manager. All cost information is processed through the system to provide the most accurate reporting and payment control disciplines.

Lien releases are required from all subcontractors and vendors to guarantee that all obligations against any account are known and properly satisfied. Copies of invoices with payment verification are recorded and filed for future use and audit.

After establishing the project cost, Owner Change Orders will be prepared only if there is a change in the work. When a specific change is required by the Owner or the Architect that appears to increase or decrease the cost of the work and/or time of completion, the Contractor will:

  • Work with the Architect in the preparation of the required modifications and supplements to the plans and specifications
  • Request, receive, and evaluate all subcontractor supplier change requests and proposals
  • Prepare and submit an estimate of the total cost of the change and time impact if applicable
  • Purchase and complete the change in the work, and modify the construction schedule if applicable, once approved
Once the plans and specifications are complete and the contract executed, our staff become the key to successful completion of the project. Project managers are assigned to each client so that the client has a clear and direct point of contact for all phases of the project at his/her disposal. The Project Manager along with the Project Superintendent will work expeditiously to complete the project within the cost and time frame established during pre-construction.

The Project Manager, as the primary representative of E. Anthony, Inc., will host all project meetings on-site to review key aspects of construction and the current project status.

The Project Manager will work with the Owner and Architect on all aspects of job completion for close-out. This will include all project punch lists, securing final occupancy approvals and certificates, and submissions of all warranties with any and all equipment Operations Manuals.
