General Contracting

Planning and Design Assist

Through CJR’s Planning and Design Assist services we try and bridge the gap between Architects and Contractors through project planning, design, engineering and execution.  As an AEC firm and PACE Contractor we leverage our experience and expertise to turn your vision into defined project goals.  Our team provide design assistance, value engineering and constructability and interdisciplinary review feedback during design to limit risk in construction.   CJR is selected early in the process, possibly even before the architect is on board. We work alongside the architect and owner assisting them with cost-effective decisions regarding construction-related issues like materials, scheduling and budgets. The architect and CJR each contract directly with the owner, creating a “three-legged stool” of accountability to one another.

  • Contractor is retained at conceptual phase
  • Assist the Architect, Engineer in design and construction documents
  • Reduce risk by establishing baseline metric for budget, schedule and quality
  • Save cost using lean management techniques
