After an extensive career in loss prevention and risk management for architecture and engineering firms, Steve has seen one too many owners “get screwed” due to the unpredictable nature of the construction industry.
Determined to devise a solution, Steve turned his attention to solving the industry’s ‘unsolvable problem’ and developed a strategy to control the budget, schedule and quality of large-scale construction projects.
We follow a tested six-step system to take the guesswork out of construction projects.
Actuaries, architects, engineers, building experts,
and financial professionals provide an in-depth
analysis of your project’s viability.
Timing, sequencing, clash detection, procurement timelines, logistical concerns and staffing requirements are established prior to construction commencing, with your project being
virtually ‘built’ 5-6 times in a computer laboratory.
Optimising the sequencing of construction by revealing potential pitfalls dramatically reduces the number and magnitude of change orders. Everything is planned in
advance, giving greater control and predictability over the outcome.
Risk Free Construction Solution™ analyses each bid to create transparency, putting you in a stronger position of understanding the bids, bidders and their subcontractors.
Each tender is carefully examined to expose possible
loopholes and assess the contractor and its
subcontractors. Armed with an understanding of each
provider and knowledge of appropriate costs, you are
in a better position to negotiate.
This virtual sequencing is given as a formula to your contractor, who executes the construction as if it were an assembly line. This allows your project to minimize delays and additional costs associated with them. The progress of construction is monitored on a daily basis, providing greater transparency and contractor accountability.
The optimized sequencing of the Predictability
Approach™ is executed during this phase to create greater predictability of your project’s outcome.
Risk Free’s proprietary Quality Management™ strategies force greater contractor accountability.
Leveraging the required information around the submittal schedule, RFI’s and substitution requests, shifts the flow of information back to the design team, vastly improving the quality of construction.
Change is inevitable on construction projects. Risk Free Construction Solution™ gets in front of change orders by assessing the cost of change before it happens and determines the true cost of the materials and
With the help of the project’s Virtual Twin, design teams and owners have greater control and
predictability around change management,
and you can feel confident extra costs remain stable.
By creating greater predictability, Risk Free Construction Solution™ can insure your project through its
The Funding Solution™ protects owners from non-owner generated change orders, as well as other unexpected costs that could disrupt the construction process.
As a result, lenders are less concerned about the
unpredictable nature of your project.
At the completion of your project, your CM/general contractor and subcontractors are assessed to
understand the performance of the company
and its people.
This puts you in a stronger position to select a
contractor and its subs on your next project.
Reduce the risk of budget and timeline blowouts on your construction projects.
Have greater control over the construction process, and stop hemorrhaging cash during construction.
Create project clarity to improve your profitability and reputation.
