Steve Whitehorn’s book is revolutionary and transformative. It outlines how to contain and manage risk while letting designers and contractors do what they do best-design and build buildings. It is a must-read for any owner seriously considering designing and constructing a building or for those who are part of the process (Architects, Engineers and Builders). Steve’s insights and solution could not have come soon enough for a burdensome, inefficient, costly, adversarial and litigious industry.
In over 30years, I have never come across anyone more knowledgeable of the industry processes and risk management than Stephen Whitehorn. He is able to see the big picture and also drill down to the granular details. Most importantly, Steve is someone I completely trust.
It’s a crowded marketplace for tech solutions to construction issues, mostly oriented toward increasing contractor profitability. You are on to something if you can do it from the owner’s side.
The part about the submittal schedule rings very true, as does the lack of planning. Halfway through month 3 of a 4-month schedule, I had a contractor announce he needed 3 more months because of the architect… but he still has not delivered us up a submittal schedule. Affordable housing projects often have contractors that depend on repeat business from a small group of owners who all know each other. Even with an ostensibly “open book” approach we still hear “the sub didn’t bid it that way” and end up with added cost.
I look forward to seeing how your project develops. The non-profit housing sector may be a viable market for it as certainty is very valuable - once funding is granted, that is usually all there is
Steve is a trusted adviser and I have sought his sage wisdom on a regular basis for my entire career. He and his team are always striving to ensure we have a sound platform to practice from. Our collaboration is one of the best aspects of our business and a substantive factor in our success.
Thanks for everything you've done so far. I'm really looking forward to doing business with someone that acts like he's on my team, and not a spectator. You were highly recommended to me, and I'm very happy in my choice in choosing you and your firm. I've conversed with you in the last four weeks more than I've conversed with my previous agent in at least the last four years! Your candor, professionalism, knowledge, and passion are exceptional, and these traits do not go unnoticed with me, your new client.
I want to recommend you to as many of my fellow colleagues and design professionals as I can. Again, many thanks
After working with Steve for many years, we would not hesitate to recommend any of our colleagues to contact him for pointed and timely advice.”
Steve Whitehorn has brilliantly represented our business for nearly a decade. He has sought optimum solutions for our practice and advised us on specialty products necessary for multi-billion-dollar projects. More than a broker, he advises on the firm's internal risk management programs and is a keen observer of overall business methods, offering cogent advice beyond expectation. Steve is extremely pro-active in our relationship, continually inquiring of future direction, so as to best anticipate, and therefore support our needs. As Managing Principal, I have referred Steve to numerous firms in our market space.
Steve Whitehorn is more like a committed team member than a consultant. He always makes us feel our overall success as a firm is of prime importance to him and he is always available and ready with a creative and helpful way to answer to any question we throw his way.
