Mitigate risk. Protect profit.
Ensure execution of the engagements.
It’s not until many of our clients bring zumBrunnen to the project team that they realize what’s missing without us.
It boils down to this: We bring a level of building and management expertise that most of today’s architects, general contractors, project management or owner rep firms do not possess. We put that expertise to work from an objective position -- to advise, facilitate, and bring value and empowerment to the entire project team -- we provide leadership by earning your trust.
The result: Profit margin protection to all parties by clarifying expectations and accountability, thereby staying on time and under budget while ensuring compliance. Real value to owners and their investors who want quality buildings and lower operating expenses.
Our Core Construction Consulting Services -
For Owners, Developers, Lenders or Investors
Design, Spec and Contract Review
Our objective, problem-solving approach coupled with expertise in the design, construction, and financing processes strengthens the relationships of the project team, owner, and lender, while identifying and resolving critical issues. This fulfills your lender pre-closing due-diligence requirements, gets your project to the closing table without costly delays, and ensures a strong start - positioning you for success.
Value to All™ Construction Monitoring
Since 1989, we’ve written the book on this unique approach to construction monitoring. zumBrunnen is skilled at facilitating and focusing the entire project team on compliance, schedule, and budget. We bring our own vast building expertise to the table, but we also draw out the best ideas from all parties involved. Our clear, detailed, and objective reports can be disseminated to all parties. Which holds parties accountable, initiates action, builds trust, and empowers your team -- a real formula for success.
Building-Focused Project Management
Since the 1960s, the cost of money has driven the need to get the shovel in the ground and the building complete as fast as possible. With this has come more failed projects, liability claims, and a major transfer of risk to the owner. zumBrunnen takes an independent, objective position at the table, where we first see to it that all responsibilities are accounted for, and then ensure full execution of contracts by empowering your team through leadership.
“Leadership -- we do not direct team members or make the decisions, we simply empower our clients to do such by ensuring them the best possible information at the right time.”
