We’re not your typical building consultant.
In fact, we’re not even your typical independent building consultant.
At zumBrunnen, we’ve taken the role of the independent consultant to a unique level, well beyond the role of the “drive-by” building inspector.
All of our consultants are Senior Project Managers at the top of their game. They come to zumBrunnen at a stage in their career where they want to do more – provide smart solutions, big cost savings, and in the end, a better quality building. They like the zumBrunnen approach, because of the real value it allows them to deliver for you.
5 key aspects of the zumBrunnen approach
Independent and unbiased
What is the key difference of the independent zumBrunnen building consultant? It comes down to this: The building-related decisions we help you make do not affect our bottom line. They affect only our integrity and reputation. This gives us both the freedom and responsibility to do what’s right for the building and all parties involved.
Once upon a time, general contractors were real building experts, tradesmen were craftsmen, and architects controlled design and quality. No more. General contractors are now construction managers managing subs. With unions in decline, tradesmen are not the craftsmen they once were. The primary role of the architect is to design. Which leaves the quality of your buildings at risk. The zumBrunnen Senior Project Managers possess an expert, broad-based knowledge of all aspects of the building – being built, being renovated, maturing. Individuals are held accountable, quality – that matters to your bottom line – is assured.
Facilitators and Communicators
It’s not enough to be a building expert. The zumBrunnen Senior Project Managers are also trained, skilled facilitators. They’re able to communicate and write clear-cut, detailed reports with crisp narrative. As a result, they identify defendable positions, assign accountability, draw the best ideas out of all parties, and reach optimal solutions.
Our founding principle. In 1982, John zumBrunnen started doing bank-inspection services and asked: “Since the owner is paying my fee, how can I bring value to them?” That uncompromising passion to deliver value – to the business model and the bottom line – gave birth to zumBrunnen in 1989 and endures today.
At zumBrunnen, we’re out to build relationships by building value for our clients. With our unequaled experience, an independent value-driven approach, and precise reporting, we assure you remain informed and in control of key building-related decisions.
