Extension of the Company-Expert in the Field
With vast experience working on multi-million dollar projects with a variety of nationally-recognized general contractors, construction managers, and design-builders, we understand the myriad of ways to contract and build projects. Our professionals are here to provide useful insight and guidance to both owners and designers. We will make certain that budgets and time are maximized, leading to optimal value.
Evaluating Program, Design, and Budget
Estimating: As with the cost of the project, the estimating process must make everything including the design and program and —most relevant at this stage— the materials, means, and methods, fit within the budget and the divisional breakdowns within that. Lone Star provides a skilled estimation process with certified professionals.
Design Process Into Building While Addressing Permitting and Civil Requirements
Scheduling: Just as cost goes with estimating, the schedule has to be planned. It may sound redundant, but Lone Star excels at breaking down all components into small tasks and getting all members of the team involved. Through years of experience with complex and short time frames, as well as huge 12,000-item schedules, we know how to take you from start to finish seamlessly.
Clear Understanding Of All Products and Systems and How to Use Them
Facility efficiency and longevity should be leading considerations in early planning stages – not once the utility and repair bills begin arriving. Adherence to current practices, regardless of level of certification sought, will enable a system of checks and balances for the quality of materials, workmanship, and environment related to patrons and operators.
Built to Last and Run Efficiently
Sustainability: Lone Star is certified with the USGBC and has many LEED® Accredited Professionals that understand how to build buildings conscientiously and in harmony with the environment. But we also take that same approach with how the building is built and with what materials, and this makes a building sustainable because it is built to last.
