Houston Builders – Project Management Houston

As one of a select few of Houston builders that offer their services in project management Houston, Marwood Construction is uniquely qualified to work as a trusted advisor and quality construction expert in the building of fine luxury homes. Marwood Construction project management services functions as the construction executive for the building process representing the owner.

We are the catalyst in the team building process orchestrating the architect, engineer, decorator and site supervisor in the interest of the owner. This service discipline is more of a trusted adviser role than the typical Houston builders bid awarding / negotiation operating model in the new home construction process. As the project management Houston professional consultant, we keep the owner apprised of project progress and developments. One of our key responsibilities is to plan for upcoming matters that require the owners decisions in the interest of expediting the project schedule.

The project management consultants’ Principal obligation is to represent the owner’s interest in all affairs associated with a new home construction of specified property. This is accomplished by our construction services team by facilitating a defined strategic project direction and providing organization to the overall building process. The owner maintains financial control for the cost of construction and relies on the project management Houston team to assure work is in compliance with the drawings, specifications and applicable building codes. The owner also relies on this experienced advice pertaining to constructability concerns, product service reliability and the general business matters of the project.

The distinctive difference between project management and construction management is the distribution of payments, administration of vendors and the subcontractors documents. Project management Houston responsibilities typically include all aspects of a construction project. This may include additional commercial and/or financial affairs, payment reconciliations of the construction budget. Whereas the construction management works as an adviser to the architect and owner, representing the day-to-day activities of the new home construction activities and not so much of the business agent affairs.

Our project management Houston services were created for distinctive clients who might require a higher standard of quality control in the new home construction process that they are not confident in receiving from Houston builders. In addition, this service assist those rare home building clients who would prefer to be hands on in the Houston builders process of designing and building their home. This service supports the lack of a full technical ability and administers the mass amount of documentation and day-to-day challenges of a new home construction project.
