Estimate Cost / Refine Schedule
Pre-construction is essentially the process of building the venue in the minds of the project team and doing so repeatedly until perfect. That simply cannot be done without timely and accurate cost estimates and a fluid schedule analysis. ICON has worked with every major architect and builder in the industry and therefore has extensive knowledge of what the various building components cost and how long they take to deliver and install. ICON simply cannot be fooled by false estimates or flawed schedules.
Building Information Model (BIM) Analysis
The devil is in the detail and BIM has become a very important tool in identifying and resolving building conflicts while the drawings are still on the plan table. ICON facilitates the coordination between engineering disciplines and the communication between designers and builders. BIM is a great tool, but it loses all value if performed in a vacuum and ICON is there to ensure the necessary collaboration.
Delivering value is the true cornerstone of ICON’s work. Any project manager can deliver a quality project with an unlimited budget but ICON has proven to be unique in over-delivering in a limited budget environment. We take enormous pride when our Clients and visitors walk through our projects and express amazement over the exceptional features and quality in contrast to the modest cost.
You cannot build without a permit and you cannot obtain a permit without persistence. ICON manages the interface with building department officials and guides the design submittal through the approval process. Permitting is only difficult when it is not managed diligently.
The moment of truth. There can be no surprises and no place for finger pointing. Collectively, the project team has a promise to deliver. The GMP contract must be signed stating that the project will be completed for a guaranteed price at or below budget and will be ready for occupancy on opening night.
