Adohr accounting, estimating, scheduling, and construction team specialists in QuickBooks, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Project.
Being able to accurately estimate costs early in project development, making a commitment to stick to the established budget, and closely monitoring each step of construction to ensure compliance is both an art and a science in which Adohr excels. Our estimate for each project is initially developed by creating a project-specific Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that details each element of the entire scope of work for the project. By utilizing a wide array of resources we are able to confidently validate specific elements of the budget based on:
- Involvement of our Project Manager or Project Team, from project award and preconstruction through final walk-through and project close-out, will establish ownership and responsibility of all costs developed early in project development, which will ultimately require delivering on our promises
- Incorporating historical cost data from similar completed projects
- Collaborating with subcontractors to confirm current price points on labor and materials
An important ingredient in Adohr’s ability to successfully deliver a project has been our consistent utilization of Critical Path Method (CPM) schedules to plan, manage and control the project. Our schedules typically include key milestones, project interfaces, work scope and deliverables for all phases of project development. Adohr uses Microsoft Project for preparation of all construction schedules. Preparation of schedules will include the entire project and biweekly updates that will be issued at the weekly or bi-weekly project meetings. In addition, Adohr will incorporate both equipment and vendors as necessary to assist the Owner with fully-integrated schedules.
