WE PROVIDE LEADERSHIP. We have managed projects utilizing the most common contractor construction delivery methods including Guaranteed Maximum Price Contracts, Lump Sum Contracts, Design Build and Cost-Plus Contracts. Our teams’ executive level, large scale project experience in the construction industry affords your project great insight and practical ways to control project costs.

COMPLEX SCHEDULES

Complex projects in active occupied facilities is a normal course of business for Mark Allan & Associates. Working with the contractor to break down the schedule into achievable milestones, regular formal reviews of the project status, and focused attention on recovery schedules when necessary are all part of the MA&A way. We understand how critical it is to effectively and directly communicate the
schedule and will work to provide you with consistent and predictable results.

Infrastructure, Roadways. As well as facilities that are less pertinent: Stadiums’ and Arenas’, Airport facilities, and Industrial Plants. Together our keen experience and historical data can provide your company with planning tools to better understand market conditions and opportunities.

CONSULTANT MANAGEMENT

Direct, clear and concise communications with consultants is critical to effectively manage their output.
Setting priorities to construction drawing areas, long lead items, submittals, and RFI’s while allowing the design team enough time to properly respond ensures harmony between what the project needs to continue to move forward and the design. Reviewing and formally discussing design and scope creep are also critical factors to ensure the design conforms to cost model.
