Q: How do you charge for your services?
A: Within the industry Construction Management fees are typically based on a percentage of project costs, while consulting work is typically based on hourly rates. At The Wakefield Company we are happy to offer the flexibility of fees based on percentages, hourly, or even a lump sum basis.
Q: What size projects do you do?
A: We do any size project that we are asked to do. We have some clients who call us when a door needs to be moved; yet we have worked on projects as large as $1.8 billion. Help with controlling cost, improving scheduling, and taming complex construction projects would be reasons to call us.
Q: Since you are a project/construction
manager, can you do my project for less cost than if I did it myself?
A: We almost always save our clients money, frequently more than our fee; however, unless we have been provided a benchmark for comparison purposes, it is often hard to quantify the net savings. In addition to cost savings, our clients tell us that they receive more value with the end product and have a greater level of satisfaction because we keep the team focused on client goals that we have helped to clarify and prioritize.
