Project Management Services

Building owners have seen a dramatic rise in the complexity and liability of construction projects over the past 30 years. In step with expanding technology and safety demands, the regulatory sector has imposed ever-changing requirements for approvals, training and licenses – before, during and after construction projects. Legal and insurance matters have brought additional expenses and complexities to bear.

At Integrated, our track record demonstrates that proper project planning can eliminate most of the pitfalls that drive projects over schedule and above budget. Our approach is to work seamlessly with owners in planning their capital projects. We become an extension of the owner’s staff when projects need to be planned and built. We succeed by establishing realistic milestones & deadlines and focus on each project’s critical path.
