Binswanger Binswanger






About Us


Binswanger's project management group is unique in that it truly provides comprehensive service. This gives clients the flexibility to choose from a long list of management services to suit their individual needs.

Each member of the group has the expertise to provide the owner/user with a single source from which an entire project can be coordinated.

Advantages to the single-source approach :
 

  • The Project Management Group is able to control costs more efficiently. We manage the hard costs – the bricks and sticks – but pride ourselves on soft-cost management.  projectmanwheel_graphic.jpg
  • Soft costs – expenses such as permits, approvals, insurance and professionals – are often unanticipated and can represent up to thirty percent of the total project cost.
  • The Project Management Group is free of conflicts of interest, unrelated to the professionals it manages and makes decisions solely to benefit the client and the project.
  • Inevitable disputes are characteristic to the construction process, and we are anxious to assume the responsibilities of coordinator and mediator. We have an extensive background balancing form vs. function, cost vs. aesthetics, architectural design vs. construction restraints, and time vs. money.
  • Extensive experience in development, finance, construction management, engineering and financial reporting:
    • A breadth of experience crossing many real estate disciplines.
    • A cohesive unit that prides itself on its Quality Management Program, an internal program that ensures the client is thoroughly informed and in control of its project.
    • “Open Book” instant access to all project data utilizing our computerized tracking system and personal contact/reporting guidelines established for all staff members.
