Project Management (small and large projects)
Construction cost accounts for 60% of the overall ARV (actual retail value) of a construction project according the NAHB. For the ever budget-conscious developer, minimizing unnecessary spending on what may be the largest part of your real estate investment from ill-informed decisions becomes essential when developing a successful property.
Construction administration services provided by EDG can help you navigate construction effectively so that when changes and inspection issues occur, spending during construction remains manageable.
The architect of record already knows the design and has the ability to produce construction sketches to your contractor and inspector throughout the process to adjust details. Utilizing this service can avoid costly changes to the original design and help simply construction for the contractor, thus directly resulting in cost savings for you.
GIS / Mapping Services
Drone Surveying; from ALTA Surveys to Basic Elevations
Construction Marketing & Hyper-lapses (using 3D models)
Structure and Land 3D Modeling
Cut / Fill Measurements / Stockpile Assessments
EDG uses GIS to build data models that includes geographic layers (such as soils, geology, and vegetation), built layers (such as land use, buildings, highways, and infrastructure), and social layers (such as social data and code requirements). Linking BIM and GIS will enable designers to design in context of the site’s geographic information.
GIS data has become available as a service within existing designer workflows. Designers are able to subscribe to or access GIS information layers within software such as Autodesk’s Revit.
Drones provide construction teams with an overhead view of jobsites, materials, machinery and people. Contractors are using the autonomous flying machines to record images and videos that help optimize everything from grading plans and operations to identifying differences between as-designed and as-built site plans. Their usefulness can be enhanced with thermal cameras and other add-ons like mapping tools and GPS units.
