Professional Construction Documentation & Management 

Tyler Grant Construction Consulting works with architects to provide the necessary scope of project documentation required for the bids and estimates, select contractors, materials, and manage construction contracts and processes.   

Using state of the art and integrated tools and communication platforms, we keep all parties up-to-date on budgets, timelines, and milestones of the construction process.  

The Problem: Construction Documentation

Plans, elevations, and other drawings are need to be refined to produce a set of drawings and specifications that will be used to erect the building.

The Solution: TGCC Permit Ready 

TGCC works with the architect and the client to select appropriate materials and finishes to ensure a high-quality final building. TGCC will coordinate with other design consultants, such as civil, structural, or mechanical engineers, that may be needed for the project, depending on its complexity or as required by law. The drawings and specifications represent a legal definition of what the contractor will build, along with other documents produced during bidding, known collectively as the contract documents. A complete, full set of construction documents helps minimize unforeseen problems and cost overruns during construction

The Problem: Bidding/Contract Negotiation

Soliciting and evaluation bids from contractors

The Solution: TGCC Vetted Estimates 

TGCC acts as the agent of the owner/client by soliciting bids from contractors. TGCC advises the client in his or her decision process selecting a contractor. Once signed, the contract documents define the project. TGCC help the client break down the submitted bids to make a true apples-to-apples comparison so that the client receives the best value and quality during construction.

The Problem: Construction Contract Administration.

Soliciting and evaluation bids from contractors

The Solution: TGCC Vetted Estimates 

TGCC serves as the agent of the architect and the client during construction to make sure the contractor and subcontractor are building faithfully to the drawings and specifications. It is not uncommon for unsupervised contractors to ignore drawings or to cut corners in order to increase their profits. TGCC's  fee is predetermined, so we can act an independent, unbiased observer and advocate for the client when acting as a construction contract administrator. TGCC can also can provide the following important professional services during construction contract administration:

  • Provide written responses and additional detailed drawings to address questions brought up by contractor.
    Resolve any conflicts found between drawings and the specifications.
  • Approve changes to the plans requested by the contactor, in effect mediating changes to the contract between the client and the contractor. These can arise in response to hidden problems in an existing building, or needed changes in the construction schedule or budget.
  • Approve pay applications by the contractor, to ensure that only appropriate construction expenses are reimbursed by the client.
  • Negotiate any disputes between the contractor and the client that may arise and propose solutions to problems.
  • Inspect the building during a final walk-through to ensure that the building is complete enough to be occupied, and follow-up with contactor to address any remaining deficiencies.
    Having an architect provide construction contract administration for your project creates value for you because the architect will advocate for your interests in terms time, money, and quality control during construction.
