Mitigate risk. Protect profit.
Ensure execution of the engagements.
When it comes to construction consulting, zumBrunnen facilitates the process by bringing an objective and experienced position to the table. We put our independent expertise to work to advise, facilitate and bring value and empowerment to the entire project team including lenders, investors, owners, developers, architects and contractors.
The result: We ensure profit margin protection for all parties by clarifying expectations and accountability, thereby staying on time and under budget while ensuring compliance. We bring real value to the entire team by helping deliver quality buildings with lower operating expenses.
Design, Spec and Contract Review
Our objective, problem-solving approach coupled with expertise in the design, construction, and financing processes strengthens the relationships of the project team, owner, and lender, while identifying and resolving critical issues prior to financing. This fulfills the financial team’s pre-closing due-diligence requirements, gets the project to the closing table without costly delays, and ensures a strong start – positioning the project for success.
Value to All™ Construction Monitoring
Since 1989, we’ve written the book on this unique approach to construction monitoring. zumBrunnen is skilled at facilitating and focusing the entire project team on compliance, schedule, and budget. We bring our vast building expertise to the table, but we also draw out the best ideas from all parties involved. Our clear, detailed, and objective reports are disseminated to all parties, which holds everyone accountable, initiates action, builds trust, and empowers the entire team.
Building-Focused Project Management
Since the 1960s, the cost of money has driven the need to get the shovel in the ground and the building complete as fast as possible. With this has come more failed projects, liability claims, and a major transfer of risk to the owner. zumBrunnen takes an independent, objective position at the table, where we ensure all parties are held accountable for contractual obligations. This form of objective leadership empowers the whole team to create successful projects.
“Leadership — we do not direct team members or make the decisions, we simply empower our clients to do such by ensuring them the best possible information at the right time.”
