we take the surprises out
of complex construction projects.

  • pre-closing document review

    We review design documents, construction contracts, and dozens of other documents necessary prior to financial closing. zumBrunnen offers over 30 years of experience with our expert construction consultants. We make sure to approach each project with a 3rd party, unbiased view to ensure the utmost accurate risk management solutions. Our Pre-Closing Document Review process entails documented detailed reporting and recommendations, saving your team time and money in the end.

  • 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 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.

we don’t offer your typical construction consulting services.

Each team member of construction monitoring consultants focuses on providing smart solutions, offering big cost savings, and assisting clients in realizing the benefits of better quality buildings.
