Successful projects require precise planning and attention to detail at every step; from design and constructability reviews, to the preparation of detailed construction budgets and schedules, to on-site supervision, project management, quality control and safety oversight during construction.

Pacific Empire Builders provides a full spectrum of construction services to lend expertise wherever needed.

Estimating/Budget Preparation:  Early in the development process, Pacific Empire Builders principals and experienced project managers work with our developer clients to prepare construction cost estimates and establish a detailed hard cost budget.  Identifying budget busts early in the design process allows the client time to direct the design team to make changes that will bring the construction budget in line with the developer’s pro forma.

Constructability & Design Reviews/Value Engineering:  The best time to identify cost saving options is prior to construction during the design phase.  Pacific Empire Builders works with the client and design team to review the constructability of the project and to provide feedback regarding material selection and construction details that will reduce costs while maintaining the desired aesthetic and quality objectives.  Value engineering begins in the design phase and then continues throughout the life of the project.  Our company philosophy stems from the understanding that savings from construction costs flow down to our client’s bottom line.

Planning/Scheduling:  Time is money.  Our project managers and superintendents develop a project critical path method schedule early in the conceptual design stage.  Once approved by the client, this schedule becomes the baseline project schedule used throughout construction to monitor progress.  Careful planning and scheduling prior to construction commencement is critical to delivering projects on time to meet our clients development goals.

Pacific Empire Builders is utilized by Serrano Development Group and other clients to perform a range of construction management services, including but not limited to:

• Construction contract bid and award including contract negotiations
• Periodic progress review meetings to monitor cost and schedule performance
• Site meetings to assess quality and jobsite safety
• Contractor payment review and processing
• Closeout and document turnover

At Pacific Empire Builders we think like owners and developers, not just builders.  Our general contracting style reflects this philosophy and commitment to minimize the inherent conflict created by the more traditional owner-builder roles.  We strive to maximize the quality of construction for our clients and to minimize the cost and inefficiency associated with unnecessary change orders.  Our general contracting services begin with pre-construction and commonly extend beyond construction completion to assistance with property management after the warranty period has expired.  At Pacific Empire Builders we build more than multi-family, industrial, and retail properties, we build relationships based on our desire to serve our clients needs long into the future.
