“Colantonio was thoughtful with their construction management plan. They reviewed the construction documents and evaluated existing conditions thoroughly before any demolition or new construction took place so they could flag any potential issues. They gave themselves time to look ahead, think about what would work, and work with our team to come up with a great solution to any problems. Their thoughtful approach to the job helped keep cost changes to a minimum. They were also extremely fair in their pricing to address any changes in work that resulted from unforeseen conditions.”

Firsthand experience gives us an edge on minimizing costs, controlling schedules, and ensuring the highest quality of work on their projects.

During preconstruction, self-performance allows us to provide more accurate cost estimates, properly identify cost exposures, and provide more thorough constructability reviews, which helps avoid costly surprises down the line.

During construction, we have the flexibility to schedule the work as needed or even step in and take over from a subcontractor should issues arise, ensuring your project stays on schedule. And while self-performance is not the right call for every project, our knowledge and experience allow us to assess subcontractors’ work and hold them accountable in terms of staffing, scheduling, safety, estimating, and quality.

Colantonio only bids self-perform work to the project owner through a competitive bid process.

Deep experience to expertly lay the groundwork for your project.

Tangible benefits of scheduling flexibility and highest standards of quality.

Performing quality concrete work, the foundation of a successful project.
