Project Management

Our construction professionals add value to the building process by providing input on constructability, scheduling, cost control, quality control, and closeout.


Our team brings a realistic approach to managing project schedules. We look ahead to anticipate obstacles, suggest solutions, and work the schedule to deliver your project on time. Our hands-on schedule management services consist of:

  • Creating and maintaining master project schedules
  • Reviewing and approving the initial construction schedule from the general contractor
  • Monitoring the schedule progress and recommending adjustments as necessary
  • Collaborating with design and construction teams to keep the project on track


Staying within budget is a key factor in the success of any project. Our team strives to maximize value while…

  • Maintaining the overall project budget
  • Managing change to ensure minimal cost and delay to the project
  • Reviewing vendors' monthly invoices and approving or negotiating as necessary
  • Reviewing bids and pricing, and recommending approval as necessary


We conduct regular quality-control inspections of the construction as it progresses and work with the architect to ensure that our clients receive proper value for their investment. Quality control at regular intervals in the construction phase consists of:

  • Regular on-site review of construction in progress
  • Monitoring updates of the as-built plans by the general contractor during the course of construction
  • Reviewing testing inspection reports during construction
  • Where applicable, working with the commissioning agent in the development of the commissioning plan as well as monitoring the results of the commissioning
  • Conducting a punchlist inspection, compiling the punchlist, and reviewing it with the general contractor upon substantial completion of project


Our job is to keep all team members working together to a common end. During the course of construction we will be…

  • Meeting regularly with the general contractor and architect to review progress and any outstanding issues
  • Reviewing and tracking preliminary lien notices and lien releases
  • Reviewing insurance certificates for compliance
  • Providing a monthly status report on the project



"Without hesitation I can say that hiring Earl Consulting was by far the best decision we ever made from a development standpoint. ECC is easy to work with and we can be as engaged as we like to be or let them handle the details for us. My only request is that they never get too busy to help us out on our projects because I'm not sure what we would do without them!"
