“I have had experiences in the past where, as the Owner Rep, it was evident that the construction partner did not see me as an ally. But from day one at Cross, I felt I was part of the JE Dunn team. Your team’s level of professionalism, transparency, customer services, and perseverance to always follow up on every single question or concern created a collaborative atmosphere. Your team re-set the bar in terms of what I should expect from design-build partners on all my future projects.”
There is no changing the start date of a new school year. Even though JE Dunn and Clark Nexsen & Studio Architecture were onboarded later than the owner intended, the path to completion held. This project was a true testament to the effectiveness of design-build coupled with lean building practices. All work activities were measured against planned percent complete and reviewed daily with leaders of each trade partner involved in the scope of work. This afforded the design-build team real time schedule controls and corrective actions to maintain deliverables throughout the duration of the project.
