Magnum Builders provided preconstruction and construction services for this project. Initial estimating in the pre-schematic phase alerted the Owner to a needed revision to their previous budget. Magnum provided multiple scope options that allowed the City of Venice, Sarasota County and Other contributing agencies to determine a final direction for this project. This allowed the project to move forward and meet the project budget. Magnum completed the construction at a $56,000 savings to the owner under the GMP budget and approved changes.
Magnum constructed this project during the worst material shortage period in recent Florida construction history. We revised roof insulation products and tile selections to meet the project schedule. An unanticipated replacement of all of the roof deck due to deteriorated metal was encountered requiring additional scope of work that could delay the project significantly. Magnum revised the sequence of installation to allow more trades to perform simultaneous work and, thus, limit the impact of the increased scope of work.
