The right team for your job
With Harris & Associates, you get a complete team of experienced professionals, including program and construction managers, architects, engineers and building program specialists, all eager to solve the most complex challenges.
We approach program and construction management from your standpoint, as your representative, with your goals as our only priority.
Moving programs from concept to construction requires extraordinary focus and highly specialized skills. Doing so within a set budget and timeline is a feat few can accomplish consistently.
Harris manages the efforts of the entire program team. With an eye on every detail, we guide processes to ensure they run smoothly and that projects finish as and when they should. We focus on building consensus among all key players—keeping owners, service providers and contractors aligned with frequent communication. And we'll keep you as involved as you want to be throughout each project.
Guarding Your Bottom Line
Harris doesn’t benefit from change orders—we benefit from your project success. You and your constituents alike will appreciate our sound decision-making and fiscal accountability. We stay within budget by creating realistic estimates at the outset of design and by employing cost control techniques to identify potential cost impacts prior to bid. Having architects and engineers in-house makes all the difference.
Every Minute Matters
We also develop schedules that incorporate all facets of a program and provide a timeline for decisions, design phases, agency plan reviews, bid and award, equipment procurement, phasing, construction, move-in and project closeout. Our comprehensive program view shows how all tasks relate to the program completion and the possible effects of any delays.
