Construction Management as Agent & as Constructor

Our site managers do more than move a mobile office to your site—they move their hearts and souls, too. Their only job during construction is to manage your project, so you can be assured your project is getting all the attention it deserves. The site manager is the point person for you and all the contractors, keeping everyone informed and the project running smoothly.

Innovative Technology Elevating our project safety, efficiency, and productivity

During Skillman’s 40 years as leaders in construction management, we’ve seen our fair share of new technologies. Our personal experience, coupled with our use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), enables us to walk you through a complete model of your building project before a shovel even hits the dirt. This model provides a better and more accurate way to estimate, plan, coordinate, and document your project from start to finish.

Services Provided
  • Preplanning for site logistics to ensure a clear and defined plan of execution for the project
  • Coordinating the project according to the model to eliminate unnecessary conflicts and limit change orders
  • Conduct MEP coordination and clash detection processes to minimize reconstruction work in the field
  • Documentation of existing and as-built conditions in the model to ensure the Owner has the most up-to-date and accurate information available
  • Providing the Owner with easy and accurate data for servicing equipment by embedding the operations and maintenance information in to the model
