Construction Management

Our Construction Management services leverage the strengths of all parties involved in the project, providing you with the best and most effectively managed project plan.

Our lasting client relationships and industry reputation speak to our commitment to delivering outstanding results on time and within agreed-upon budgets.


  • The client has time to review requirements and select from various design and construction options
  • Work can be started before the design and the drawings are completed
  • There is less chance for a dispute over the costs of changes

The Cada Process

  1. Getting Started. We will arrange to meet in the place of your convenience: your home, your office or the job site. We start with an understanding of your ideas, your concerns, and your needs. During this first step, items such as your budget, timing, special needs or materials will be discussed.
  2. The Proposal and Options. At this step, we will develop a scope of work and rough budget estimates. We will present you with options that meet your requirements and advise on areas where you can save or where you should consider investing. We will ensure that the latest in construction techniques as well as material and design options are reviewed and taken into consideration with you.
  3. Starting and Completing the Project. It is essential to have a good plan from start to finish. Detailed estimates and well-documented scopes of work provide exact specifications, reference documents and dependable budgets. We will keep you involved and informed every step of your project with regular communications and reports.
  4. The Final Product. Your project is not finished until you are satisfied. Although you will have been involved throughout the project, there is always a Final Inspection. In this step, you will be guided through an inspection of the project to identify any deficiencies or incomplete items to be resolved before final sign-off.

Customer satisfaction is the most important goal throughout the entire project lifecycle.

    Ian and I are awestruck with the transformation that has occurred this week on our project. The spaces are lovely, just lovely. Linda Chapman’s design is turning out to be just what we envisioned from the drawings, and the workmanship of Clark’s team is superb. Thank you!

    At Cada Construction, our goal is for you to have as trouble-free an experience with us as possible. We do however, realize that it’s not uncommon for adjustments to be required after the construction period.  We are here to support you – long after the completion of your project.
