CGA Project Management conducts a stakeholder review of all project documents at specific milestone or junctures in the design process, typically schematic, design development, bidding, construction and post-occupancy phases. CGA uses an iterative process to uncover potential problems. Our thorough value engineering strategies, help resolve critical issues, thereby avoiding hidden costs and lengthy delays.
