Construction Company Philosophy and Approach
Build the most beautiful highest quality and highest performing green energy efficient homes on time and on budget.
Our experience in Mexico has shown that there is a market for custom homes designed and built to the standards and delivered with the level of service that we provide in the United States. We have brought to Mexico our extensive management systems that have successfully delivered homes in the very demanding Southern California market. These systems for construction management include Project Accounting, Project Scheduling http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project/default.aspx and Procurement systems for the efficient and timely delivery of goods and services to get a building delivered on time and on budget. We use Pro-Core www.procore.com as a construction communication tool to facilitate and streamline the building process. This also allows for full time customer access to daily updated information on the status of their project. This is particularly important for our customers who are located all over the U.S. and Canada.
Construction Management: As we do in the United States, in Mexico our company operates under a Construction Management mode of operation. Our Mexican staff is comprised of Finton Associates trained Construction Managers, Estimators, Procurement managers and Superintendents who oversee a qualified and selected group of Mexican sub-contractors who competitively bid to provide goods and services for the construction of our projects.
Cost Management: We provide full detailed budgets with full accounting transparency in delineating all the sub contracts, specifications and deliverables for each project.
