Fractured construction projects break the budget

Healthcare leaders are committed to providing the highest quality of care. Don’t sacrifice your standards by contracting separate design and construction companies for your acute care facility. It causes coordination, communication and collaboration issues. You’re more likely to deal with supply chain constraints, as well as design and estimate errors. And that leads to problems with your overall budget, schedule and scope.

Construction projects are some of the most expensive investments healthcare leaders will make in their careers. These projects demand careful supervision to prevent budget bloat. Roughly 85% of projects overspend — by an average of 28%. And only 31% of projects come within even 10% of budget. That’s a big bite out of your bottom line.

And time is money, too. Large or complex projects often take 20% longer to complete than planned when you’re working with separate design and construction companies. Just 25% of projects get wrapped within 10% of their original deadlines.

The Korte Company’s second opinion process

Give us your existing drawings, pricing, schedules and any other project information. If we agree on the plans, we’ll apply our Hybrid Design and Construction model to create a proposal. It will include an alternative detailed schematic design with detailed specifications, a schedule and a Guaranteed Lump Sum Price proposal.

All that at no cost or commitment from the owner. This process usually only takes two or three weeks. We leverage all the prior A&E firm’s work, so you don’t waste anything you’ve already paid for.

All second opinion actions occur in parallel with existing schedules to avoid delays. If you think our detailed proposal fits the bill, we’ll work through design development to add additional details, at no extra cost or commitment. The Korte Company will assume full control of the project after ownership signs off. And we often adhere to the original schedule using our fast-track construction capabilities.

But if you decide to stay with their existing team, there’s no cost, commitment or delays. At the very least, you’ll walk away with some good ideas and price estimates.
