& Jones, Inc.
Dunn & Jones's
operations include general contracting, construction management and
design/build. Historically, the firm has developed a reputation for
on-time, within-budget performance. This tradition has aided in maintaining
Jones's position as an industry leader.
One of Dunn
& Jones's primary strengths as a results-oriented builder
is its "people"
resource. The firm represents a management team committed to maintaining
a leadership position in the construction industry and a legacy of successful
work. That commitment is supported by a staff of highly qualified individuals
who view each project as an opportunity to demonstrate professional
The building industry has
changed significantly in recent years. The construction process is more
complex and technically demanding of the Architect, Contractor and even
the Owner. Today's environment requires the successful integration of
numerous sequential activities.
Expertise in such areas
as project feasibility analysis, value engineering, scheduling and cost
control have become fundamental to project success. Contractor input
during design phases has been established as an effective means of controlling
cost, time and quality.
We feel the expertise provided
during the design phase can make the greatest contribution to cost-effectiveness.
However, construction operations have been responsible for Dunn
& Jones's respected reputation as a successful, innovative
We believe an owner is best
served by a team approach where the Architect, Contractor and Owner
work together to develop the most effective response to a construction
need. Decisions made early in the design process have the greatest impact
on cost and functionalism. A contractor's input during this phase can
be extremely valuable by providing the design professional with up-to-date
cost information, construction review and value engineering.
On occasion, we are asked to provide certain services prior to the start of design. Pre-design services may include site evaluation, recommendations and cost information during feasibility studies, review of function needs to determine project scope and assistance in developing the project budget.
The Dunn & Jones's organization is well-suited to the task of helping an owner with various preconstruction activities-from inception and project initiation through the entire design phase.
Once the Architect has been
selected, members of Dunn & Jones's staff will
function as a resource to the project team by providing advice on site
use and improvements; recommendations concerning construction feasibility
and alternate systems and materials, preliminary budgets and areas of
potential cost savings.
Working closely with the
Architect and other consultants, Dunn & Jones's
scheduling staff will help refine the project schedule, coordinating
and integrating the design efforts with construction operations. As
the design progresses, we will update the schedule periodically to reflect
A preliminary, or conceptual,
estimate detailed by categories of work, will be prepared at the end
of Schematic Design. Members of our estimating staff are among the industry's
best, and much of our success has been built on their capabilities.
This estimate begins the construction cost containment process and will
become the benchmark from which costs are monitored throughout the design
phase. Dunn & Jones will update, refine the budget and presented
to the owner for approval at each major design phase. We will bring
changes in the line items to the attention of team members and recommendations
for appropriated corrective action will be made.
Dunn & Jones's role during construction is to deliver the project within the specified time, with quality results. Performance during this phase of a project is popular as a measurement of the Contractor's real talent. Although we feel the expertise provided during the design phase can make the greatest contribution to cost-effectiveness, construction operations have been responsible for Dunn & Jones respected reputation as a successful, innovative construction firm.
During construction we manage the work as though we are building for ourselves. With the critical eye of a developer, our field staff views each project as an opportunity to make a professional statement.
A qualified staff provides
continuous inspection and surveillance of the work. As required by each
project, specified portions of the work are inspected, tested and documented
for review. Dunn & Jones's project management staff
works to insure that the quality of materials and workmanship called
for in the contract documents are maintained.
During the construction,
we provide the Owner with periodic progress reports in the form of updated
schedules, activity listing and monthly progress payment schedules,
activity listing and monthly progress payment estimates. Any changes
to the schedule resulting from approved change orders are reflected
in the schedule update.
Dunn & Jones staff and the owners' representatives verify progress claimed by subcontractors before being entered in the progress billing system. Monthly billings are furnished to the level of detail and substantiation necessary to meet the requirements of the owner.
All records for the project including correspondence, billings and record drawings are maintained. in the job site office. The field supervision staff maintains as-built drawings always indicating locations of all concealed work and approved deviations from the contract drawings.
