We seek to get involved early in the design phase so that we can manage the project more efficiently, provide effective building solutions, and identify challenges early on to mitigate design changes after construction commencement. This involves detailed pre-construction planning crucial to successful construction and on-time delivery, and allows the client and team a clear pathway to the bidding process, construction phase, and through to completion.
AGENCY CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
As an Agency Construction Manager, Midwest Construction Professionals provides a professional service that can be applied to all delivery methods where we act as the owner’s principal agent. The only major distinction between our Owners Representative services and our Construction Management services, is that as an Agency CM, we provide both project management and on-site supervision. The multiple prime contracting system is used; however, the quantity of prime contractors varies from project to project.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AT RISK
As a Construction Manager at Risk, Midwest Construction Professionals provides similar services as an Agency CM during the pre-design and design phase; however, we act similar to that of a general contractor during the construction phase due to our contractual agreement with the owner. MCP holds the risk of construction performance and guarantees completion of the project for a negotiated Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). The GMP is usually established at a point during the design when the construction documents are between 60 and 90 percent complete.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING…
Chris Tyra is extremely knowledgeable in construction field and has built a network of subcontractors that are responsive to him and do quality work. Additionally, I found that his peers in the industry also think highly of his skills and ability to execute and deliver. I would describe Chris as attentive and a man of his word. He made us feel like a relatively small project was his number one priority, in spite of him also managing other larger projects at the same time. The Ackerman family has been very pleased with the final finished product and the fact we were able to open on schedule, at a cost savings. We highly recommend Chris Tyra and Midwest to anyone looking for construction needs, whether large or small.
Midwest Construction Professionals is currently working on its first project with PCHS. Chris and Scott have been working very well identifying the project needs and working with our engineers to make sure nothing is missed while designing the project. Chris is very good at communicating everything to both the engineers and the district for the project.
As a public school Superintendent with no background in construction, it was imperative that we find the means to protect the school district’s best interests throughout the construction process. Roger Hess and his colleague Mr. Chris Tyra, have done that since the first day on the job. Roger has communicated openly and frequently with me, noting observations, concerns, and progress of the project. From large issues, to minute details, Roger has a wealth of experience. What little he doesn’t know, he researches to become informed. I found Roger to be on target with every issue we’ve faced. His expertise has been invaluable throughout our project.. I strongly recommend Mr. Roger Hess as a construction manager.
Chris Tyra, Roger Hess, and Scott Kelsey have all been an important part of our construction team throughout our current $17.4 million school addition and renovation.
Chris Tyra was an instrumental part of our team that made this large project happen. He is a man of his word. He is intelligent, hardworking, and diligent in his approach to dealing with both progress and adversity. We fully trusted Chris’ opinions and ideas as he led a team of contractors and subcontractors through the bidding process and up to job completion.
