Brighton High School – Renovation
School District 27J has developed an extremely successful team partnership working with Howell Construction. We have had the pleasure of working directly with Scott Komula, Project Manager, and Kevin Barden, the Superintendent from Howell Construction, on the Brighton High School renovation project this summer. In this remodel we are using the construction manager/general contractor delivery method. As of today the project is on schedule and on-budget because of Howell’s dedication to our project.
One of the critical elements to the success of a design and construction project lies in the ability of the team – the Owner, Architect, Engineers, and Contractor, – to develop a positive, productive working relationship with one another. Communication and mutual understanding are paramount to successful completion of a project, particularly on projects where the team has to coordinate with utilities, regulatory agencies, and School Staff while maintaining cost and schedule parameters. This requires a Contractor to maintain close contact and communication with the project Owner, and the Architectural and Engineering team through the duration of the project.
Howell Construction has demonstrated their ability to bridge the gap between the various stakeholders, listening closely and facilitating open communication and resolution of potential problems before they become insurmountable. Whether they are part of the team at the beginning or are awarded the project through competitive bidding, Howell Construction comes to the table as a team player, with the interest of a successful project in mind. Their professionalism, coupled with their construction expertise and management ability has contributed directly to the success of the Brighton High School remodel project.
I would highly recommend Howell Construction to an Owner looking for a quality contractor highly experienced, as they have proven themselves fair, knowledgeable, and efficient in project management and construction management tasks associated with our projects.
