Farrar and Associates

Construction Management & General Contracting

As Construction Manager we are the owners General Contractor. In today’s construction industry the majority of work performed on projects is through the subcontractor market place.  Subcontractors are specialists in their particular trades, and with the efficiency and manpower allocation they bring cannot typically be beat by in-house labor.  Projects are broken apart into individual trade disciplines that are competitively bid through these markets.  All subcontractors and vendors are pre-qualified and only those that meet the project standards are invited to bid. We provide a competitive bid process and set a goal of obtaining three bids for each trade discipline.

After receiving proposals we perform comprehensive scope reviews along with a tabulation of bid results.  We share this information, along with our letter of recommendation to award individual subcontracts with ownership. This creates an open book policy where the owner is encouraged to participate.  Allocation of cost is there for all participants to comment and/or endorse prior to the execution of subcontracts.

Subcontractors are placed under contract with Farrar & Associates.  This provides us, as well as the owner, optimum project control. We provide comprehensive on site supervision, project management and executive management throughout the projects development.  Farrar & Associates is a successful fully licensed and insured Construction Manager/General Contractor with a proven track record of diversified projects, including renovations, historical restorations, new construction and executive residential homes.
