NEMA was engaged as the owner’s agent and program manager to lead the design and construction process. NEMA worked with the team to generate and evaluate value engineering options in order to achieve the aggressive project scope within the pro-forma budget.

Turnover & Closeout

NEMA management came highly recommended to me when we were looking for construction management for our project. I knew within five minutes of meeting them that they would be an effective partner, mainly because of the clarity in their communication. To me, clear communication is a sign of clear thinking – and the team has demonstrated that by being deliberate in the way they define issues, manage expectations, and juggle multiple interests to keep everyone progressing on a unified mission. Working together over the last 18+ months has given us a great sense of confidence.
