									EI’s Open-Book Approach
Whether as your design/builder or construction manager, EIACI
works closely with you to deliver your project on time, within
budget, at a high quality level. As your design/builder, a single
Project Manager, directed by our Principal-in-Charge, is assigned
as your primary point of contact from conceptual design through
ribbon-cutting and start-up. As a result of our “open-book”
approach, there are no surprises. You see all the bids and have
the final word during the selection and capital disbursement

                                                                                           C E S

In our “open-book” approach, EIACI:
• Prepares subcontractor bid packages
• Solicits at least three to five trade bids

                                                                                           R V I
• Prepares the bid tab after thorough analysis
• Evaluates bids by their components
• Develops comprehensive spreadsheets
• Works with you to select all subs and suppliers
• Negotiates and awards the contracts

You take advantage of any savings generated in the procurement


During construction, we provide at least one construction

professional full-time on the job-site; he is responsible to insure
that the project meets the quality and quantities as prescribed

by the design. He is directed by one of our construction Project                                   Construction
Managers, a senior level professional responsible for the overall

scheduling and success of the project. Also, he is supported

by the office staff of estimators, schedulers, and procurement
specialists. Working as a team, our goal is to bring your project in                               Design / Build
