Sullivan & Cozart is a full-service general contractor that will furnish labor, materials, and equipment required to construct the project. We self-perform with our own tradesmen; concrete, rough carpentry, installation of the doors, frames, hardware and division 10 items. We utilize many sub-contractors in the area for our projects while managing and coordinating those contractors and self-performing our work for the duration of the job. Being a General Contractor is advantageous in that we have a labor pool that we can hire from to maintain or accelerate the construction schedule, supplement work force of other trades, control the projects work flow, and have control over the quality of our work. This method reduces the sub-contractors on the project which makes the operation more efficient and cost effective. This method of construction is typically performed on a lump sump or GMP basis of contract.
Some clients prefer the Construction Management method of construction and Sullivan & Cozart has been performing projects with this method for many years. This method allows the Project Owner and Sullivan & Cozart to be a team early in the design process to help establish the most cost effective budget for the project. This involves using a very systematic approach coupled with heavy input from the Owner and Architect during the design phase to review and critique cost associated with the plans at various stages of the design. This allows for the plans and the budget to match when the drawings are complete. This method saves time and cost for the owner. Sullivan & Cozart will then solicit qualified bidders for the project and manage the final bidding and estimating of the project to establish the final budget amount. This method is an open book approach allowing the owner to see all bids, have input on contractors awarded, review weekly/monthly cost compared to the budget. We then manage the project with our Project Managers, Superintendents and Administrative staff as required while conducting weekly Owner’s meetings, Subcontractor meetings and complete open book accounting for the project.
