GENERAL CONTRACTOR VS
Initial decisions on a project include: where and when do we get involved in a project, how much does the owner want to be involved in the day to day aspects and how much risk does the owner wish to retain. EW Howell is equally confident and comfortable operating as either Construction Manager or General Contractor, depending on the needs of the client and the project. Whichever role we take on, the construction and project management will be done at the highest level and the job will be completed right and on time.
EW Howell offers a variety of pre-construction services to ensure your project operates on budget and on time. While each project has its own unique set of pre-construction requirements, the following pre-construction services are an essential component of EW Howell’s commitment to your project’s success.
The majority of our work is obtained through competitive lump sum G.C. bidding in both the public and private sectors. As one of the largest commercial builders on Long Island, EW Howell enjoys a loyal following of qualified subcontractors across many trades that enables us to develop highly competitive, qualified bids.
Over the past several years, EW Howell has significantly increased the number of projects in which we act as Construction Manager, the majority of those projects being C.M. “at risk” including UCP of Suffolk, Lowe’s, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, Rubie Corporate Plaza, and Kaufman Astoria Studios. Whether serving as General Contractor or Construction Manager during the construction process, we offer a highly motivated and qualified staff.
