Milagros & Associates brings a much disciplined approach to Project Management to ensure the success of a project. Its three most important and basic components consist of, Communication, Team Building and Cost Control. These three items are all closely intertwined, and cannot be placed in an order of importance relative to one another.
Cost control is a particular area where Milagros places a tremendous amount of time and energy. Baseline control budgets that include all project costs, both hard and soft are developed with the Owner and shared with the Architect. Throughout the design phases, costs are being checked and validated both by independent estimators and Construction Managers. Milagros also establishes a system for submittal and approval of Change Orders, an inevitable part of any project. An independent cost tracking system is set in place to monitor, record and report costs as they occur. Milagros feels that it is critical for the Owner to understand and confirm costs, independent of a General Contractor or Construction Manager’s report. To handle the cost control and monitor a project’s progress and flag potential problems, Milagros incorporates the use of project management software, which provides many essential tools for project control.
