Competitive Bidding a Key to Our Success
Forty years of building custom homes in central Vermont has enabled us to build working relationships with a variety of the highest quality subcontractors and vendors doing business in our area. Because of our successful relationships with the area’s best qualified millwork shops, electricians, plumbers, masons, etc., we are able to provide each project with multiple competitive bids for each trade, guaranteeing the best pricing for our clients.
Brothers Building works personally with the client throughout the design-development phases, including pricing and value-engineering. All competitive pricing is meticulously documented and detailed, affording the client a full understanding of each component and enabling the client, architect and Brothers Building to value-engineer every component to achieve budgeting targets. Whatever the budget criteria, Brothers Building works diligently with both client and design team to achieve the client’s goals.
Cost Accounting / Fiscal Responsibility
Brothers Building has developed one of the most detailed cost accounting and record-keeping systems in the custom home building industry. Finely tuned by 40 years of experience and input from architects and clients, our monthly progress billings divide every expenditure into one of numerous categories and simultaneously track each category of the budget, identifying for each the expenditures to date, percentage of the work completed, portions of the budget to date not spent and percentage of the work to be completed for each item.
Each project is assigned a full time project superintendent responsible for day-to-day operations. Our experienced project superintendents focus on every detail of the project and are dedicated to both the financial and aesthetic success of your project. Our professional office staff supports the project superintendent in tracking costs and insuring costs are inline with budgets, monitoring on-time material deliveries and administering subcontracts. More than twenty Brothers employees have been with the company over 10 years, several for over 20 years.
