Our experience and thoroughness offer a smooth and professional experience for each client. We have a routine approach to each project, which allows us to keep thing on-track and on-budget. Let’s take a look!
Involving Herr & Co. during the design phase of your project can help streamline the construction process and meet your budget.
Herr & Co. can work closely with you to develop a comprehensive set of drawings for your project, both for accurate estimating and to submit for a building permit.
If you do not already have plans, we will advise you.
We will recommend design options, set-up interviews, and participate in meetings to provide our expertise.
Herr & Co. strives to make our estimating procedures completely transparent.
We use project management software to provide you with a detailed estimate and scope of work.
As part of the estimating process, we will give you a decision list with a timeline for when selections will need to be finalized in order to keep your project on schedule.
After a comprehensive estimate has been generated, we will review it with you and fully explain the value added to your project by using Herr & Co. as your general contractor.
Contract and Start-Up
The final step before pressing “go” with your project is signing a contract with Herr & Co.
After your review and approval of the project estimate and scope of work, we will draft a contract.
We discuss cost-plus or fixed-price options with you to determine the best type of contract for your situation.
Once the contract is signed, we will schedule a start date for your project.
Schedule for Project Completion
Once we have determined a start date for your project, we will create a construction schedule.
The project manager will refer to this schedule to ensure your project is completed on time.
Herr & Co. is dedicated to keeping clear communication with every client.
A Herr & Co. superintendent will be the first point of contact on your project and will work closely with the subcontractors. This employee will also self-perform work throughout the project to minimize overhead.
Project managers will work with you to schedule weekly or bi-weekly site meetings to discuss the progress of your project as well as give you a look ahead.
Once a month, your project manager will review a report with you that shows actual job cost versus your budget and estimate.
Herr & Co.’s goal is to never initiate change orders that would increase the cost of your project. If a change to the original scope of work must be made at any point, we will generate a change order form for you to review and sign.
Our billing procedures make it easy.
Invoices are sent on the first of each month, with payment due in 10 days.
We can work with your bank on a draw schedule or other payment terms.
Since 1988, Herr & Company has proudly provided comprehensive contractor services for residential and commercial construction to Harrisonburg, Rockingham County, and surrounding areas in the Shenandoah Valley.
