    Historical Data

    I have made the statement that companies that try to price their work by the Square will one day go broke. No one has proven me wrong to date.  This is a horrible way to price your work for so many reasons. First, the square foot of a project often times has little to do with most of the key factors.

You also don’t have a material list to work with and no way to actually track the project. For example: A hospital will…

    The Super Superintendent “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” --a phrase coined by Benjamin Franklin long before the Superintendent title existed. The advice presented in this axiom is certainly taken up by those whom our Career Matchmakers identify as the most-marketable construction Superintendents.
