30 YEARS INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE

"RUN A BETTER BUSINESS, BECOME MORE PROFITABLE!"

CONSTRUCTION CONSULTATION

Our specialty, and the majority of our work, is generated from construction companies. We help them improve business knowledge, run businesses better, and streamline processes and construction management.

A smooth construction job relies on strong management and streamlined processes. An efficient and dedicated building professional has to schedule sub-contractors, manage finances, vendors and the client. With years of experience in the construction industry, the goal is to help construction companies, and sometimes homeowners, navigate the project to make sure everything is done on time and correctly the first time.

Each project represents a unique opportunity to get everything right. Through our professional construction consultation services, we make sure you do.

TESTIMONIALS

"Duane and his crew recently finished our first major renovation on our new home. We had multiple projects going on in our home. Everything was completed on time and we were impressed with all the sub contractors work. We really enjoyed the experience with Duane and his team. They were patient when we had not made final decisions . We appreciated having daily updates from Kelly- the project manager. The team was extremely accommodating to working with our own painter in regards to scheduling. This was our first renovation job and the overall experience was excellent."

-Leslie Moss

There projects are completed on time with minimal disruptions to schedules and of the highest quality work. I've recommended them to a number of clients and always with confidence that projects will be done right."

BOOK

KEYS TO SUCCESS

The average homeowner sees home improvement and construction as a "project". Not much more than a glorified todo list.

In his book, longtime contractor Duane Barney solidly puts this myth to rest. "The biggest misunderstanding homeowners have is that the contractor is just as in love with their project as they are. So, while the contractor makes decisions out of construction and business realities, the homeowner decides mostly based on emotions and the two frequently conflict." Barney says.

Through the use of a fictionalized case study of an actual failed home renovation, and his years of educating clients to the business of construction, Barney lays a strong foundation for better working relationships between homeowners and contractors, paving the way for success.
