Measuring twice is our first priority.
Early Collaboration Equals Best Value
Through our proven process, we establish a foundation of team responsibilities, collaborative communication and trust. Early engagement with your construction team is key to the success of your project. Nor-Son’s project managers and estimators have extensive experience working and collaborating with architects, which has allowed us to continue to enhance our knowledge of best practices in design and construction.
Through a collaborative team approach, ideas and insights are gathered from key subcontractors and vendors. Our construction experts review design strategies for construct-ability, budget control, and schedule impact to maintain the value in your project.
Nor-Son begins with a general understanding of design expectations, building function and operation, and project budget. Project estimates begin at an early stage in the process and are carried throughout the design and construction phases for no surprises.

Sometimes You Want It All Under one Roof
Our architects and design staff work in concert with our construction personnel to ensure design creativity is firmly grounded with construction reality. We’ll work with you to deliver a construction package that best serves your needs. This long-term commitment retains the most value in your building project.
BIM (Building Information Modeling)
Our design and construction professionals utilize Building Information software to pre-construct a building to proactively visualize, identify, and coordinate building construction and constraints before breaking ground. Through this software, our technology professionals can prepare schedule and cost estimates to identify critical coordination areas and offer alternative solutions.
Interior selections are often the most overwhelming part of a building project. We can assist you with all material and finish decisions throughout the design and construction process. Working directly with your project architect and construction manager, your interior designer will customize a package specific to you and your needs.
