Project Management

Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, securing, and managing resources to achieve specific goals. A project is an endeavor with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or specific requirements), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. In practice, the management of projects requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies. Project management is used in many diverse industries.
We have an “Open Book” project management system and use a separate checking account for every home we build. There are no secrets or hidden pricing. You have access to every document and can even see every invoice and every payment made for your home. This process assures that there’s no co-mingling of funds – an important issue in this lean economy.  

Personal Website
We provide our customers with their own password-protected website during construction. The website serves as a hub to access all the documents and information related to each project. Every single document is organized on a project-basis and accessible to then entire team. Every team member receives an access priority and can only view documents relevant to their scope of work.

This includes but is not limited to: Builder-Owner agreements; permits and licenses; all Trade proposals and agreements; all color, material and product selections; estimates and quantity calculations; checking account statements; job cost reports; construction schedule reports; all correspondence; checklists; worksheets; punch lists and warranty documents. 

Negotiated Fee
We prefer to negotiate our builder's fee and discuss construction costs as early as possible in the design or build processes. Removing the cloud of uncertainty from the relationship, opens the door for productive communication and alignment of project goals. We would like to earn a fair fee for our services and have nothing to hide. Let us show you why the services provided by Groninger Homes are such a great value.

Design and Construction Ideas and Information about Homes in the South. Florida and the Gulf Coast have unique climate and environmental conditions that have influenced the design of homes since long before air-conditioning was available. Lessons from “Olde Florida” vernacular design still apply today. With energy efficiency and a new green awareness on the minds of many in the industry, building systems and construction techniques are evolving forward with an eye on the past.
