As your Owner's Representative

PEGASUS GROUP assists owners in the performance of their obligations as a member of the project team, and oversight of the owner's rights during the planning, design, and construction of the project. We assist the owner with the selection process of the project delivery method, design team and constructor, and administer their contracts throughout the life of the project. PEGASUS GROUP works closely with the campus administration and the project team to ensure that a safe environment exists for students, faculty, staff, and visitors of the campus during construction of the project. Additionally, we work closely with the campus administration and the general contractor to minimize construction-related disruptions to the daily and special activities that occur on campus.

Pre-Design and Pre-Construction Services

Conceptual Planning and Feasibility Assessment

PEGASUS GROUP assists owners in defining the parameters of the project through a pre-design process that involves all associated with the project from the owner’s team to clearly define the scope prior to the engagement of the design team. This process provides the owner greater certainty that the scope of the project is understood internally and defined sufficiently for the design team to commence their work effectively. We will also develop a preliminary overall Master Project Schedule.

Design Management Services

During design we coordinate the design team’s efforts as they verify the program with the various stakeholders of the owner and work with other owner consultants. We review the project schematic design, design development and construction documents, and related cost estimates prepared by the design team for program compliance, conformance with appropriate design and construction standards, budget agreement, etc. Throughout the project we evaluate the plans and specifications to identify and recommend opportunities for value engineering. We also update the Master Project Schedule coordinating major elements of design and construction.
