What We Do

Palacio Collaborative works successfully with our Clients by listening first. We make sure we fully understand the Client’s vision, mission, hierarchy of goals and objectives, functional needs, and preferences. We tailor our services to protect the Owner’s interest. Our Team is built around the unique requirements of each project and we hold ourselves, staff, consultants and contractors accountable to accomplishing each task with strong leadership, proactive thinking, and effective communication.

Cost Management

Cost Management

Cost Management is a highly effective process that ensures that the Owner’s interests are represented throughtout the design process and that a project is delivered to the maximum the budget will accommodate. Working closely with the Owner, Palacio Collaborative has added as much as 20% to the value of the project (or conversely, kept the project scope/quality from being needlessly reduced or redesigned by 20%).

Cost Modelling

Cost Modeling

Establishing a reconciled budget and scope is a critical first step toward project success. The earlier a Construction Cost Manager is introduced in the Design process, the greater an environment is created for proper project alignment. Palacio Collaborative is able to provide Budgeting and Conceptual Estimating at the beginning of the Pre-design or programming stage. Our Cost Management services continue to accurately reflect project cost and control at every phase of the phase of the project to help the Owner and Project Team to create the most building the budget will allow.
