Landmark consistently focuses sharply on cost control and schedule attainment. We bring value with our market-ready knowledge of prevailing costs for a wide range of environmental services, which provides for rapid and accurate cost estimating during the design phase. This capability helps us design to the established budget and support decisions to keep the project viable rather than depend on value engineering at the end of the construction document phase. With this approach our customers are not surprised by our costs or by project costs after bids have come in too high. When Landmark manages the work through the job life cycle we have consistently accomplished 100 percent attainment of allocated budgets and stayed within recommended contingencies.
An example of our culture of project responsibility is the successful abatement and demolition of the former Presbyterian St. Luke’s hospital in Denver, Colorado. Work variances designed by Landmark, then proposed to and accepted by state regulators allowed the demolition schedule to be completed in just 4 months and provided an estimated cost savings of over $2M to the $8M project. Once budgets were established cost overruns were less than five percent. This was the largest single-permit asbestos abatement project in Colorado history.
