The LMC Method

Traditional Home Building vs. The LMC-CM Residential Construction Method

In Traditional Home Building, there is a very specific step-by-step method that takes place which takes control of the home building process out of the hands of the homeowner and into the hands of a General Contractor.

The process starts with an Architect who incorporates the homeowners’ vision into the plans and the Architect then retains an engineer. When the plans are complete the Architect gives the plans to the homeowner to select a General Contractor.

During this revolutionary way of building residences, not only do we take certain aspects of commercial construction and incorporate them into building a quality home in the most cost-effective way possible, but we put full control of the project back into the hands of the homeowner. As part of the Mamo Residential Construction Management Method, we guide the homeowner during every step of the building process.

The Traditional Home Building Method

  • The process starts with an Architect
  • Incorporates the homeowners’ vision into the plans
  • Architect retains an engineer
  • When the plans are complete the Architect gives the plans to the homeowner
  • Homeowner selects a General Contractor
  • General Contractor (GC) runs the project
  • GC selects gets the necessary subcontractors and permits
  • Electrical subcontractor, Plumbing subcontractor and Air Conditioning subcontractor all pull separate permits (even though they relate to the master permit)
  • GC selects various tradesmen:
    • Concrete contractors (foundations)
    • Blocking and framing contractors
    • Drywall hangers
    • Carpenters
    • Roofing contractors
    • May consider shell contractors (who specialize in concrete, masonry, reinforcing steel and carpentry services)
  • GC will also bring the plans to a truss company who will deliver the spec trusses to the construction site
  • Carpenters will install the trusses and apply the plywood.
  • Roofing contractor will finish from there
  • GC will engage window and door manufacturers (making sure they meet local code), insulation companies and for those homeowners who want a swimming pool, a pool builder.

LMC-CM Residential Construction Method

  • The process starts with an Engineer
  • Engineer helps design the home in the most cost effective manner possible.
  • Engineer has a better understanding of product costs than an Architect as they must take local building codes, regulations and restrictions into consideration.
  • Engineer sits down with a space planner and an interior designer to create the specifications which can include as many or as little details as necessary (room dimensions, where electrical outlets should be placed, etc.)
  • Engineer engages an Architect and provides the specifications on what products to use from windows and doors to all air conditioning specs.
  • When plans are submitted for approval, because all of the details are specified to code, they should be expedited in the quickest possible manner (saving the homeowner time and money in the building process)
  • LMC works as your personal residential construction consultant
  • LMC helps the homeowner engage cost estimators to price out the job (materials and labor). The homeowner will know the cost of every component in the construction process. Homeowners are protected from hidden up-charges so they will know the true cost of their home beforehand.
  • LMC works with subcontractors and have them sign contracts protecting the homeowner from hidden costs by agreeing to remove their own debris and in the event they do not, they are financially liable to the homeowner.
  • Physical construction will take the traditional route, except the homeowner is in 100% control.
  • LMC’s fee for serving as your personal residential construction consultant will range from 5% to 6% plus a small percentage on any additional cost savings we can help you with after the job has started.
  • Unlike a GC, LMC will go the extra step to protect your home during the construction process.
    • LMC will put a fence on the job site
    • Protect the property 24/7 by with temporary cameras that can be accessed from your home computer or your smart phone so you can watch your home as it is being built
    • Ensure nobody is on your property after hours.
  • LMC will set up the homeowner’s project on QuickBooks so cost analysis can be adjusted as necessary as the different phases of construction moves along.

Bidding and Negotiation

Louis Mamo & Company Construction Management delivers bid documents that demonstrate a high standard of care for quality construction. Drawings are prepared in industry standard software, the specifications are prepared in Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) format, and the construction documents are developed to be complete and accurate.

Upon approval of the Construction Documents we will assist the homeowner in answering questions and providing clarifications during the bidding process and review contractors’ requests for substitutions. Our team strives to represent the best approach to meet the homeowner’s budget, long-term needs, and schedule.

Renovation Planning & Design

Once the economics of a renovation project is confirmed, we can assist with developing the renovation program. This program includes developing the necessary documentation for obtaining the funding, rebates if applicable, and a detailed project schedule to understand site use and tenant occupancy during the renovation project. We are very familiar with projects that remain occupied during construction and special demands such projects produced on design and execution of construction. We coordinate with management and homeowner affected by the project to ensure efficient execution of the construction work with minimal disruptions. We provide detailed reporting and continuous supervision throughout the project to keep the homeowner and management abreast of all challenges and progress.

LMC-CM develops the renovation design documents for your project ranging from simple paint, window, and door upgrades to extensive new architectural facades, energy upgrades, lighting and interiors. LMC-CM has expertise in both renovation and new construction projects in single family and multi-family residential projects. We use award winning mechanical and electrical engineering design teams with expertise in energy efficiency and data systems.


Construction Monitoring & Quality Assurance

Louis Mamo & Company Construction Management provides full-time or part-time construction monitoring services directed at achieving the highest possible level of quality assurance. Construction monitoring services have the potential to make the most significant difference in achieving a longer life expectancy of your roofing, waterproofing, and residential systems. Our team of experienced construction monitors has been recognized by industry organizations as experts.

Our specialized building construction observations/monitoring services consists of specialized quality assurance on behalf of the homeowner to observe critical construction components during building process. Building envelope (the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building including the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer), waterproofing and roofing system construction is extraordinarily complex and unanticipated conditions which require the attention of the designers frequently occur.

This service consists of specialized quality assurance on behalf of the homeowner to observe critical building envelope components during construction.

We protect the property 24/7 by installing temporary cameras that can be accessed by the homeowner from their home computer or smart phone so they can watch their home as it is being built.

Time and time again monitoring services have proven to spare homeowners from far more costly repairs in the future. As a result, we consider construction monitoring and observations critical to a successful project. To the best of our knowledge, there is no better way to confirm that the Contractor is providing and installing what you and the design team envisioned and what you are paying for.

LMC-CM’s specialized building envelope construction observations and monitoring services consists of:

  • Temporary cameras that can be accessed through a laptop or smart phone
  • Specialized quality assurance to observe critical building envelope components during construction
  • Review construction details that may cause problems later on and provide Field Consultation During Construction (FCDC)
  • Identify significant deviations from the standard details and procedures
  • Evaluate general compliance with codes and standards
  • Time and time again monitoring services have proven to spare homeowners from far more costly repairs in the future. To the best of our knowledge, there is no better way to assist the contractor in providing and installing what the design team envisioned and what was contracted to the homeowner. Quality assurance monitoring by an independent and qualified third party can identify potential design issues that can cause construction delays and mitigate potential defect litigation by documentation of construction and testing.

LMC-CM can also provide third party quality assurance monitoring during materials installation by approved applicators to make sure manufacturer’s guidelines and specifications are complied with and that the warranty is secured.
