How is CK Condominium Different?

Need more information? Here are some questions our clients commonly have.

Traditional Construction

  • Traditionally, when a renovation is being planned, 3 – 5 General Contractors are contacted.
  • Traditionally in a larger renovation, an engineer is contacted. “Spec and Scope” are produced. Followed by 3 – 5 General Contractors are selected to bid.
  • The General Contractors than contact all their SUBcontractors to provide bids on each particular-scope of the work.
  • Once all bids are supplied to the Generals, the General puts together a “Bid Package” all applicable pricing complete with there “mark up” and submits to the engineer.
  • The engineer puts all the bids from the Generals together and presents them to the Condominium Board.
  • Once the Condominium awards the job to the selected General Contractor, the General takes over.
  • The General sets up on site and supplies a Construction Manager to run all trades until the project is complete.
  • Complete Site review is done by the Engineering Firm.

CK Condominium Model

  • We review the scope of work and contact each appropriate contractors directly.
  • We have contractor companies bid on individual trades not the entire project. 
  • CK meets with the Engineering Firm that works for the Condo Corporation. 
  • Deconstructive testing is done with the Engineer to fine tune the scope of the project. 
  • As Contractors estimates are gathered and CK creates a report that is presented to the Condo Corporation show our findings. 
  • The board has access to review all estimates from contractors rather than a single combined bid.
  • Everything is designed for complete transparency.
  • CK Condo gives recommendations on which Contractors the Condo Board should hires.
  • Each Contractors contract is signed directly by the Board. All warranties go directly to the Condominium NOT to the General Contractor.
  • Once the contracts are finalized, CK Condominium sets up on site and oversees the renovation from start to finish.
  • CK sets up schedules, daily progress and as required meets with the Engineer to review site conditions and provide “Sign-off” when rot is discovered.
  • CK Model is designed to SAVE Money through the “transparency” of direct quotations and review of each Contractors
  • Invoicing rather than Group Billings provided by a General Contractor.
  • With each Vendor billing the Condo directly, there is no additional mark up. Usually seen in the “Traditional General Contractors Model.”
  • Using the CK Model reduces anxiety on a Condo Corporation and the Property Management firm.
