How to Save at Least 20% on Multifamily Construction Costs
Two days before bids were due on a 110,000-square-foot, five-story multifamily project, four of the bidding general contractors privately called the owner with the same question: Where did he come up with the cost of construction numbers?
They were at least 20% below what they expected. Had they missed something?For Jonathan Byler, owner and operator of Byler Holdings, a Pennsylvania-based business group and project owner, the calls confirmed what he already knew. Not only did he make a great choice of construction method, but his company gained a greener structure with tenant-loving acoustical, energy, and safety features no local competitor can match.
