A UNIFIED APPROACH

At Daedalus Projects, Inc., Owner’s Project Managers and Cost Estimators collaborate under one roof — and our clients benefit.

Within our highly collaborative office environment, our Cost Estimators use the Project Managers as an invaluable resource for consults regarding site logistics, scheduling, and the most current construction practices being utilized in the field. Similarly, the Project Managers have immediate access to the Estimators for accurate cost assessments for change orders and proposed project elements.

We are a small firm, and we think that’s a big advantage. Our size allows us to provide each of our clients with dedicated, personal attention. Daedalus has always believed that successful projects start with strong partnerships; we therefore take the time to understand the unique needs and desires of each community we serve.

The results speak for themselves.  Daedalus has successfully managed over $700 million in construction value in the last ten years alone. Those projects can be seen in towns across Massachusetts and include public schools, higher education facilities, libraries, municipal offices, public safety facilities, and more. Our cost estimates are comprehensive and consistently show minimal variance from actual bid results. This level of accuracy has earned us the loyalty of longstanding clients who have trusted our services for decades.

When you hire Daedalus, you gain a dedicated partner that will apply industry knowledge and experience to make your vision a reality.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

As Owner’s Project Managers, Daedalus provides each client with exceptional, personal service coupled with comprehensive technical expertise. We have successfully completed over 50 projects totaling in excess of $1 billion in construction value.

Our staff consists of seven highly qualified Project Managers, including a registered Architect and a registered Engineer, as well as ten Project Representatives, all of whom have over 20 years of construction experience and hold unrestricted construction supervisors licenses.

The bulk of our Project Management work is in Massachusetts. As a result, we are very familiar with Massachusetts public bidding laws and regulations, and have working relationships with the major firms and organizations that operate in the state.

COST ESTIMATING

Our Cost Estimating department completes hundreds of estimates annually on all building types, at all phases of design. Led by the Director of Cost Estimating, Delwyn Williamson, our team includes specialists in architectural, structural, civil, mechanical, and electrical estimating.

Our nationwide network of contacts and careful analysis of bid results ensures that we have the most up-to-date information regarding market costs and regional valuation.

Daedalus prides itself on producing estimates that are accurate, prompt, and comprehensive. In addition to basic estimating services, we can advise clients on value management strategies, overall project budget, and project scheduling; assess life-cycle costs; and perform reconciliations.

OUR PROJECTS

“I can’t speak more highly of [Daedalus’] qualifications and their willingness to work closely with the Owner and Contractor in a true partnership effort. We would like nothing better than to continue our working relationship as opportunities present themselves.”

Steve Popper, P.E. | Director of Design and Construction, | Town of Needham

“It was evident that [Daedalus] had a strong working knowledge of public construction in Massachusetts.”, “It is obvious that not only does Daedalus understand how to oversee construction; they care about the end result and client satisfaction.”

Frank Lynam | Town Administrator, | Town of Whitman

“Daedalus has consistently impressed us and our clients with the accuracy and detail of their estimates, whether at a schematic level or at the completion of contract documents … [the] staff at Daedalus are always willing to do a little extra to make the quality of their estimates even better and to customize the estimate for our clients needs. We feel fortunate to have worked with such a competent professional team and look forward to many more years of collaboration.”

“For us at KBA, comparing to Daedalus to other cost estimating firms is like comparing 3-D to two-dimensional images. They bring so much more to the estimating process, becoming active project team members who contribute to project buildability.”
