Correcting Problems Early

As a project progresses, the cost of finding and fixing problems increases. Plus, potential benefits are forfeited.

The best time to fix a problem is early on, when costs are low and the potential positive impact of the change is high.

    The quality of the [feasibility study provided by Synergy] led the district to immediately retain Synergy to design a new boiler plant and serve as construction manager... After one year of working with Synergy, I can say without hesitation that our assessment of their company was accurate. From the budget development stage to the punch lists, Synergy offers their experience as "your representation."
