Whether it’s in real-time, daily, or weekly, Macon manages project reporting and documentation that keeps the Project Team informed of all aspects of our projects; small or large. Macon embraces technology by utilizing tools like Building Connected, ProCore, and Holobuilder to provide online access to all project details.

Why Macon Construction?


As conceptual plans and early schematic information become available Macon begins to prepare the preliminary detailed budget estimates for review and consideration by the Client. These estimates are organized and follow the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) major division categories. Historical cost data is utilized as a reference for building components which have not been fully developed.

Once the preliminary documents progress and begin to show in more detail the extent of work to be performed, Macon will prepare more definitive budget estimates. These estimates will be the basis for design adjustments to insure that the final budget is consistent with the Client’s objectives. Any updating of the established budget is performed to measure and control the design progress in comparison with previously approved budgets.

Macon develops internal estimates in the architectural, structural, civil, mechanical and electrical trades. These estimates are rigorously checked against those bids submitted by the individual subcontractors. Macon’s extensive historical data from comparable projects enable us to evaluate the relative costs and benefits of alternate systems.


Macon considers safety our primary concern, with the goal of zero incidents being recognized by all our employees. This commitment is filtered down to all employees through various means so that employees recognize and appreciate our concern for their health and safety on-site.

As part of our overall program, we actively keep safety in the forefront by:

– Providing On-site Safety Training
– Attending Safety Seminars Presented by Our Insurer
– Distributing Safety Information & Materials to All Job Sites
– Discussing Safety Protocols Every Jobsite Meeting, including Toolbox Talks
– Conducting Regular Inspections of the Jobsite
