ICS Consulting provides customized consulting services, with a focus on strategic facilities planning, construction representation, technical services and facilities tax solutions, to both public and private sector clients. With a wealth of combined experience in the industry, our core team members have worked together for more than a decade, delivering project-related representation and management services to clients throughout the upper Midwest.
ICS has been established and built on a philosophy unique to the industry:
ICS service offerings span all phases of a project, and focus heavily on the preliminary assessment work, planning, budgeting, and quality control throughout the development, design, pre-construction, construction, and post-construction/occupancy phases. We strongly believe that all services should be tailored to meet the individual needs of each client and project situation. This allows us to maintain and enhance project quality while eliminating unnecessary layers of service and associated complication and expense on a given project.
Early project stage services include project scope development; conceptual and design-phase cost estimating; value engineering and life-cycle analysis; project funding and budget evaluation; critical path scheduling and phasing analysis; and design and constructability reviews. Construction phase services are customized to the needs of each individual project and owner and can range from project representation and contract administration services to full-time site supervision and management, depending on the size, complexity, and unique characteristics of the project at hand.
ICS team members are uniquely qualified, possessing a diverse and experienced background in the planning and construction industry. This depth of experience enables our team to proactively work on behalf of our clients through all phases of the process, ensuring that each solution or alternative will be reviewed and evaluated from multiple perspectives on the owner’s behalf. This has proven a significant differentiator for our clients on past planning efforts and projects, providing continuity, value, and quality control.
