Ilya has a company called Construction Guide, and he provides a service free of charge to Owners that brings contractors and construction managers to Owners to bid on projects. He reviews the project in advance and develops a bid list with architects and owners, and then assists in communication during bidding. The results are great, as I have already used him on a renovation project. The contractors were perfectly suited to the scope for the work, the prices were very accurate and clustered within 5% each other and everyone met the schedule.

We needed to replace a non performing specialty contractor for a global restaurant client without impacting our schedule in a challenging labor market.
