Specializing in Projects that Make a Difference®
"Strategic CM managed the challenging Tri-Cities Airport expansion
project to achieve an on-time, under-budget finish. It was no easy task in
an operating airport to balance the needs of airport administrators, TSA,
and airport concessionaires with the work of the project’s design and
construction team. David Robison, Principal and his team at Strategic
Construction Management did a great job!”"
"David Robison is the consummate construction management professional
- knowledgeable, strategic, personable, a skilled negotiator and a
trustworthy consensus builder. David listens deeply to often different
perspectives and solutions, draws upon his years of experience in proposing
resolution of issues, brings together teams of owners, architects, contractors,
and others to find the best solution to emerging issues, and does so while
maintaining outstanding working relationships and earning the respect and
admiration of those with whom he works. David affirms people, asks probing
questions, and always seeks to develop win-win solutions where possible.
It has been my pleasure and honor to work with him on multiple large scale
construction projects, and I am always eager to work with him on new projects
as well. David's presence on a project is a good indicator that the project
will be a success. "

"The Port of Kennewick is particularly proud of the outstanding cost
estimating, construction management, trouble-shooting, and project oversight
performed by Strategic Construction Management (SCM) under the leadership
of David L. Robison, Principal.
Port of Kennewick has relied upon the experience and expertise of this
local firm all along the way—from evaluating conceptual and architectural
designs and master plan documents, to contractor outreach, bid document
development, distribution and procurement, to construction meetings and
reports, field surveys, permitting, contractor oversight, and construction
management. Throughout each of these projects SCM has delivered
exceptional work; on time, on scope, and on budget. In fact, SCM
not only met, but continually exceeded our expectations by finding
innovative ways to address specific project needs.
Mr. Robison served as a critical liaison working to manage varied interests
and multiple perspectives in shepherding projects to fruition. Indeed,
he has an ability to promote broad understanding, while ensuring work remains
on-task during complex and intricate projects with tight timelines and
competing resources. And, by engaging his guidance and insight early,
we actually saved money over the long-run.
We have found Strategic Construction Management to be an outstanding
firm which is making a difference through a widely-varied construction
skill-set and exceptional customer service. "

"I worked with David Robison and Strategic
Construction Management on the delivery of a complicated, multi-phased,
continually operational project. As the owner’s rep, David coordinated
the efforts of the owner, the design team, and the contractor.
David’s guidance resulted in a level of team work that I have seldom
experienced, and led to higher level of delivery from each of us.
I highly recommend David as a partner in the delivery of a construction project. "

"It was comforting knowing that David Robison with Strategic
Construction Management, Inc. kept in mind the interests of our staff and
the Port of Pasco. Their experience, common sense approach and abilities,
contributed to the completion of the Tri Cities Airport Expansion and
Modernization in a timely and cost effective manner. Our communities

"In an effort to mitigate the risk of major capital construction projects the Kennewick School District wanted to utilize alternate public work strategies, specifically the General Contractor / Construction Manager, GC/CM process as outlined under RCW 39.10, State of Washington. This new vehicle had never been attempted by a public body in our area. We knew we needed an expert on our team to navigate the process. David Robison and his team at Strategic Construction Management were the perfect choice. David listened carefully to fully understand the goals of the district and then helped create a road map to get us there. David’s unwavering focus on the goal has led to a successful project launch. The hiring of Strategic was a great choice!"

"While this may seem to be an expensive component, we believe that by hiring Strategic Construction Management there were offsetting savings due to their pro-active problem solving which prevented potential delays and huge expenses."

"When we recently undertook the biggest project in our 100 year history -- a new field house -- we soon realized that our staff needed a seasoned construction expert "on our side of the table" to help us through this complex process. Linking up with Strategic Construction Management turned out to be a real God-send for us, as we encountered some serious technical challenges along the way. Strategic Construction Management guided us through the project from beginning to end, often raising issues we wouldn't have thought of. No detail ever seemed too small for them, but they also kept an eye on the big picture. We highly recommend their services."

"We hired Strategic Construction Management to act as construction manager for a very complex, multi-phased implementation of our master plan. The master plan included the demolition of several buildings, along with the construction of five buildings on a very small site, within multiple phases, all while the church continued to operate seven days a week! Strategic Construction Management has been invaluable in keeping the project on track, keeping the architect and contractor working together, and keeping the project moving."
"Strategic Construction Management has been a godsend for our church building project. There is considerable construction experience within our congregation, but Strategic Construction Management’s systems and up-to-date experience have made for a smoothly running project. Their participation in negotiation with the architect and contractor has saved the church additional cost. I highly recommend their services."

"It was comforting knowing that you kept in mind the interest of the Fire District and its employees, but as custodians of our tax payers' funds, your common sense approach resulted in the District being able to complete these projects in a timely and cost effective manner. Our communities can be proud of these facilities for years to come."

"...your firm's hand on the budget felt confining at first, but it's what got the project from paper to dirt. The budget sacrifices that we made up front really paid off when the project got underway. We were able to see where our extra money could best be spent more clearly. It was a pleasure to have your company manage this project to final inspection."
