Value Enhancements

Virtual design
RJM has the capability to develop three-dimensional models on projects to simulate the real-world building process. Through virtual design we collaborate with the entire project team, providing value in systems analysis and constructability reviews, enabling the team to make more informed decisions regarding the design, systems, efficiency, and quality of a project. Virtual design technology makes the building process more efficient and eliminates uncertainties.

RJM utilizes virtual design capabilities in various ways including fully engineered projects, design-assist, drone, Lean construction, and for proposals.

Fully Engineered

  • Revit/Navisworks
  • Model Reviews (Clash Detection to identify major constraints)
  • Plan Sets (Floor Plans, Site Plans, Logistics Plans, Elevations, Sections to assist project team)


  • Coordination Models
  • Coordination Meetings
  • As-Built Models


  • Site Documentation
  • QA/QC Assistance
  • Safety Assistance


  • Pull Planning
  • Process Mapping
  • Gemba Walks
  • Pre-fab / Modular Construction​​​​​​​


  • Plans Sets (logistics plans, site plans, elevations, sections)
  • Renderings (Architectural visualization 3D Images)
  • Animations (3D Animation Videos)

MEP coordination
Complicated mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) scopes require strong communication, accurate documentation, and continuous professional review. RJM’s MEP director analyzes the design and is the critical liaison between the design team and the subcontractors. Our ability to clearly understand design intent and coordinate the prefabrications and installation plans results in efficiencies and increased cost savings.

RJM is accustomed to delivering design-build and design-assist MEP scopes of work.

Lean thinking
Lean thinking enhances project value and uncovers wasted resources. Lean processes open dialogue and reinforce collaboration among all project partners. RJM has invested time and resources to expand our understanding of lean thinking, not only concerning projects but in our own internal business practices.

Historic project consulting
When applying for historic tax credits, all work must be approved by the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and the National Park Service. This is a lengthy process that requires a high level of detail. RJM has guided projects such as the Ford Center and Loose Wiles Building efficiently through the process, and appreciates the care needed to protect our historic structures.

As part of the pre-construction process, our team will help identify your goals and determine the most advantageous path. We will carefully analyze costs associated with proposed systems and offer comparison pricing. This not only includes installation prices, but all related operating costs.

Ongoing service work
We know that our clients want peace of mind after the dust settles. RJM’s service team provides routine service, preventative maintenance, and everything in between to assure your building or space remains at the highest level of functionality. Our team can perform routine service, preventative maintenance and rapid construction solutions for your space. RJM can also provide estimates for projects with broader requirements.
