Dominic J. Maltese, Jr., ASPE, CPE has assisted attorneys as a Construction Consultant and Expert Witness for the past several years. His vast knowledge and experience in construction has and continues to be an asset for legal cases. Since the mid 70's, Dominic has worked in virtually all aspects of the design and construction of buildings and facilities. He has developed condominiums and apartment projects, commercial buildings, club houses, medical buildings and worked in the design and engineering of new construction, renovation, adaptive reuse, hundreds of remodeling projects, upscale homes and manufacturing facilities and building restoration.
Our firm has an extensive track record of successfully managing our projects utilizing this approach. Most of our work is performed within the Construction Management delivery system because this approach fosters a healthy, positive relationship among the team (Owner, Architect and Construction Manager). This relationship provides a “check and balance” system permitting major design decisions to be made on the basis of cost, quality and schedule implications as well as aesthetics and functionality. Construction Management maximizes the opportunity to deliver the highest quality project at the lowest cost in the shortest amount of time.
Our extensive estimating process is based on years of development and our system includes breaking down a project by individual components, room, floor, interior area, exterior, site, furnishings, etc. and then summarizing the total by Construction Specification Institute (CSI) division to the front of the report. Our estimating services also include value engineering and recommendation of means and methods to provide cost effective results. The estimate includes subtotals for trade and material costs, general conditions, CG overhead (CM fee and indirect administrative cost), contingency that is reduced as the design phase progresses and a total by line item.

WHY CHOOSE US?
D.J. Maltese is a family owned and operated construction company. Our company started out in 1946 as a plastering contractor, by the late ’50s we were one of Michigan’s largest. With the onset of drywall in the mid-60s my father changed the company into a general contracting company. His work included residential remodeling and new homes. Over the course of the next 10 years the company grew into construction work that included commercial renovation and new office buildings.
STORY ABOUT US
As contractors and builders, D.J. Maltese enjoys the diversity of working on residential, commercial and industrial projects. As you’ll see from our portfolio, we are creative, experienced, and quality driven whether the project is a small residential remodeling job, custom home, a restoration project, a commercial project, or a state-of-the-art industrial project.
In the mid-70s Dominic and Joe joined their father and took the company to the next level. By the early ’80s D.J. Maltese was offering design build services and construction management services that were virtually unknown by small companies and being provided only by very large construction companies. Therein they found a niche in the construction industry to service smaller companies with the quality and services provided by larger companies.
Over the past seventy four years we have watched the construction industry change considerably. This is even truer over the past ten years. The largest change over the past ten years are three areas of concern. First is the advancement of technology. With this advancement the arena of personal contact and communications is being replaced with emails and texting. So, people want instant answers and expect to have responses to their texts within minutes.
