Preconstruction

No construction project will succeed without careful planning. That is why our preconstruction services are so valuable to us and to our clients.

Before any ground is broken and before any materials are ordered, our preconstruction managers, estimators and project managers work closely with the client, architect and other key project partners to execute a variety of preconstruction services. The goal is to craft a well-defined project scope, schedule and budget that will drive your project’s success.

Who should consider utilizing our preconstruction services? Just about everyone. The work is beneficial on small projects that are not yet fully defined, and it is beneficial for large projects that are complex in nature and cost millions of dollars.

The price for construction planning services is a very small percentage of your project’s total cost. It is a small investment that delivers big rewards. Preconstruction services uncover the ‘unknowns’ upfront, before they throw a big wrench into a schedule or budget.

Preconstruction services could include some, or all, of the following depending on a client’s specific needs:

  • Project Feasibility Study
  • Constructability Reviews
  • Lifecycle Analysis
  • Conceptual Budgeting
  • Cost Estimating
  • Schedule Optimization
