Pre-Construction

Pre-Construction

The pre-construction design phase is crucial to the success of the project.  By doing so, we are better able to understand the project as it relates to owners’ needs and expectations.  The best facilities and development planning require a combination of experience, creativity and complex analysis of the entire scope.

The pre-construction process involves delivery methods, accurate conceptual and detailed cost estimating, site evaluation, scheduling, and the selection of the best building systems for a particular project.  Our extensive database of completed projects provides historical analysis and also allows us to finish our projects within budget and schedule.

We develop and maintain a master schedule, which identifies long lead-time items as well as design milestones, permits and approvals, and phasing.  We also create a rolling schedule that provides a snapshot of the project and is regularly updated with any decisions that may influence completion.  Our leadership team reviews project schedules daily, so that everyone is on the same page at all times.

Our goal during the pre-construction process is to eliminate wasted time, surprises once construction begins, and to build the project as planned.
