Home > Expertise  > Preconstruction


During pre-construction we identify opportunities for efficiency and improvements to resolve potential challenges before construction begins. Our team offers valuable insight through early analysis of scope, design, budget, schedule, and constructability. These insights allow you to make informed decisions that can significantly impact your project’s time and cost.

Preconstruction Services:

  • Budgeting
  • Cost analysis
  • Conceptual estimating
  • Project bidding & scope evaluation
  • Scheduling
  • Constructability reviews

Planning for Success from the Start

The cornerstone of a successful project is a well thought-out detailed plan. Our preconstruction services can result in long-term savings, both in construction costs and maintenance expenses. All essential activities will be incorporated with focus on special activities such as our client’s milestones or time constraints, time sensitive procurement items, fabrication and delivery activities and project critical activities such as foundation, structural frame and MEP systems.

Our Process

Our experience shows that early assembly of the team brings predictability and peace of mind into the entire project. We use Trimble Viewpoint ERP system that integrates our accounting, estimating and project management to manage costs through the entire life cycle of a project. Our goal is to always provide the highest quality project at the lowest cost. Detailed preconstruction services from the start can result in significant time and cost savings for our clients.

  • Provide extensive system studies to review the earthwork and balancing the site, site utilities, steel fabrication and design efficiencies, roofing, framing, finishes, mechanical, plumbing and electrical.

  • Develop detailed cost estimates throughout the design process.

  • Conduct constructability reviews to address logistics, safety considerations, staging and storage, schedule, and efficiencies that can be incorporated into the design.

  • We develop a list of value engineering items for consideration at each design phase.
