Business People Talking

PRECONSTRUCTION SERVICES

In the initial planning stages of a project, the client works closely with its design team and construction partner (general contractor, construction manager, or design-build contractor) to develop detailed drawings, schedules, budgets and manpower projections before construction starts. This phase requires frequent communication between the core team and any additional project consultants.

The team works to define the project, prepare cost estimates to meet the budget, identify potential construction issues and solutions, and ultimately determine the most efficient use of money and resources. A thorough and deliberate pre-construction process is extremely important to ensure the project goes as planned and all potential needs are identified and addressed.
