During the pre-construction phase of a project, a strategic plan must be created, a budget and timeline must be agreed upon, a design for the project is finalized, procurement of both labor and resources occurs, and permitting is acquired.
This phase of a project helps map out a plan early on - way before shovels even go in the ground. This puts the project team in a better position to manage change and proactively communicate with key stakeholders.
We believe in the saying, "People don't plan to fail; they simply fail to plan" and our approach unravels the complexities of a project to ensure risk is managed and a well thought out execution plan is in place. Decisions made during the pre-construction phase live throughout the lifecycle of the project, which is why it is so important to make sure it's done correctly and with the right partners.
We will work with you to establish a programmatic budget, perform facility assessments, and develop financing models for your capital spend. We can also assist with presentations for key stakeholders, as well as facilitate discovery sessions for master planning.
From soliciting RFPs from economic development groups to working with real estate agents, we assist you in determining spatial needs and site requirements to select the best location for your project.
To ensure your project remains on budget, we provide project estimating, risk analyses, cost modeling, value engineering, sustainability analyses, and site inspections.
To build a strong team of qualified bidders for your project, we utilize our understanding of the bid market to solicit and pre-qualify trade contractors and manage pre-bid coordination, bid packaging, and project-specific scopes of work, bidding, and buyout.
We provide you with corrective, preventative, and predictive maintenance guidelines for your facilities, and work with you to minimize operating costs while maximizing building efficiency and performance. We provide tailored services to sites of all kinds, from offices and schools to large manufacturing plants and warehouses.
