1 – PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES
Pre-Construction Services are the single most important planning tool — and an essential process — that are implemented to assure that all of the inherent variables are introduced, discussed, considered and evaluated, including budget, materials, specifications, constructability, sequencing, staging and contracting.
Pre-Construction Services integrate all the team members representing the Owner — design professionals, engineers and contractors — to fully incorporate the project goals into each team member’s plan, preparing the construction process for efficient completion within the project’s budget, schedule and quality requirements.
Pre-Construction Services provide:
- Budget Analysis
- Schedule Optimization
- Means and Methods Reviews
- Constructability Analysis
- Logistic Determinations
Key components of Pre-Construction Services are value engineering and cost engineering, where alternatives of comparable materials, equipment and processes are assessed to obtain the highest function for the lowest cost while optimizing the schedule.
Coupling the recent advancements in graphics technology with proper diligence and planning, a project can be built ‘virtually’ long before construction ever begins, effectively reducing expensive, time-consuming issues.
