Getting the most for your construction dollars begins with all parties being engaged in the process at the earliest point possible. Cost control, value engineering, meeting schedule deadlines, and optimizing efficiency are based on decisions made at the initial stages of the job. As noted in the magazine Commercial Executive, “pre-con allows the clients/owners to really explore what they are looking for and what solutions are available to best service their needs.” In fact, the article notes, a recent case study by Arizona State University showed that pre-construction “achieved a 35% cost savings and a 60% reduction in schedule.”
Through preconstruction services, a client is provided the benefit of a knowledgeable team of construction professionals that have the client’s goals in mind throughout the entire design and construction process.
This collaborative approach gives our clients the benefits of:
- Information and data to make timely, well-informed decisions
- Ensuring comprehensive tracking of project details
- Holding team members accountable
- Comprehensive decision-making for the best solution
Through preconstruction, the team is able to conduct risk management, effectively control cost, and adjust the design parameters without affecting the schedule or quality of the project.
We are able to define the impacts to the overall project, management processes, and design areas such as electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and data/information technology support systems.
Entering into any construction project without understanding such impacts can result in downtime for these systems, client concerns about the efficiency of the team, and effects on the project’s overall cost structure.
Tangible results are realized in accurate estimates which provide important information to help you maximize return on your investment.
Construction Management Experts
Attention to Every Detail
Construction management is a discipline and management system specifically created to promote the successful execution of capital projects for owners. These projects can be highly complex. Few owners maintain the staff resources necessary to pay close, continuing attention to every detail; yet these details can “make or break” a project.
