Decisions made during the preconstruction phase will have a significant impact as the project progresses. Our experience in leading projects will save clients valuable time and money, and set the project on a path towards success.  During this phase we will:

  • Quickly identify the client’s priorities and expectations.
  • Assist client in defining project deliverables.
  • Develop Conceptual Budgets that will serve as the basis to control the design.
  • Lead regular project meetings and ensure that all Project Team members stay focused.
  • Develop and update project budgets as design develops.
  • Perform value engineering and compare design alternatives.
  • Develop and monitor project schedule.
  • Arrange for pre-purchase of long-lead items to ensure schedule compliance.
  • Prepare subcontractor and vendor prequalification criteria, and generate bidding interest in the project.
  • Produce bid packages and manage the subcontractor and vendor bidding and award process.
  • Establish phasing and logistics plans.
