Pre- Construction Services.
Our experienced team of Cost Engineers and Quantity Surveyors will assist during the early schematic stage through design development in order to produce comprehensive trade budgets that accurately reflect the scope of work and the sequence of construction. The planning stage of a project will greatly determine the project’s success. The more time spent on planning, the better the quality of the preconstruction. Our early involvement will help to establish project controls at the beginning of design development, addressing all issues that affect the constructability, cost and schedule of a project. Value management is offered throughout the project providing optimum value and quality. Getting involved early in the process allows us to identify long lead items that may impact the project schedule and , in some cases, pre-purchase those items so they do not adversely affect the schedule. During this phase, we would also solicit bids from subcontractors, level all submissions and make recommendations to the client.
