Pre-construction services

During pre-construction services (including estimating and value engineering) the Project Estimator will manage the project.


During construction we will staff the project with a full time Project Manager and Superintendent.

Senior Management

It is important to note that through the life of the project the president of the company will closely monitor the budget and schedule along with the quality of the construction including the turnover.

Project Manager (100% assigned to the project)

  • Construction management and cost control
  • Review of subcontractors, subcontractors' claims, submittals, etc.
  • Value engineering
  • Schedule management

Superintendent (100% assigned to the project)

  • Primary job site authority
  • Coordination of subcontractors
  • Overall job site supervision
  • Quality control/safety management with independent authority concerning safety

Value Engineering

As part of our preconstruction services we thoroughly analyze the project requirements with the goal of identifying Value Engineering opportunities. We provide cost comparisons on alternative structural, plumbing, heating, electrical systems, and architectural assemblies. Following is an outline of components that we investigate.

Foundation options

  • Deep foundation - drilled pier
  • Driven pile soil treatment
  • Mat foundation
  • Spread footing

Structural Options

  • Metal frame
  • Wood frame
  • Concrete

Individual unit metering versus vertical stack plumbing design

Floor and wall assembly options to meet sound and fire requirements, etc.


Interior and exterior finish alternates

Flooring options

Door types

Hardware levels

Exterior materials

Cabinet and countertop options

Windows specification and cost

Waterproofing systems

Anything that has possible alternate ways of being done is explored to be sure the owner can make sound decisions based on cost, durability, quality and warranty factors
