Preliminary Budget Proposals
How do you set a construction budget? Just like any other budget, it requires a lot of research and experience. Budgets for new commercial construction or even tenant improvement allowances must take many things into account, such as current market values, project scope, and more.
Our team helps create detailed cost estimates and budget proposals to help inform your project. We start by understanding project goals to home in on core objectives for your project. Then, our budget experts help create a general idea of construction costs to help you define a budget for your project. We complete this before design even begins to help ensure designs suit your needs and your budget.
We also perform a line-by-line cost review with our design team to make sure we can complete your project within budget. This is an ongoing collaborative process to find solutions to help meet your expectations and your budget. Cost reviews are detailed and meticulous to help guard you against unexpected overages during the design build process.
Cost reviews include combing through documents and conducting cost analyses while comparing them to your budget and project scope. This helps ensure your project design can be built to your quality standards within expected timelines and budgets.
Value engineering is more than just reducing costs. Unfortunately, many other contractors view value engineering as simply identifying areas where you can reduce costs by swapping out quality materials and methods with “cheaper” alternatives. This can lead to many issues, including lower quality deliverables and even safety hazards.
Instead, value engineering focuses on finding the best value, which means the lowest cost for the same quality and scope. In many cases, there may be a more cost-effective way to achieve the same result. Our experts offer the out-of-the-box thinking needed to help improve value without skimping on results.
We also take care of pre-construction submittal packages for your project. Submittals are sets of items for certain project specs. For example, a submittal package for plumbing specs for your new commercial construction project might include design plans, safety plans, schedules, material samples, and other related documents. These packages help with the planning phase to ensure designs and plans meet project goals, quality standards, scope, and more.
Our team makes submittal packages simple. We organize submittals in intuitive ways to make them easy to use and review for accuracy and quality. We are here to make pre-construction planning convenient and straightforward for your project.
Insurance Certificate Packages
Insurance helps protect you from liability during the construction process, so it’s essential to ensure contractors are appropriately insured for your project. Insurance certificate packages include all the necessary insurance documents for your construction project. For instance, packages include things like the certificate of insurance, contact information for the insurance agent, and information on how to file a claim if need be. These packages help give you peace of mind that liability for your business is limited during construction.
Our team gathers all this information and organizes it in a simple way so you can rest easy knowing everything is taken care of. We are here to make the pre-construction process smooth so you can get started on your project as soon as possible.
Construction schedules are incredibly important for efficient construction. Schedule development includes not only timing, but sequence for different parts of construction. Scheduling has a huge impact not only on deadlines, but also project costs. Therefore, it’s important to have a comprehensive, detailed schedule for your project.
Our construction scheduling specialists help develop accurate schedules to ensure your project is completed on time, on budget, and within scope. We provide your project with a “roadmap” to ensure successful completion. In addition to detailed scheduling, we also work to develop contingency plans for “what if” scenarios that could derail schedules without proper planning.
