Commercial Pre-Construction Planning
Building Materials & System

Budget & Schedule
Pre-construction services also include: preliminary construction budgets and schedules and roadmaps that can keep you on track during your project. Based on the schematic design and engineering assessment, as well as comparable spaces, we produce an estimated budget for your project. This gives you an idea of the cost of your project and helps you discuss financing with lenders.
Once we finalize decisions on scope together, we’ll produce a preliminary construction schedule. The schedule laid out during pre-construction will help you anticipate lead times and track the sequence of construction. And, of course, this early schedule will help you gain a rough estimate of when your project will be complete.
