What’s Involved in Pre-Construction Consulting?
There are hundreds of things that can go wrong when it comes to large-scale construction projects. The best way to make sure that a project is perfectly executed is with the right plan. The best way to make the right plan? Pre-construction planning. Pre-construction planning will identify the most effective way to execute your project and make sure that the job gets done on time, on budget, and exactly as specified.
What Is Pre-Construction Consulting?
The pre-construction phase involves meeting with a design team that defines the scope of the project, prepares cost estimates, identifies potential issues, and develops a comprehensive plan that ensures your project is executed according to specifications. Commercial construction projects are too intricate to tackle without the right plan—all it takes is one mistake to knock a project off track. Even if you feel confident in your ability to execute a project, large-scale construction projects are too costly to base off confidence alone. Pre-construction planning can give you confidence backed with experience that ensures your project goes without a hitch.
What’s Included in the Pre-Construction Process?
While many are broadly familiar with pre-construction consulting, few are familiar with its specifics. Pre-construction consulting breaks down these elements of your project:
- Scope: The first thing that pre-construction will break down is the overall scope of your project. This phase should consider things like what’s included in the construction, the rough project timeline, and what will be needed for the project to be considered successful.
- Budget: After setting the objectives and understanding what would make a project be considered successful, pre-construction should create a detailed budget. This budget should consider the full requirements of your project and cover all relevant costs, including materials, labor, and overhead.
- Parameters: Once the scope and budget of the project is understood, a pre-construction team should home in on the finer details. This step should define the specific dimensions, measurements, materials, systems of your project.
- Team: One of the most common areas construction projects fail is in mismanagement of human capital. This step will organize your team and assign roles to specific people.
- Materials: While your specific type of material should be chosen by now, this step will examine the logistics involved in your materials, including ordering, transportation, delivery, and storage.
- Legal: Every serious construction project is going to require the proper permits and inspections to be accomplished. The pre-construction schedule should review these requirements and make sure you can meet them.
