Preconstruction Services

Preconstruction Services

O誰eal痴 preconstruction services provide a formal approach for assisting our clients in developing scope, cost, and schedule to execute their capital projects. These services are client-specific and are tailored to meet the particular requirements of the project.

A Project Director will be assigned and will have overall responsibility for the preconstruction effort and provide the client with a single point of contact. 

At the kick-off of a preconstruction effort, the project team is assembled to review the project, the necessary design deliverables, the format of the deliverables and the time frame. This team consists of representatives from engineering, construction, procurement, project controls and estimating. Based on your requirements for the cost estimate, the following are established:

  • Preliminary design documents
  • In-house estimate and/or marketplace/subcontractor pricing
  • Level of detail required for the schedule
  • Project execution plan (method of contract, construction, procurement)
  • Options and alternates
  • Client痴 documentation and cost requirement

As preliminary design progresses, constructability reviews are held to determine the best means and methods to deliver the project. Status review meetings will also be held at increments appropriate to the overall time frame. Depending on the size of the project, a collaborative website may be set up to facilitate sharing of information between all parties.

Upon completion of preconstruction, the client will be presented with the project scope, preliminary design deliverables (drawings, sketches, specs., etc.), a detailed cost estimate, an integrated project schedule, and an execution plan. A contracting approach and/ or proposal for the complete project delivery may also be provided.
