Preconstruction services provide clients with a clear understanding of the project’s scope, budget, and timeline, enabling them to maintain better control over the project and make informed adjustments as needed.

 

Our Process Flow

Project Assessment

Preconstruction:

 The first step in the preconstruction process is to assess the feasibility of the project. This includes a detailed analysis of the project site, project scope, budget, and timeline.

Design Development:

Design Development:

The next step is to work with architects, engineers, and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive design that meets the client’s needs, budget, and timeline.

Cost Estimation:

Cost Estimation:

Once the design is finalized, ASI General Contractors will prepare a detailed cost estimate that includes all aspects of the project, including labor, materials, and equipment.

Value Engineering:

Value Engineering:

At this stage, ASI General Contractors will review the project design and identify opportunities to reduce costs without compromising quality or functionality. This process is known as value engineering.

Planning and Scheduling:

Planning and Scheduling:

ASI General Contractors will create a detailed project plan and schedule that outlines all tasks, milestones, and deadlines.

Permits and Approvals:

Permits and Approvals:

ASI General Contractors will obtain all necessary permits and approvals from local authorities and other regulatory agencies.

Risk Management:

Risk Management:

Throughout the preconstruction process, ASI General Contractors will identify and manage risks to ensure that the project is completed on time, within budget, and to the client’s satisfaction.

Value & Benefits

Value & Benefits

We actively collaborate with design teams early and frequently throughout the project lifecycle to align expectations, integrating design elements with scheduling and cost estimation.

Drawing upon our experience from previous projects, we, at ASI General Contractors leverage this knowledge to accurately predict building costs and set data-driven objectives. Our preconstruction services aim to assist clients in making informed decisions and guaranteeing successful project outcomes. The primary goals of our preconstruction services include identifying and resolving potential challenges, creating precise cost estimates, and devising a practical construction plan that fulfills the client’s objectives and requirements.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUT PRECONSTRUCTION SERVICES

What Are Pre-Construction Services?
Pre-construction services involve a range of activities undertaken before the start of physical construction. These services include project evaluation, cost estimation, scheduling, site analysis, risk assessment, procurement planning, and design reviews. The goal is to lay a solid foundation for the project, ensuring that all aspects are carefully planned and coordinated.
Why Are Pre-Construction Services Important?
Pre-construction services are crucial as they set the stage for a successful construction project. They help in identifying potential challenges, optimizing costs, and ensuring the project’s feasibility. Effective pre-construction planning leads to better resource management, reduced risks, and a clear understanding of the project scope and objectives.
How Do Pre-Construction Services Save Money?
By identifying potential issues early, pre-construction services help avoid costly mistakes and delays that can occur during construction. Detailed cost estimates and value engineering during this phase allow for budget optimization and cost-effective solutions, reducing the likelihood of overruns.
What Is Included in Pre-Construction Planning?
Pre-construction planning typically includes site analysis, feasibility studies, design review, budgeting, scheduling, procurement strategies, and the development of a project management plan. It may also involve obtaining permits and ensuring regulatory compliance.
How Does Pre-Construction Affect Project Timeline?
Effective pre-construction planning can streamline the construction process, leading to a more efficient timeline. It helps in identifying and addressing potential delays beforehand, ensuring that the project stays on schedule.
Can Changes Be Made During Pre-Construction?
Yes, one of the advantages of pre-construction is the flexibility it offers to make changes. Modifications in design, materials, or scope are more manageable and less costly during this phase compared to during construction.
What Is the Role of a Pre-Construction Manager?
A pre-construction manager oversees the planning and coordination of pre-construction activities. They are responsible for cost estimation, scheduling, risk assessment, and ensuring that the project plan aligns with the client’s goals and budget.
How Are Construction Costs Estimated During Pre-Construction?
Costs are estimated through detailed analysis, which includes evaluating labor, materials, equipment, and overhead costs. Estimators may use historical data, market trends, and specialized software to create accurate and comprehensive cost assessments.
