Importance of Pre-Construction Planning

We’ve worked on construction projects of all sizes, and if there are two things that every client desires, it’s for their project to be completed on time and within budget. According to ConstructConnect, inadequate planning, scope creep, and failure to communicate are among the top 5 reasons construction projects fail. With more than 1,000 completed projects throughout the past 60 years, we’ve found that one of the main ways we can ensure a successful construction project from start to finish is through pre-construction planning

Our company is founded on the promise of building community value into each project, delivering professional expertise, exceptional customer service, and quality construction. One of the ways we’re able to build in value at the initiation of each project is through our proven pre-construction planning services. This process involves taking strategic steps to ensure each project is successful and that we’re meeting all of our client’s requirements. Our pre-construction planning process involves working with our team of construction experts to develop:

  • Cost estimates and budgets
  • Construction feasibility review
  • Competitive subcontractor identification 
  • Safety analysis 
  • Value engineering and analysis
  • Entitlements (if required)

3 Benefits of Pre-Construction Planning

By planning ahead, we’re able to meet – and often exceed! – our client’s needs while also providing significant savings that can be redirected into the project’s scope, as needed. Here are some of the other ways our pre-construction planning services can benefit our clients. 

1. Clarity

Before we begin any project, it’s important to have specific objectives in mind. This clarity will help ensure that our team is able to bring your vision to life accurately and cost-effectively throughout the duration of the project. Our pre-construction planning services can also help define your scope of work and develop a reasonable timeline to ensure transparency and that our client’s expectations are met. A clear scope will also help create an accurate budget and allow us to make changes before the project begins. As the cost of materials continues to increase, budget planning is more important than ever! 

2. Error-Prevention

One of the biggest ways our pre-construction planning services can save our clients money and frustration is by anticipating issues before construction even begins. There are a multitude of factors to consider before beginning construction, including permit requirements, capacity, scheduling, etc. During pre-construction, we’ll address any issues relating to these factors and address them preemptively to ensure the project is completed as smoothly as possible. Also, a well-designed pre-construction plan can help minimize errors and mistakes being made during the construction process. Our pre-construction plan acts as a roadmap, guiding our team to reduce the risk of re-work so that we can save our clients time and resources. 

3. Greater ROI

The main goal of incorporating pre-construction planning is to take a proactive approach toward cutting costs and minimizing mistakes that can lead to unnecessary expenses. By doing this, we can help our clients maximize their ROI and on-time project completion!
