Careful planning before the start of construction provides the foundation on which every other step is based.
At P. Agnes, Preconstruction refers to the diverse menu of integrated services that precede the groundbreaking and carry through the entire evolution of each project. Careful planning before the start of construction provides the foundation on which every subsequent step is based. Addressing critical details during preconstruction frequently results in fewer construction-phase changes, reduced construction time, and cost savings. It also ensures that the finished product meets a client’s needs.
For the best results, we work closely with the client and the design team. We develop and maintain accurate construction cost estimates as well as analyze scheduling, materials, building systems, and construction methods.
Our specialists draw upon an arsenal of best practices and seasoned experience in:
P. Agnes utilizes a massive database of cost information to price out construction projects, even when scope definition is limited. The process incorporates continuous constructability analysis, target value management, and lifecycle costing.
P. Agnes provides detailed project schedules based on project data, material leadtimes, and potential logistical challenges. Incorporating P. Agnes’ Last Planner System of a Lean approach leads to greater on-time performance in the end.
Our efficient approach to procurement and project planning is a key element of our value-added process during preconstruction. Coordinating long-lead items and clearly defining scopes add to an economical approach as well.
