The pre-construction phase is the most important stage of a construction project. Decisions made during this phase can significantly affect the budget, schedule and quality of a project. Pre-construction services provide the owners with an early analysis of the effects that materials, equipment systems, techniques and schedules will have on project time and cost. By properly planning the project during pre-construction, surprises in the field during the construction phase can be eliminated.
