At milestones in the course of the pre-construction process, detailed preliminary cost estimates based on historical data will be provided and updated. Initial construction costs, as well as long term operating costs are taken into consideration. Green building products often have a slightly higher initial cost but deliver long-term savings. Such options are discussed in conjunction with the design and budgeting process.
Value Engineering / Scope Reduction:
Should there be a variance between initial designs and client’s budget, alternate materials, construction methods and potential phasing will be suggested to bring the design and budget in sync.
A schedule is prepared for the preconstruction phase indicating the timelines of each operation. In addition, a preliminary schedule is created for the construction phase. Such scheduling, assists in the calculations of project completion as well as construction loan carrying costs.
Upon completion of the client approved working drawings, the project will be offered to competitive subcontractor bid. Each bid is categorized using the same (CSI) cost codes as in the preliminary budgets.
Upon detailed review of the subcontractor’s bids, agreement of the overall scope of work and final budget with the client, a standard Owner/Contractor Agreement will be prepared.
