Pre-Construction Services | Minnesota General Contractor

When asked to provide a cost estimate, we typically rely on the four-phased approach above, advancing to a new phase depending on the level of design detail available.

Along the way, we look to proactively uncover and share alternative methodologies - opportunities for a project to save time, resources, or capital.

Upon identification, we share how to optimize for factors like facility, season, budget, and regulations. Past examples include changes to installation sequencing, material use, or contract engagement.

Please contact us for more information.
