Construction Project Consulting/Pre-Construction Services
We assist our clients with the transformation of ideas into a well-conceived strategy that emphasizes results. Our pre-construction planning strategies use an open-book, team approach to organize all the interrelated elements of a project into a logical sequence.
Pre-construction services begin in the conceptual stages of projects that require sophisticated planning and strategies. Before construction has begun, Harvey creates a master plan for the project – including schedule, cost estimating, materials and methods. We perform pre-construction services on approximately 70 percent of our projects. Our clients realize that investing in this stage returns a smoother project with fewer unknowns and better overall results.
The value of hiring Harvey to do project consulting is the opportunity to understand how market conditions will affect your construction project before making any significant investments. In most cases, this phase takes place before there are even drawings. Pre-construction consulting helps you understand whether you’re over budget – before you’ve spent any money.
Harvey’s schedules, budgets and recommendations are based on recent and historical cost information; schedule information; completed construction experience; subcontractor input; and current market pricing. The project cost and phasing input we offer relative to the project is accurate, cost effective and in the best interest of the stakeholders and the project overall.
