Make the right decisions when
you have the greatest impact.
Preconstruction services provided in the early stages of project development equip owners with the critical information necessary to make the right decisions when they have the greatest impact on the ultimate success of the project.
We work together with key stakeholders and design professionals as a collaborative partner to address program, budget, systems cost, and schedule issues during the earliest stages of design, preventing missed opportunities to improve performance in the most cost effective ways.
Several critical issues were identified during the preconstruction planning phase for The Shipley School’s campus improvement project. To resolve these issues before construction commenced, W.S. Cumby priced alternative options and coordinated work sessions with the design team to yield significant cost savings to the school.
Owners benefit from shorter timelines as opportunities for fast-tracking and phasing are well-defined and coordinated. Construction changes and cost overruns are reduced through the close interaction between project team members. The involvement of our construction team in the planning process guarantees a seamless transition into the construction phase.
Kim & Tritton’s unconventional materials, unique details and tight academic schedule required creativity and intensive collaboration with the design team to bring the residence halls to life. The project’s cost was maintained through the design process and yielded savings to the College.
