The pre-construction methodology differs from the traditional approach for completing construction projects. The traditional approach relies on seeking out bids and then ultimately choosing the best bid and beginning the building process from there. Pre-construction services differ in that a design team which includes not only the general contractor, but the architects, engineers and designers, will work collaboratively to outline the construction project from start to finish. Pre-construction services are becoming more mainstream due to the obvious benefits to both the client, as well as the company providing the services. And while pre-construction services can happen at various levels of the design phase, it is recommended to implement these services early in the concept design phase of the project to ensure seamlessness throughout.
