Construction Management: Pre-Construction

Our experience has taught us that getting involved early is the key. By doing so, we are better able to understand the project as it relates to owners' needs and expectations. Over half of the jobs that we build at CFM Construction Corp. are done using this method, and the results speak for themselves. The pre-construction process involves delivery methods, accurate conceptual and detailed cost estimating, site evaluation, logistics planning, scheduling and selection of the best building systems for a particular project. Our extensive database of completed projects provides historical analysis and also allows us to finish our jobs on time and as efficiently as possible. We develop and maintain a master schedule, which identifies long lead times, as well as design milestones, permits and approvals, early bid package and phasing. Our goal during the pre-construction process is to eliminate surprises once construction begins, and to build the project as cost effectively as possible. This is a collaborative effort between all parties; including the owner, architect, design-build consultants, structural and mechanical engineers, utility companies and local municipalities.
