PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

Architectural Plans

Plan it

During the planning phase of your commercial construction project, every decision is critical to maximizing your investment.  You have a vision for your project and know the results you want to achieve when it's complete.  When you partner with an experienced and knowledgeable construction team early on, you set your project on the path to succeed. 

Our integrated and collaborative approach to Design Phase / Preconstruction Services is designed to make your construction project run as smoothly as possible, stay on schedule and come in under budget.

EARLY PROJECT PLANNING IS ESSENTIAL TO THE SUCCESSFUL EXECUTION OF YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT

Estimating

Thompson Builders' estimating team brings many decades of experience to building the most accurate and detailed construction estimates available.  They will review your project documents or conceptual designs to outline the values of all major components of your project and confirm/provide accurate budgets.  

Value Engineering

Once we have an estimate, Thompson Builders can offer value engineering alternatives to reduce cost and schedule without compromising quality. We draw from our extensive relationships with subcontractors as well as our own work forces to make recommendations based on experience.

Constructability Reviews

Detailed review of drawings and trouble shooting during pre-construction effectively identifies potential conflicts before they occur.  Careful planning reduces total construction time and costs, and ensures projects run smoothly.

Site Logistics Planning

Our teams have experience working in many settings including occupied buildings, downtown urban settings and other limited access environments. Taking the needs of our client into account, we perform a site evaluation to plan the phases of construction and staging areas effectively. This helps us ensure construction is completed safely, efficiently, and with minimal inconvenience to our client.

Design/Build

During the design/build process, we maximize the benefits of our pre-construction services by collaborating with subcontractors to draw experience from all disciplines. The design/build method shortens the overall project duration by identifying and resolving problems during design and enabling a smooth transition into construction.
