A construction project is not merely about constructing a building or renovating it. There are several other technicalities involved such as site selection or the preparation of the drawings.

This may also include things like getting permits and approvals from the appropriate authorities, hiring trades and consultants, and putting together a detailed construction plan. Ensuring that all of these steps are taken correctly and in a timely manner is critical to the success of any construction project.

As one of the top-rated commercial construction contractors in Edmonton, as part of our pre-construction consultation services, we offer expertise and resources to evaluate sites and buildings, develop concepts, provide accurate budget pricing, and explain various construction options. Our approach helps our clients and partners make better, more informed decisions resulting in expedient project delivery.

Since we have worked with a large number of clients and have an experienced team, we know exactly what a client should look for when hiring pre-construction services. In this blog, we have listed some of the traits you should look for when hiring a pre-construction partner.

Someone Who Understands Your Needs

We know that this trait sounds like a cliche that everyone throws around, however, that doesn’t make it any less important. A pre-construction partner should ask the right questions and be able to gather enough information to help them understand your needs down to a tee.

At BelVan construction, the design-build engineering and construction management team work with our clients closely right from the project’s start. This helps ensure that the design and engineering meet the specific project requirements and are cost-effective from a constructability viewpoint. We make sure your project gets completed within your budget requirements with maximum schedule efficiency.

Knows How To Optimize Phasing And Logistics

In commercial construction, the phasing plan is important to ensure that the project is completed on time and on budget. Phasing refers to the order in which the different parts of the project will be completed. In most cases, it’s necessary to complete certain parts of the project before others can begin. For example, the foundation must be in place before the walls can be built, and the walls must be constructed before the electrical rough-ins can begin.

Logistics refers to the process of getting materials and workers to the construction site. This includes figuring out where to store materials on-site, arranging for deliveries of supplies, and ensuring the proper tools and equipment are on-site at the time they are required.

A good pre-construction partner should be well aware of how to optimize phasing and logistics to minimize the likelihood of issues and delays during the construction phase of the project. They should be able to create an efficient project schedule.

Has A Qualified Team

Team members, subcontractors and suppliers significantly impact the course of the project. It can be tempting to go for the lowest bidder but it is important to understand that the cheapest option is not always the best choice.

The pre-construction partner that you choose should have a qualified and experienced team. At BelVan construction, we have a team of experts who were extensively trained before they start working with our clients.

We also have an open book policy; thus, you can be involved and stay in touch with our team members.

Over the years, our team has provided pre-construction consultation for various businesses, we offer services to individuals and businesses, including restaurants, bars, medical facilities, offices, retail stores, recreation, and public spaces.
