What is PRE-Construction? An Ever Perspective

PRE-Construction services are used in planning a construction project before the actual construction begins. It is considered to be part of construction project management. It can provide owners with a formal approach for developing scope, cost, and schedule to execute capital projects. This is where we ensure a good foundation for the project.

  • Create project program identifying your needs and expectations
  • Finalize conceptual size, appearance and material quality of building
  • Create conceptual floor plans with the emphasis on production process flows
  • Finalize project team members including design consultants and inspectors

What does the process entail?
First, we meet with the client to determine where in the process they are of defining the project. Then we find out what their objectives are for PRE-Construction and what questions/issues they need to resolve.

The EVER team then assesses the level of effort required to get the client to the next step of their process (described in step 1) and the level of accuracy required by the client. We’ll define the deliverables needed to get the client to the determined point and the time frame required to do so.

What are the benefits of the PRE-Construction effort?
The main benefit is a firm project scope, schedule, and cost estimate for the owner. The cost estimate depends on the level of accuracy needed by the client. The PRE-Construction process is useful to evaluate the constructability of the project and identify opportunities for value engineering. We can also provide the owner with the following deliverables:

  • Project scope
  • Execution plan
  • Risk analysis
  • Constructability review
  • Cash curve
  • Integrated Project Schedule
  • Engineering
  • Evaluations as specified by client
  • Basis of design
  • Procurement plan
  • Equipment list
    • Options for alternative cost-saving equipment
    • Analysis of different equipment approaches
  • P&IDs (piping and instrumentation diagrams)
  • Electrical
    • Electrical loads
    • Single-line diagram
    • Instrument list
    • Execution plan
  • General arrangements
  • Site plan and site evaluation
  • Evaluation of decisions to be made such as expansion/upfit versus new facility
  • Analysis of the manufacturing process and product
  • Suggestions such as manufacturing raw materials versus buying from supplier
  • Utility Diagrams

These deliverables are used in the next project phase or archived for use when the project economics are justified.

What are the primary benefits to the owner?
There are a number of benefits for the owner. Many of our clients use our PRE-Construction process as the basis for their capital project appropriation process. Most importantly, the owner has a defined basis to make an informed decision. The EVER PRE-Construction process takes out many of the unknowns of a project and reduces risks for the owner. We can also identify areas for potential cost savings. The clients we work with like to evaluate the different scenarios upfront and have a defined path to construct the project prior to funding approval.
What are the costs of a PRE-Construction effort?
The cost of PRE-Construction is typically 1% – 3% of the Total Installed Cost (TIC) of the project, depending on the complexity and amount of work needed to meet the objectives of the PRE-Construction effort.

How long does it take?
Depending on the scope of the PRE-Construction effort, it can take anywhere from 2 to 12 weeks which is very quick considering the amount of value added.

What type of impact will PRE-Construction typically have on the overall final project in terms of schedule and costs compared to traditional methods?
We have seen PRE-Construction efforts have a significant impact on the overall project, and save the owner significant time and money. Since we determine the cost and schedule of the project upfront; we can reduce the number of changes, unexpected costs, and variations of schedule during the project; we can identify early where possible problems will occur; and we can better identify cost savings opportunities. In addition, we also assume the cost risk once the project is funded.

How can you guarantee costs?
We maximize our design effort and focus on critical items that will have the most impact on the cost and schedule, and then we go to the market for pricing. We don’t just rely on historical cost data. In addition, we tap into our firm’s experience and expertise working on similar projects. This experience is vital to our confidence in offering guaranteed costs.

How does EVER PRE-Construction process deliver value to the customer?
The EVER PRE-Construction process defines costs, schedule, and scope for the owner, while reducing risks. Owners are better equipped to make informed decisions about their capital investments. We are able to provide owners with the proper documentation they need to obtain project approval and funding. Our clients regularly use the EVER process to help decide to go or no go on the project.

What are some examples of issues that can be resolved during the PRE-Construction process?
There’s a whole range of unique issues we can address. Some of the most common include:

  • Site selection and requirements
  • Go / No Go – (Project feasibility)
  • Equipment selection (Option analysis)
  • Options for the schedule to avoid obstacles such as critical equipment deliveries, planned production, weather, holidays, etc.
  • Evaluation of utilities
  • Evaluation of soil conditions
  • Identify permitting requirements and issues early on
  • Value engineering options and building material analysis
  • Cost savings options and constructability reviews

The PRE-Construction process provides owners with enough information to evaluate and begin site selection.

Cost Planing

Working closely with Architects, building design professionals, project managers and building owners, EVER offers tailored budget and cost planning advice.

Cost planning of construction projects has been used for over 50 years to provide a methodology for keeping control of a capital build project.

It provides a means of controlling the design process to meet the budgetary requirements of the client. It enables the quantity surveyor, with the design team, to design a building to a cost, rather than costing a design after it has been completed.

The control of costs can only be achieved through the actions of the whole project team, including the client. It is the role of the quantity surveyor, using cost planning techniques, to facilitate this and achieve the client’s requirements within the agreed budget.

Budget advice, guidance and cost planning reports are provided on architecturally designed residential, community, hospitality & commercial projects.

Construction Management At-Risk (CMAR)

Construction Management At-Risk (CMAR)

Construction management at Risk is an innovative approach  to construction project delivery. CMAR presents a cost-effective alternative to the traditional design-bid-build process. The CMAR will save your money by reducing the time in your construction project.

Role of the CM at Risk

Under a construction management-at-risk approach, the property owner or agency selects a contractor to consult based the contractor’s previous experience and fees, rather than a bid. This shift in approach stems from the recognition that specialist subcontractors take on a significant role during construction, and the consulting contractor brings an expert understanding of how that impacts a project. The consulting contractor provides a number of functions during the design phase, including constructability reviews, estimates and even product specifics to aid in developing cleaner designs. The property owner and the consulting contractor settle on a fixed price for the project, called a guaranteed maximum price. Once an agreement is struck, the consulting contractor transitions to the role of general contractor and construction begins.

The CMAR Services include

  • Managing all subcontracts during the predevelopment stage

The CMAR Services may also include

  • Construction Schedule
  • Project Budget
  • Cash Flow Analysis
  • Discussion and acceptance of Means and Methods
  • Value Engineering
  • Cost Projects
  • and it may also offer the owner the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) alternative.
  • Construction Schedule
  • Project Budget
  • Cash Flow Analysis
  • Discussion and acceptance of Means and Methods

Benefits of CMAR

The CMAR would offer the owner the following benefits:

  • Project risk is passed to the CM, reducing the potential owner’s risks
  • Manage and find alternative and balanced construction schedules
  • Full pre-construction services available
  • Value engineering and cost analysis with the alternative of the GMP.
  • The engineer of record can be designed as the CMAR firm
  • Reduce the construction time and will be the liaison between the A/E and the construction manager.
  • Offer another professional and expert that will be focused on the construction progress
  • Increase level of participation between the A/E, contractor and the owner
  • Increased cost control as the construction budget will be discussed as an open book relationships with the owner.
  • Prepare bid packages
  • Prepare conceptual and detailed estimates
  • Utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) to ensure constructability of the design while minimizing cost and schedule
  • Assist the Owner in closing out the various contracts and provide records for retention
