a Detailed Plan


Working alongside a project without preconstruction is a missed opportunity to maximize savings in time and cost. With a 12-person in-house preconstruction services department, PJ Dick provides project estimating to evaluate a project’s constructability while identifying the best means for achieving the budget while maintaining design intent. Key to the preconstruction process is collaboration. Our staff work together with the architect and owner to make early decisions that minimize the number of change orders during construction. This is an iterative process; we take pride that our staff are flexible and open-minded while being realistic. We want you, the owner, to achieve your ultimate goals at the best value. And we know that if we do our job well during preconstruction, building the project will be easy! Our preconstruction team uses a variety of tools when planning, evaluating:

•  Risk
•  Safety
•  Schedule
•  Cost
•  Quality
•  Logistics
•  Procurement
•  Lean Innovation
•  Environmental Concerns
•  Energy Efficiency
•  Prefabrication Opportunities
