LET'S BUILD...

a Detailed Plan

PRECONSTRUCTION

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

ADDING VALUE TO YOUR PROJECT

Preconstruction-1-1

Early Budgeting
Estimators will work with
designers and owners to
evaluate project’s cost while
maintaining design intent.

Preconstruction-2-2

Value Engineering
Our goal is to identify
building components and
methods that bring you
the best value, including
energy efficiency, ease of
maintenance, and lifecycle
costs.

Preconstruction-3-1

Logistics Planning
Logistics planning inludes
minimizing disruption to
the project community.
We will work closely with
stakeholders to develop
a site-friendly plan that
focuses on safety and
accessibility.

Preconstruction-3-1

Schedule Optimization
Team members will identify
methods that enhance
the schedule without
compromising quality. This
can include prebabrication,
alternative materials. or
improved construction
methods.
