Preconstruction & Planning

Meaningful preconstruction services bring value, potential cost savings, and informed decision-making to the client while eliminating surprises to provide you with a predictable outcome. We take the value analysis process very seriously, thinking outside the box to achieve your goals with your budget and project needs in mind.

For each value analysis suggestion, we prepare a comparative value study that includes an assessment of cost and schedule impacts.
We offer a comprehensive breakdown of alternatives that weigh the cost implications and take into consideration the operational costs, product durability, and ease of operation for each suggestion.

We use proven methodology and experience to bring you the most accurate cost estimates, including:

♣   Calling upon recent SYS-CON Construction projects for comparison
♣   Utilizing relevant and regional bid information
♣   Ensuring that we are accounting for temporary measures
♣   Incorporating comprehensive phasing plans that could impact project cost and duration
♣   Pricing a variety of options to streamline the decision-making
♣   Breaking down the estimates by system or program area
♣   Using forethought to present options that do not limit future plans
