At Gidel & Kocal Construction Company, Inc., we recognize that every aspect of the construction project is integral to the overall project’s success. That is why we prioritize construction planning from the onset. Our team offers many pre-construction services, including value engineering, design development, cost estimation and budgeting, and constructability overview. Construction planning comes before it all, as it sets the stage for all other phases of the construction process that will follow.
What is Construction Planning?
Commercial building construction is not just about coming up with the design that you want to achieve. It is also about planning what happens even before the entire construction starts. Planning needs to be completed with detailed accuracy so the actual build can go off without a hitch. This starts with having the building analyzed so that the potential plans you put together will work as intended accordingly.
Part of construction planning is analyzing existing buildings (if they exist). If it is an entirely new build, this step is of course irrelevant. Once a building analysis has been conducted, the team will review these plans and make any modifications as needed. Here at Gidel & Kocal, our goal is always to match your expectations with reality. We want to give you exactly what you’re looking for; that starts with proper construction planning.
Understanding the Importance of Construction Planning
There are two main parties in every construction project: the owners and the builders. Every job requires a hands-on approach from both in the construction planning process to ensure that everyone’s plans are aligned.
Owners are generally concerned with getting the project delivered according to the scope that was originally laid out, including specs, timelines, and budgets. Precise construction planning is the best way to ensure that everything goes according to plan.
As for builders, their goals should match those of the owners, given the fact that the owners are their clients. What’s more, it’s on them to get the job done efficiently and accurately. Certain parts of the construction process may require builders spending some of their own cash on a project and not billing the owner. This typically only occurs in instances where unexpected costs arise. Accurate construction planning can help bypass these instances and prevent the builders from having to cover additional costs.
