Planning a construction project starts long before the first day on the building site. Pre-construction services plan out the entire construction project and establish your expectations. A professional company should understand your budget, schedules and other details beforehand to promote a clear understanding between your team and theirs.

Gidel & Kocal Construction Company, Inc. includes a series of steps in our pre-construction process so that you feel prepared before construction begins. Learn about why these services exist and how each one can benefit you when you work with us.

The Benefits of Pre-Construction Services

Pre-construction services benefit both the client and the construction company, ensuring both parties can enjoy a smooth timeline and serving to:

  • Prevent changes later on that extend the project deadline
  • Outline the budget to avoid spending money on repairs or modifications after construction
  • Assure the quality of the project from the start
  • Develop a coherent plan of action that guides workers and clients through the process

Pre-construction services from Gidel & Kocal Construction Co., Inc. accomplish these goals and more.

Our Available Bay Area Pre-Construction Services

Design Development

Design Development is one of the earliest stages of a construction project, establishing the project goals and schematics. Together, we will examine both big picture goals and the small details related to the project.

Value Engineering

Value engineering is the careful analysis of the design features, equipment and material selections in your project to come up with alternatives that can help reduce costs without compromising quality or functionality.

Constructability Reviews

Constructability Reviews fuse the design ideas with the construction possibilities. This step verifies that the project can accomplish the outlined specifications.

Conceptual Scheduling

We create a general schedule of approximate start and end dates for each project phase. This process outlines when we should do the work and how our team will complete it.

Early Budgeting

We can help you early in the design phase to come up with a rough order of magnitude, or ROM, budget. This initial budget is done well before the project starts, usually when there is very little information known about the project. It provides the stakeholders a high-level estimate of how much the project will cost.

Cost Estimating

Cost estimating services determine the total budget needed to complete a project. With over 40 years of experience in the commercial construction industry, we are able to provide you with a clear and accurate forecast of how much your project will cost before it starts.

Plan Reviews

Plans that are poorly designed or lack detailed information can cause problems during the construction phase of the project. Conducting a plan review with all team members, prior to starting construction, helps to ensure that the plans are adequately detailed and well designed so that the project won’t run into excessive change orders and rework. During the plan review, design adjustments can also be made before spending your time and money.

Existing Facilities Analysis

Whether for remodels, building conversions, or new building purchases, we evaluate the current infrastructure to determine its suitability for your purposes. Our team looks at hazards, existing plumbing and wiring, and overall layout to determine how the project should fit in with the original building.
