It’s important to consider many factors when starting a construction project. Some of them include project scope, project feasibility, identifying potential issues, and predicting various costs. Without a well-thought-out plan, it’s easy for the job to go off the rails. Forming a pre-construction plan will help set you up for success.
What Is Pre-Construction Planning?
Pre-construction planning is the cornerstone of a successful construction project. It explores every aspect and possibility of the job to help set expectations and provide reliable information. The knowledge gathered from this process enables the team to make informed decisions on crucial project components such as goals, budget, and scheduling. Here are a few of the benefits associated with the pre-construction process.
Helps Provide Clarity
Construction is a complex process that requires transparency. Every member of the team should know what is expected and should be kept up-to-date on new developments such as a change in vision. Pre-construction services define project scope, scheduling, and budget, which helps with creating a clear outline for each team member to follow.
Regardless of how incredible an idea you have, if it’s not feasible, it’s not happening. Ultimately, feasibility will have the final say on what you can and can’t do. This is determined by various limitations such as budget, size of the construction site, time constraints, and more. The pre-construction phase not only takes all of these into account, but also provides an opportunity to brainstorm innovative, feasible alternatives to existing ideas.
Life is unpredictable; problems will always pop up unexpectedly. However, taking the time to identify concerns and potential problems beforehand can help prevent headaches in the future. Typical construction problems include acquiring permits, site evaluation, and scheduling issues. With pre-construction services, you can streamline tasks to ensure smooth and successful execution.
A construction project can’t be completed without funding. Accurately defining goals is also difficult if you don’t know what your budget is. During the planning phase, investors can get estimates on the various expenses that are expected to come with the project. Having this knowledge on hand, investors will have a solid understanding of how much funding is needed. It also allows investors to make adjustments before construction begins, saving time and money.
