Importance of Preconstruction Assistance

There are many steps in the process of constructing a new building, roadway, or other encompassing space where everything from the ground up needs to be planned.

Preconstruction is one of the first steps, and it’s an important one to ensure that a construction project is useful and functional, well-designed, environmentally friendly, cost-effective, following local and state regulations, and is long-lasting. When you offer preconstruction assistance like we do at Tucker Paving, you know that the better the planning, the better the construction project’s end outcome. 

What is Preconstruction Assistance?

Preconstruction assistance is part of the typical construction project management. It refers to the planning, controlling, and coordinating a construction project, and there are a variety of levels of assistance. The concept arose out of construction cost estimating practices that were a part of the design-bid-build construction model, but preconstruction assistance can encompass estimating activities and a lot more.

This type of assistance can include feasibility studies, design development, cost-estimating, environmental impact estimation, local and state law considerations, material option comparisons, material estimations, value engineering, value analysis, scheduling, constructability reviews, design costs, permitting, land acquisition, and life-cycle costs.
