Preconstruction Services

Planning for Success

Expert preconstruction services can mean the difference between a successful project and one that never gets off the drawing table. Korsmo’s Preconstruction Department consistently saves our clients time and money by eliminating non-value-added costs in the design phase, reducing the number of changes and unexpected costs, and minimizing schedule delays during construction. We consider Preconstruction as an Owner’s early investment in the project’s success, and Korsmo holds a great responsibility to our clients to ensure they receive valuable and consistent results from their investment.

Our collaborative approach to Preconstruction Services incorporates our experience as a General Contractor into the upfront design and planning of the project. Since decisions made early in the project can have a strong impact on the final price, quality and schedule, Korsmo’s Preconstruction Department focuses directly on:

  • Thoroughly understanding your goals and objectives
  • Qualifying the project’s scope of work
  • Quantifying the project’s costs
  • Identifying and communicating of the project’s constraints (such as schedule, budget, functionality)
  • Establishing the project’s critical path schedule

Korsmo provides the following preconstruction services to our clients:

  • Value engineering (VE)
  • Long-lead item identification and acquisition
  • Lifecycle cost analysis
  • Field investigations
  • Cost estimating and budgeting
  • Design/constructability reviews
  • Project scheduling and phasing
  • Bid packaging/coordination
  • Subcontractor procurement
  • Occupant coordination
  • Code compliance
  • Permit procurement assistance

They are smart and creative in their problem solving, always challenging the design teams to find the best solution that will deliver high-functioning and cost-effective venues.
