Preconstruction

“We take a holistic approach throughout the preconstruction process and are honored to serve as trusted advisors at the table with our clients.”

~ Mark Greenwalt, Vice President – Preconstruction Services & Estimating

The ultimate success of a project is impacted long before groundbreaking — and that’s where clients say Hourigan brings the most value. The key is a comprehensive preconstruction plan that helps mitigate risks, address unforeseen issues and provides cost, quality and schedule certainty.

It all starts with a conversation, and the earlier in the process the better — even before there is a defined concept. Using visualization tools like BIM and On-Screen Takeoff (OST), we can help the owner understand assumptions and options. Leveraging specialized software and our extensive estimating database, we facilitate “what if” scenario planning to enable informed, high level decision-making early in the process and build an initial cost estimate. This sets the stage for a seamless transition into the design components of the project and creates a spirit of collaboration and understanding of scope and responsibilities among all parties from day one.
