In our experience, pre-construction services can be the most effective means for an educational client to control scope, budget and the educational program needs required in a new or renovated facility. It is also the most underutilized component on most educational projects. Whether as a standalone service or as part of a more comprehensive program, an investment in Capital Performance Management’s expertise will provide project that is within your established budget and achieves the programs goals without sacrificing quality.
In many case pre-construction is simply left to the architect. However, when incorporated with Capital Performance Management’s specialized knowledge you gain the ability to establish a priority matrix of alternatives that are well conceived and supported by costs that aid in decisions and direction early in the conceptual stage of development.
Every pre-construction decision determines the success of a project. This is where the program is defined, various scenarios examined, quality control of the documents assured, and budget controls implemented.
While our pre-construction services are typically incorporated as part of more comprehensive services we recognize education client can benefit from unbiased input and representation of their interests prior to the receipt of bids.
Our pre-construction services are focused on:
- Program continuity and scope containment.
- Confirmation of budgets.
- Examining operational and maintenance issues as part of value management.
