We believe that the Preconstruction Phase is one of the most crucial phases in the overall life of a project. Our approach is comprehensive and deliberate.
This process begins with a Partnering Meeting to gather all team members who will be involved in the design, construction and end use of the project.
A Master Schedule for the project through design and construction will facilitate the overall process.
DesCor believes strongly in the importance of providing continuous "up to the minute" cost control feedback to allow the team to Design to a Budget as opposed to Budget to a Design.
Descor prepares a Contract Document estimate and solidifies a GMP.
As the Preconstruction process moves forward, DesCor proactively checks the documents for completeness, coordination, and constructability.
DesCor develops logical and distinct trade contractor bid packages for all scopes of work.
Our approach to Value Analysis is proactive and when initiated early in the process, yields optimum results as we search out cost economies rather than reacting to cost overruns during the working drawing stages or worse yet, in the field.
Upon completion of the subcontractor bidding process, DesCor establishes a detailed Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP).
