Preconstruction is part of the planning stage of a construction project. It involves the definition of the project, identification of potential issues, planning and scheduling, scope, cost estimation, and analysis of needs for the construction project.

Proper preconstruction can help you locate time and money-saving opportunities and help inform future decision-making. These services are also a helpful tool for the project owner to better understand the project before committing to a general contractor. It is typically a standalone service and fee separate from construction costs.
