Preconstruction services are far more than simply estimating the project at various stages of design development and construction document.
This chart ranks the impact of precon across the basic project delivery methods and four basic dimensions:
- Does it provide a differentiating factor against your competition up front?
- How advanced will your preconstruction services have to be and to what depth will they be used on the project?
- How much will preconstruction capabilities and execution impact the profitability for the contractor?
- How big of a role will precon services play in project owner satisfaction?
All four of these dimensions will ultimately show up on your contractor scoreboard and should be heavily considered when you are determining your market strategy.
