The pre-construction process has a dramatic effect on how the rest of the construction project comes to fruition. Landmark Builders provides invaluable pre-construction services such as developing conceptual and schematic estimates, assessing the plausibility and construct ability of the project, and employing creative value analysis solutions. Our project management and superintendent staffs contribute substantial involvement starting from the earliest planning phase, ensuring an effortless and expert transition from pre-construction to construction. Landmark Builder’s pre-construction process aims to meet client needs and project goals by reducing construction time, resolving cost control, and eliminating unnecessary and costly changes.
When making decisions about the scope and cost of a project, effective estimating and budgeting are imperative. Landmark Builders has put extensive effort into reputable systems and training to assure accurate and uniform estimates. Our pre-construction team is working to reliably fulfill all of your estimating and budgeting needs from day one, from conceptual estimates to hard bid quotations. Landmark develops preliminary cost estimates at the initial phases of planning and schematic design, as well as definitive budget estimates as construction documents develop. In the construction phase of a project, we solicit multiple bids from various pre-qualified subcontractors and suppliers in order to provide you with the most comprehensive and competitive pricing.
In light of the vast array of potential obstacles that face any construction project, Landmark Builders is endlessly devoted to schedule control. We work one on one with our clients to create a construction schedule that is both optimal and attainable. Once the schedule is set in place, we work diligently to hit and even beat our deadlines. Our scheduling process includes various elements such as a master schedule for the overall construction process, a preliminary schedule that assists in verifying the project completion date, short interval schedules, on-site project status and review, and coordination of schedules and budgets. Through the collaboration of multiple project experts such as superintendents, project managers, trade specialists and subcontractors, Landmark Builders prepares a project schedule that has maximum assurance and achievability.
For any project, a precise and realistic budget is crucial. From the minute you choose Landmark Builders to be part of the project team, we implement a systematic cost control process that focuses on the fundamentals: concise budgeting, detailed documentation and continuous appraisal of costs in order to remain at the highest efficiency. The project manager reconstructs our initial estimate to formulate a specialty cost control budget that is used as the foundation for forecasting the project’s actual final cost. This projection report is regularly reviewed and modified based on the job’s current progress. Landmark Builders always works hard to keep costs manageable while still catering to the unique features, systems, and level of quality you have selected for your project.
As commissioning has become a fundamental component to any construction project, it has extended far beyond simply examining and adjusting systems to a more universal survey of the design, installation, and performance of major systems. Commissioning provides the necessary documentation as well as a pledged guarantee that each individual facility and its systems operate as intended and are functioning at an optimal level when you occupy the building. Commissioning from day one ensures that your project will be kept on schedule and on budget, always maintaining the integrity of the designer’s vision and the client’s operational requirements. Landmark Builders implements a fool-proof commissioning process from the start of each project, working with the design team and owner to tailor each project to exactly meet our client’s needs.
Landmark Builders takes a systematic approach to post-construction work, and we take pride in our ability to quickly close out projects while still paying close attention to details. As soon as construction begins we compile a close-out checklist which monitors required documents for final project completion such as warranties, final lien releases, and as-built drawings, ensuring that we get them at the earliest possible date.
