Preconstruction Services
(a.k.a. Integrated Services)

As the industry evolves, the term preconstruction is becoming “old school,” a misnomer. In today’s reality, preconstruction refers to the diverse menu of integrated services that precede the first shovel hitting the ground and carry through – at different degrees – throughout the entire evolution of each project.

Our specialists draw upon an arsenal of best practices and deep experience in:
  • Virtual design
  • Estimating
  • Existing conditions analysis
  • Constructability analysis
  • Managing value
  • Scheduling and phasing
  • Reviewing constructability
  • Managing risk
  • Preparing subcontractor packages
Value Management

Kitchell’s leave-no-stone-unturned approach identifies areas where unnecessary costs can be removed while ensuring quality meets or exceeds owner requirements. What is the best value of structural, skin, mechanical, and other systems? What is the feasibility, construction cost, and life cycle cost impact of alternate construction materials or processes? At Kitchell, value does not mean cutting corners or costs. Sometimes, it may mean spending more, adding scope or expending more effort initially. Or exchanging value so money saved “here” can be added “there.”
