Once the initial meeting is completed, the contractor can visit the site and develop a design and layout. Building construction involves a considerable quantity of material and budget, and it is easy for costs to overrun. Once the planning and structural detailing is done, the construction estimator shares the details.


Field Assessment

Another key pre-construction stage is the field assessment, an in-depth exploration of the site on which a project is planned. This often includes detailed conditions including topography, other existing structures, site utilities, property lines, easements and more. Additionally, town/city and/or assembly zoning and parking ordinances are identified.

The goal in this stage is to define site constraints that your builder must either work within or overcome.
