We have found that proactive involvement during the pre-construction phase has the greatest potential influence on a project’s final outcome. At the core of our pre-construction services approach is the belief that your project should benefit from our years of experience.
A comprehensive pre-construction process includes three critical elements:
We’ve had the opportunity to learn from every project we’ve been involved in, and we are committed to working with you and your team to leverage the full benefit of our expertise. During pre-construction, our goal is not limited to simply defining project parameters such as cost and schedule. While this is an important step for every project, of even greater importance is our ability to help identify and actively plan for construction issues that may place the budget and schedule objectives at risk. Therefore, we believe it is important that we establish ourselves as an integral part of your team very early in the process.
At Makatura Construction, Inc., we provide a full-suite of pre-construction services to ensure all project issues are discussed and addressed well before the shovel is put in the ground. These services include:
Cost Estimating - Approximation of the probable total cost of a project, computed on the basis of available information. Four common types of cost estimates are: (1) Conceptual Estimate: rough approximation of cost within a reasonable range of values prepared for information purposes only. This is also often called “a ball park estimate”. (2) Preliminary budget estimate: approximation based on well defined (but preliminary) cost data and established ground rules. (3) Proposal estimate: based on cost data sound enough for entering into a binding contract (4) Not to Exceed Estimate: maximum amount required to accomplish a given task, based on firm cost estimate.
Makatura Construction, Inc.’s mission – “building lasting client relationships by providing unparalleled service and attention to detail in both management and construction.”
