Preconstruction Services

Delphi Construction provides comprehensive preconstruction services for clients in all construction sectors.

Delphi Preconstruction Services

Delphi specializes in providing comprehensive Preconstruction (Pre-Con) services to all construction markets. We can work with both owners and architects and are able to provide these pre-construction services whether the award process leads to a negotiated project or a select bid list. We would love the opportunity to discuss your preconstruction needs and learn how we may be of help to you.

Estimating and Budget Development

Through the development of fully detailed line item by line item scopes of work for all items (regardless of the level of information available) we can use that scope as the basis of a review with all team members. Through an interactive discussion we can ensure that all anticipated scope is accurately included in the budget line items or create placeholders for yet to be defined scope. We use a blend of take offs, internal pricing, past experience, and subcontractor/supplier input to provide expert analysis and inform each budget line item. By effectively using alternates we can keep the base budget tight while allowing for the future inclusion of additional scope items as funding, bid results or contingencies may permit.

Cost Savings Strategies & Solutions

Our team will continuously compare products, building methods, differing systems, the availability of goods and labor forces, review multiple phasing and logistics approaches, and/or recommend changes to project elements early in the process before considerable time and design resources have been spent. By taking ongoing and interactive steps at each level of the design & estimate to make sure the projects costs are aligned with the project’s financial goals, we can eliminate unnecessary delays and redesign expenses.

Comprehensive Phasing/Logistics Plans

Delphi’s team of creative puzzle solvers will work with input from the project team, local authorities, and any stakeholders such as abutters or occupants. We will develop, implement, provide and update as needed – integrated phasing plans and a fully detailed construction schedule. If the project requires, Delphi will work with local authorities and jurisdictions to develop delivery schedules, traffic management plans, and other coordination items as needed.

Subcontractor Vetting

Delphi maintains an extensive list of pre-qualified firms. All of whom must pass a financial review, reference checks and have good hiring practices. Each must also have a clean safety record and carry industry standard insurance policies at appropriate levels. By hand picking subs from our master list we will align the right types of firms by market sector experience or specialty trade. We will ensure that they are the appropriate size and have the labor forces availability to perform the work if chosen.

Subcontractor Bid Analysis

We will review all proposals received for completeness of scope and an understanding of project’s schedule and requirements. We also meet with all key trades for in person scope reviews prior to any work being awarded. Delphi Estimating then stays involved and aids project management in post bid subcontractor negotiation and award of trades in order to ensure that a smooth transition of bid information, expectations, and inclusions are captured in subcontract negotiation & award.

Interface with Adjacent Departments, Properties and Government Agencies

Delphi will provide assistance as necessary to facilitate the success of the project. This includes sharing our past experience, insight, and code and regulatory knowledge. We can if desired help define regulatory strategies, provide support documentation, and meet with local, state and government agencies in order to assist the team in gaining in permitting and approvals.
