Construction Project Estimating & Pre-Construction Services
Beacon is regularly retained by banks, developers, project owners, and other entities involved in construction project financing to provide a wide range of pre-construction-related services (such as project plan review, cost estimation, and other services).
Beacon's team has been retained to provide pre-construction project services on numerous projects, including:
- Trade-by-trade estimates (using CSI format and protocol)
- Design Development Estimating / Value-Engineering Services
- Change Order Estimating / Cost Dispute Resolution
During the feasibility stage of a project, Beacon works with developers, owners, banks and other project stakeholders to provide budget estimates based on conceptual or schematic drawings. This estimate can be critical for determining if a project is financially viable. During the design phase, Beacon’s cost engineers can work with the project's designers to provide periodic cost estimates. Based upon this cost analysis, Beacon’s staff can work with design professionals to develop value-engineering solutions to stay within the client’s desired budget. As a project moves forward, Beacon’s cost engineering staff can assist clients in the preparation of change orders and claims. Based on our historical cost database, Beacon can provide unparalleled support during the change order and claim process.
