Programming & Planning

As a sturdy foundation is critical to a solid building proper programming and planning is critical to a solid project. These efforts often pay huge dividends later on. Through an exhaustive process of information gathering our Team ensures that all programming information, scheduling, phasing and budgeting pertinent to a project is brought forward, analyzed and organized according to project relevance. Our planners utilizing both our designer’s and our builder’s perspectives will work with a project’s stakeholders to ensure that the decisions made during this crucial period are made with the best and most complete information available. The goal being to maximize a project’s potential while ensuring schedule requirements and providing cost surety.

Pre-Construction services apply to projects currently in the design and development stages. PRIMEbusiness believes that regardless of delivery method, clear and coordinated construction documents are the heart of a successful project. Achieving this goal starts with solid pre-construction procedures. Clear documents and a detailed schedule greatly reduce a project’s exposure to change orders and occupancy delays. Looking at a set of Documents from a Contractor’s perspective PRIMEbusiness assists the Design Team in presenting similar ideas presented in the design in a more buildable way, and verifying that the drawings and specifications are complete, biddable and buildable. Furthermore, our Team visits each project site, looking first hand at the project site and applying this knowledge to our review. We believe this extra level of service ensures that comments brought forward are pertinent to project success.

In terms of costs, PRIMEbusiness creates estimates for entire projects, or for specific systems within a project. Verifying Scope and reconciling that scope against the budget is essential to project success; regardless of delivery method. Our team can look at the initial steps of a project, identify issues, and recommend appropriate changes, all with the goal of increasing efficiency and cost-effectiveness. If a project needs a budget adjustment, PRIMEbusiness’s Team can assist with Value Engineering ideas and assist in the implementation of accepted design revisions with the project stakeholders.

Our extensive history in the construction business has allowed us to accumulate ample project information, covering a multitude of project types and scales. We often incorporate this data in our Document Reviews and Constructability Studies. We do Forensic Studies of Changes, to see frequent causes of change orders and how they can be reduced. When disputes arise on a construction project, we can assist with resolving issues in a timely and balanced manner utilizing this history as back up and reference material; providing validity to our recommendations.
