Pre-Construction Services

The biggest obstacles to transitioning a project from concept to construction are runaway expenditures. RMC's disciplined and comprehensive approach streamlines this transition. We manage the budget development process, provide the architect with cost and method alternatives, and monitor the availability and compatibility of all systems.

The essence of the negotiated project is that RMC will accept the responsibility of project costs and scheduling restraints substantially before all risks are defined. Therefore, RMC treats the Pre-construction Phase with the same enthusiasm and aggressiveness as we do the Construction Phase.

We classify the two main services offered during the Pre-Construction Phase as the Project Development Services and Design – Build Services.

RMC Constructors  uses customized estimation software that is one of the most advanced and accurate estimating programs in the industry. We have evolved our program over the past 28-years to reflect changing trends in labor, technology, pricing and efficiency techniques. The output from the pre-construction process serves as a baseline for allocating resources and assigning values to the construction phase. In this way, a consistent cost effective analysis is applied to the whole process.
