In the preconstruction phase, the Walter B. Davis Company’s construction team, working in tandem with the design team, can dramatically affect final costs and project scheduling.

We can typically provide a preliminary budget based on our experience with similar projects and also on project assumptions agreed upon by the team.

If the conceptual design can be built with the available funds, the design team proceeds. And, as the project progresses through design, the Walter B. Davis Company updates the budget at defined intervals; these updates help keep the project costs on track.

Schedule optimization is also a significant benefit of the preconstruction phase. Our master schedule accounts for all phases of the project, including design, permitting, bidding, construction, move-in and close-out.
