The preconstruction process makes for the most cost-effective impact overall.

Project Planning

This stage accounts for all the planning required prior to field implementation – that is, concocting a plan that can be made, tested, and confirmed all before any shovels hit dirt.

Our most successful projects are assembled in this manner.

MWLBE Staffing & Subcontractor Hires

If diversity and representation is of importance to you, partnering with MJ Settelen is a woman-owned business that fits the bill. We meet Minority, Woman, and Local Business Enterprise Policy (MWLBE) staffing requirements as well as carrying out the review and hiring process for all needed subcontractors.

Design and Constructability Review

Before a single shovel hits dirt, a constructability review and existing conditions survey (when applicable) is necessary to ensure the site on which you wish to build is suitable. We will also verify the current condition of existing buildings.

Preconstruction Saves Time and Money

No matter your industry or type of construction project, investing in preconstruction services can save you significantly in the long run as you’re less likely to re-budget or revise the plan once construction begins.

Budgeting & Scheduling

Preconstruction also involves budgeting. By developing a detailed plan upfront that includes building material recommendations, permitting, as well as coordination with local utilities and public transportation, it’s possible to flesh out a budget and schedule that meets your needs. We also handle the identification and solicitation of early bidding and procurement and pre-purchasing opportunities during this stage.
