Cost Estimating and Preconstruction Planning

Working together increases the team synergy and passion, which results in a high-energy collaborative team effort capable of making confident, informed decisions.  In addition to project management and leadership, the services M3cm provides during estimating services include:

Cost Estimating – Accuracy in estimating at every phase of a project is critical to ensuring budget certainty throughout the design process for any construction project.  M3cm’s expertise in providing cost estimates at each phase of design includes initial Feasibility & Conceptual Phase, Schematic Design Phase, into Design Development and ultimately through the final Construction Documents phase. This allows for consistency in maintaining a client’s budget projections and eliminates unforeseen budget shortcomings.

Design Management – In conjunction with costing at each phase of design, engaging M3cm’s services during design allows for 3rd party evaluations of many of the building systems and building materials to be analyzed to inform both schedule and budget.  Providing the design team and owner the necessary information as early as possible reduces design rework and is paramount to keeping the project within budget and schedule.

Planning & Constructability Reviews –  Provide detailed schedule analysis in parallel with each of the design phases.  Develop program logistics and evaluate space planning with the user groups, architects and Engineers.   Provide site logistics planning and identify life safety requirements, egress needs and related site specific issues.
