Preconstruction services by the general contractor improves predictability and reduces cost overrun risk. At Overaa, our unique brand of preconstruction provides clients expertise from project teams with self-performing construction know-how and subcontractors from a diverse range of disciplines. Led by knowledgeable teams with access to a depth of industry leading resources, Overaa offers leadership and cost saving opportunities to improve project outcomes.
We believe preconstruction improves four essential elements of a project:
- cost control and budget management
- project collaboration and team building
- schedule management for all project phases
- value engineering and constructability recommendations
During preconstruction a major Value Engineering effort was undertaken to remove approximately $900,000 from the budget without significant change to the project program or appearance. In spite of numerous setbacks, Overaa met the client’s aggressive, 13 month schedule, and at close-out provided the client with a refund of $284,000 below the established Guaranteed Maximum Price.
