Preconstruction & Initial Design Coordination
We encourage you to engage Thrash Commercial very early in the life of your project. We need to meet, talk, and communicate so that we can listen to your goals and desires. Because of our wealth of estimating experience, an initial meeting can often produce a preliminary cost estimate for you if we have some idea of the type and square footage of the building and the type of site we will be working on. After the initial meetings we can assist with site selection to minimize cost, gathering of soils data and bearing capacity of soils, coordination of production of initial surveying and design drawings necessary to start budget pricing, and gathering of initial design requirements from the government entities regulating the construction.
Preconstruction has been where many of our past projects have started. We just start out talking with a potential customer and then begin to help them start the complex process of getting a project to the point that a building permit can be obtained. This is not a simple or easy process as it was in days gone by. The building codes that regulate construction have become more complex, and the governments regulating the construction have put more rules and regulations in place that have to be followed. We find that many times the actual construction is the easy part of the project. The hard work comes in during Preconstruction where many problems arise that have to be solved. It takes experience and know how to solve these problems, and that is what Thrash Commercial offers to you.
