PRECONSTRUCTION

AIMS’s expertise encompasses all phases of construction, from pre-planning / preconstruction through project close-out. We maximize front-end planning in order to reduce problems during project execution. By focusing our skills on project pre-planning and preconstruction, our leadership and insight provides significant benefits in accurate budgeting, phasing, system selection and constructability. We go beyond the typical discussion of project goals to understand constraints, including funding requirements, hazardous materials, existing or new equipment, existing operations and departmental adjacencies, and revenue cycles. Owners routinely recognize the benefits of our proactive approach to preconstruction with real value delivered through:

  • Site investigations, for a detailed understanding of existing conditions
     

  • Scheduling and phasing, particularly in complex phased interior renovations
     

  • Cost management, from concept budgets to system selection comparisons evaluating life cycle costs and long-term value of maintenance, durability and energy management
     

  • MEP coordination, including BIM clash detection, to evaluate existing infrastructure capacity, location and proposed routing
     

  • Constructability, to evaluate proposed systems and materials and recommend alternative solutions
