ASSURING PRELIMINARY QUALITY BEFORE BREAKING GROUND
One of the cornerstones of Harbour’s success is our pre-construction services. Throughout any of the services we provide our goal remains simple; look out for our client’s best interest and maximize the client’s return on investment.
Harbour’s pre-construction services were originally developed to ensure projects meet time and budget requirements while maintaining the highest level of quality construction. Our 60+ years of industry expertise, utilization of the latest available technologies, and comprehensive project management systems all work together to allow our team to accurately estimate the schedule and conduct constructibility and value engineering reviews.
Harbour will provide pre-construction services for your project either as a distinct task or as part of a greater construction management contract. With either scenario, thorough pre-construction planning with the early input of Harbour’s team is critically important in order to achieve significant savings in both cost and time for the project.
At the beginning of your project, every decision made has a significant impact on the structure’s final result. Since 1959, Harbour has believed in completing quality projects by utilizing time-tested methods and complex problem-solving skills to identify potential construction risks and eliminate costly impacts.
Harbour’s pre-construction team works side-by-side with the team of designers, owners, developers, and contractors in the conceptual design phase. This collaborative effort allows for various building system evaluations. Subsequently, this process also minimizes risks and allows Harbour to consistently achieve the highest level of quality assurance in every project we touch.
