Pre-Construction Services


Prepare a complete detailed estimate of the Design Documents through the various phases (Schematic, DD, and CD). During this process we anticipate for what is not shown on the drawings which would be required for a complete job.


Understand the Project and create the sequence of work and duration of time required to perform.

Buildability Analysis

Review of design and planning to offer potential alternatives and be as efficient as possible.

Value Engineering

Analyze the design to ensure that it meets the client’s cost and schedule requirements for the project. Suggest alternative design, materials, systems to reduce cost and time.

Design Management

Work with the Design team to prioritize and establish bid packages for long lead trades. LBG can coordinate, administer and monitor the design phase; assess proposed design solutions; advise on construction feasibility, material/labor availability, construction scheduling and sequencing; as well as cost implication.
