• FUN Facts! - PRE-CONSTRUCTION PLANNING errors can lead to costly construction mistakes… People don’t plan to fail; they simply fail to plan!
FUN Facts; As the old adage goes... “People don’t Plan to Fail; they simply Fail to Plan!” For any successful construction project, the first, and most critical step is Pre-Construction Planning, which must be completed prior to any physical on-site construction activities.
Pre-Construction Planning is a very important preliminary process that’s performed long before any work boots actually step foot on the job site.
The goal is to understand the full scope of a project and its requirements, long before the actual construction begins. Without proper planning, a build can quickly fall into disarray as a result of miscommunication, delays, or unforeseen problems.
A construction project consists of a series of events or tasks that must be completed over time.
• Pre-Construction Phase
The pre-construction phase includes creating a strategic plan, finalizing the design, providing the labor and resources required.
• Construction Phase
The construction project lasts from the moment physical construction begins on-site until the completion of the on-site build.
• Post-Construction Phase
After construction, systems documentation and training are provided, with continuing support services and ongoing maintenance.
Master Video’s Pre-Construction Planning process is vital to the success of the entire project. Pre-Construction Planning checklists include every possible scenario and contingency that the team may encounter during a project, resulting in higher-quality work that meets the requirements of a project, including budget, time, and resources.
In our preliminary engineering and planning stage, we define the scope of the project, conduct needs analysis, identify any potential issues, provide cost estimates, schedule and plan related construction, and provide Project Management for each job.
The old adage, ‘Measure Twice and Cut Once,’ has never been so true with Pre-Construction Planning. We double-check our measurements and specs for accuracy long before the construction, installation, and implementation process begins.
• Shared Vision; everyone involved is on the same page.
• Feasibility Assessment; ensures it gets done within scope.
• Budgetary Boundaries; cost estimating avoids unforeseen costs.
• Team Communication; sets groundwork for a successful project.
• Efficiency Increases; anticipates and avoids potential delays.
• Problem Prevention; drastically limits missteps and overruns.
• Improved Satisfaction; planning correlates to higher satisfaction.
