Pre-Construction Services

ENGworks believes in a custom approach to preconstruction services. At ENGworks, we understand that the ultimate goal of any project is to deliver a facility that meets the needs of its owners as well as its end users. Successful preconstruction planning leads to successful project completion.

We approach projects with a toolkit that is full of proven technologies and processes. When planning a projects’ preconstruction, we utilize a bespoke sprint methodology to capture the necessary requirements, track tasks, and achieve the goals of the project.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers significant visualization and communication insights in the Preconstruction phase of your project. BIM also helps manage risk for each stakeholder by collaboratively defining each of the project specific risks, developing strategies to manage them, and communicating these strategies with each stakeholder in a clear and concise manner. Manage changes with minimal impact.

“Curated technology applications are essential to accurate and efficient project delivery.”

 

Christopher DiIorio, CEO ENGworks

The sequential exchange of paper-based documents and 2D and 3D CAD data was the primary information sharing method between project teams for all design and construction projects. These processes generated abundant construction-related waste. Both Building Information Modeling, and subsequently Virtual Design and Construction, promise to eliminate this waste.

Our comprehensive array of preconstruction expertise allows us to meet a wide range of criteria, from budget and schedule considerations to functional requirements. By using BIM during the preconstruction phase, in conjunction with our quantity takeoff, scheduling & planning capabilities, we can optimize the project’s construction and operation and save you time and money, adding value at every step of a project’s lifecycle.

We utilize BIM and VDC during every aspect of your project’s life cycle. During design, our preconstruction teams utilize BIM/VDC to perform constructability reviews, run clash detection and perform quantity take-offs. We develop phasing plans, 4D schedules and we manage the overall coordination of the modeling environment. By implementing BIM/VDC during the preconstruction phase, we improve communication between all project team members, enhance efficiencies and reduce risk.
