Pre-Construction 

Overview

At Colt Builders, we believe the success of the job starts with proper planning and review of all scope of work aspects. Planning and Review that begins well before the first load of lumber is ordered. We PLAN for each phase of the project and look for anything that may cause a delay or further expense so those can be avoided. We REVIEW plans and scope of work to make sure everything is accounted for and there are no surprises.

Unforeseen obstacles occur on every jobsite, but we believe with a little extra up-front effort during our preconstruction phase, these can be greatly reduced.

Preconstruction Phase: Time invested = Time gained

After Colt Builders is awarded a project, our Preconstruction team begins the preparation for the job start. This includes:

  • In-depth review of the plans to see if there are any missing details or information that needs further clarification.
  • Begin RFI submittals with anticipation that all questions get answered and information provided before the first nail is driven.
  • Review of initial material and labor estimates to make sure current construction drawing set details are covered in takeoff.
  • Creation of job site layouts to show building sections / phases for scheduling, deliveries and work flow.
  • Creation of CAD drawings if needed, to assist on-site personnel with layout of hold down embeds, etc.
  • Review materials specified in plans and create material submittal package.
  • Scope review to make sure all field personnel are aware of responsibilities and job specific requirements.

 

Colt Builders has learned that time invested by a Preconstruction team prior to the job start helps save significant time and money in obstacles that typically arise from poor planning and poor preparation. At Colt Builders we believe we are leaders in the framing industry by providing this level of service to our customers.
