Construction: Pre-Construction


WE GET IT. We’re contractors — we like to build things. But before we can put a stick of pipe in the ground or celebrate at a jobsite safety lunch, there’s some business that has to be done: Pre-Construction.

Design and Cost Analysis

Providing design analysis and cost options through a Value Analysis or Value Engineering approach is an important service of pre-construction groups. If brought in at the early stages of design, Ivey Mechanical can recommend and price design alternatives that can offer maximum savings to the project. If involved later, when the design is more established, we are still able to identify opportunities and recommend generous cost savings.
