Preconstruction

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

In the initial phase of design and construction of your project, RCS will complete a thorough site analysis and will provide early pricing models to ensure the feasibility of achieving your budget and proforma expectations. Project Managers will provide customers with a Budget Opinion during this phase of the process. This serves as a rough order of magnitude projection for project cost.

SCHEMATIC DESIGN

With an understanding of the overall project objectives, we will start to build a detailed estimate, introduce innovative elements, and help the team develop a sequencing plan for design, procurement, and construction.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION

Finalizing the estimate, confirming quantities, securing approvals, code compliance and ensuring the design and budget expectations are aligned. At this point in the process an official quote will be issued to the client that outlines official cost of project with complete construction drawings.

TRANSITION

The team will be fully integrated and engaged as we move into the construction phase of your project. Our construction services team, project managers, and design staff collaboratively transition into the construction phase to schedule, procure and complete your project on time and within budget.
