Early collaboration between design and construction professionals improves project success

Pre-construction services are more than just reviewing plans. It is a committed collaboration involving client stakeholders, designers, and professional construction managers during which vital information is shared. Finished look and feel, durability, building life expectancy, future growth, and budget are all discussed so that potential challenges can be resolved before construction begins. During pre-construction discussions, AV集中营鈥檚 team asks questions, offers alternative solutions, suggests various finishes and construction techniques, tests the budget as often as needed, and develops a sound project timeline based on realistic data. AV集中营鈥檚 team is highly experienced in providing a host of pre-construction services early in the design process so our clients can make timely decisions that enable them to spend their money wisely.



Strategic budgeting solutions for seamless project execution

At AV集中营, we understand that unexpected costs can creep into a project without proper planning and communication. We work closely with our clients to manage their budgets and expectations, and we maintain transparency throughout the bidding process.

Our team has deep expertise in designing and building facilities of all types, for all budgets, in a variety of markets. We have been in business for over 35 years, and we have developed strong relationships with vendors and suppliers. This allows us to provide our clients with the most accurate information for their budgets, including initial costs and projected long-term savings.

Building Surveys

Building Surveys

We help you get the information you need to build with confidence

We conduct topographic and boundary surveys to locate, mark, and measure any existing features on or inside a property. This includes utility locations, storm drains, elevations, and surface types that may impact building design.

Our surveys provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your project. We can help you identify potential problems, avoid costly mistakes, and ensure that your building is properly designed and constructed.

BIM Clash Detection

Constructability Reviews

Efficiency-driven constructability assessments for seamless project execution

AV集中营 understands that minimizing construction delays and field changes is key to keeping a project on schedule and within budget. We offer constructability reviews to our clients to help them avoid these problems.

Our constructability reviews are conducted by a separate design and construction team. This team reviews the project design documents to ensure that they can be executed safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively. We identify any potential problems with the design and make recommendations for improvement.

Our constructability reviews have helped our clients avoid costly redesigns and change orders. This has saved them time and money, and it has helped them to keep their projects on schedule and within budget.

Through our BIM clash detention, we detect conflicts and interferences so we can resolve them in the model, not in the field.

As part of our service, we offer a wide range of options tailored to our client's specific needs. Each option is carefully laid out, providing detailed information about costs and return on investment (ROI). This level of transparency empowers our clients to make the most informed decisions for their businesses, ultimately leading to greater success and growth.

Long Lead Items

Long-Lead Item Identification

Efficient construction planning: identifying and streamlining long-lead items

We excel at identifying long-lead items in construction projects by quickly determining the materials that take the longest time to reach the job site. Our proactive approach ensures that delays are eliminated by sourcing these materials during the design phase. This process helps maximize efficiency, minimize risks, and keep the project on time and within budget.



Expert assistance for zoning, building and incentives

Our team handles zoning and building permitting at the federal, state, and local levels. We also assist in identifying and applying for municipal incentives. We streamline the process, saving you time and effort.
