Preconstruction services can be provided through a variety of arrangements including: Design Assist, Design-Build, and Construction Management at Risk (CMAR).
Each method provides the owner with the benefit of having Gerald Martin's expert input throughout the design process. More than seventy percent of Gerald Martin's work falls into these categories. Under the Design Assist construction methodology, the owner can contract separately with GM to work with the architect and provide ongoing analyses of the design. These analyses typically include: cost estimates, budget reviews, scheduling, constructability analyses, value engineering, phasing, and early purchasing of long lead items during the preconstruction phase of the project. Our preconstruction services ensure the owner of a smooth, efficient and cost effective construction process that delivers on-time and within budget.
