Zwick Construction is known for their award-winning preconstruction planning program.

RESOURCEFUL & COLLABORATIVE 

PRECONSTRUCTION SUCCESS FORMULA

Zwick Construction is known for its award-winning preconstruction planning program. Our resourceful and collaborative approach to preconstruction results in fewer surprises and lower construction cost for clients later during the construction phase.

The best time to maximize value while minimizing the impact to the project occurs in the preconstruction stage. Through a process called Value Engineering (VE), Zwick reviews the drawings early-on, and identifies areas ripe with potential savings. Each option is evaluated from several advantages including from the perspective of Cost and Schedule. Ideal options and areas of cost savings are then presented to the owner and design team for evaluation and possible selection.

PROJECT

VISION

Having an early and thorough understanding of the project vision is a key element to the ultimate success of the project. Through open communication and collaboration with the owner and design team, Zwick’s preconstruction services create an environment where project innovation, teamwork, and efficiency is maximized.

VALUE

Value Engineering is a continual mindset, not just a one-time event. It begins as soon as we become involved in a project. But early involvement is key.

Establishing an early project baseline in terms of both cost and schedule is essential to capitalizing on the value engineering process. Through “real-time estimating,” design progress and decisions are constantly evaluated. This process provides the necessary and timely information required to make educated and insightful decisions regarding what will bring the best value to the project. Preconstruction estimates are continuously updated to reflect the current design status.

CONSTRUCTABILITY

REVIEWS

We get involved as early as possible in the design process, working with you and your design team to evaluate the drawings and provide critical feedback on the constructability of your building. We evaluate it from several perspectives that only an experienced contractor can provide. Involving Zwick from early on in the design phase will allow us to provide accurate and creative solutions, in a highly-collaborative process which will provide you with information to make the best decisions.

Zwick Construction has an award-winning preconstruction department that has completed hundreds of projects, including the BYU Laundry, Maintenance, and Emergency facility.

PRECONSTRUCTION:

BYU LAUNDRY FACILITY

During the preconstruction process, Zwick worked with the design team and BYU to achieve the project budget and compress the scheduling by 15%, delivering the facility in 11 months. This award-winning, fast-track project consisted of the construction of two new buildings and the installation of more than 2,000 feet of utility tunnels within high-traffic areas of this busy university campus.
