Understanding Design and Preconstruction

At The Neenan Company, we are always striving to provide you with extra effort so that we can accommodate your values for your building project. Many construction and architecture companies will dive right into designing and construction, but our team will work closely with you to determine what you value the most in your project. 

Read on in today’s post to learn more about our unique preconstruction process, and how Neenan can implement Archistruction™ into your new building to make it look, feel, and function just like you dreamed it! When you’re ready to get started with a new design process, contact us to learn more.

Target Costing

The preconstruction phase of our Archistruction™ process is based on the concept that we call “target costing.” This is an approach to design that uses cost as a factor with the intention of minimizing waste and creating value. Thanks to our collaboration and feedback directly received from you, we create a high-quality project without the added cost inflation associated with many traditional design companies. Thanks to target costing, we are always keeping your best interests in our focus. The three results that come from target costing include:

Accurate Cost Information

When building decisions are made, costs can be added or subtracted to determine an accurate target cost. Doing this on a daily basis will give you more cost information about your project, which will help it to become much easier to determine the scope and scale of your new building project. The more accurate your early cost estimates are, the better it will be for everyone further down the process. 

Ability To Make Value Based Decisions

At Neenan, we refer to this as “choosing by advantage.” When we work together, we will be making multiple decisions based on the importance of initial costs, schedules, flexibility, production improvements, lifecycle costs of product, and more. Thanks to target costing, you can make more sound decisions and consider a wider variety of options.

Provide Transparent and Competitive Costs

With the Archistruction™ process from The Neenan Company, you will always see accurate and up-to-date costs and work bids. We don’t self-perform labor, but we instead give you the market rate construction and options based on conditions that have been defined throughout the preconstruction process.

Concurrent Constructability

Constructability is a term that is used in project development to review the processes that are involved in construction during the preconstruction phase. Constructability helps to determine any potential problems before they become impassable obstacles. In the long run, this helps to prevent:

  • Building errors
  • Unnecessary delays
  • Unforeseen costs

During the preconstruction process, constructability is contributed to each and every day. This will help to deliver effective scheduling for your needs and an excellent completed building project.
