What Are Preconstruction Services?
It’s important that there’s a lot of planning that has to happen before any actual construction takes place. At DESCCO, we offer pre-construction services as an initial step in planning a project for greater insight on everything from cost estimates, design specifics, scalability – and everything in between. With our expert preconstruction experience, we’ll help you stay aware of what to expect and provide detailed project roadmaps for every stage of the process.
Why do I Need Preconstruction Services?
Preconstruction planning is a great way to stay organized, on budget, and on time with every stage of the future construction process. If a business outgrows its current building and needs to renovate or expand on its location, figuring out exactly what you need before construction starts can feel intimidating. Especially for a large construction project, going it alone isn’t usually a good choice and can cost you more in the long run. That’s why choosing DESCCO Design & Construction ensures you get our excellent pre-construction services for whatever your project and industry needs.
Isn't Preconstruction About Determining the Price of the Project?
Preconstruction services are much more than just determining the price of a project while getting a few technical drawings. At DESCCO, we take pride in creating an environment that fosters collaboration and encourages the engagement of each and every project team member. Our streamlined planning process focuses on getting a project on an efficient development path prior to starting any work. Such planning helps us address a wide range of possibilities and concerns, including:
- Obtaining permits, governmental engagement before starting
- Value-enhancement resources
- Material selection
- Schedule conflicts
- Site evaluation
- Site requirements
What Does the Preconstruction Process Entail?
We start our preconstruction work by listening to what matters to you about the project. Equipped with this knowledge, we organize a team of experts uniquely chosen for your specific project needs. We also use our decades of industry experience toward planning preconstruction-based outcomes, as well as the industry-leading technology that helps us consider every aspect of your project.

Can My Contractor Help with The Site Selection Process?
At DESCCO, project managers will visit the construction location and evaluate the area’s feasibility for your project. They’re there to look out for and provide professional opinions about any future challenges and additional costs that may come up.
How Do You Ensure the Most Qualified & Reliable Subcontractors are Selected?
