BMC Pre-Construction Services

The value of preparing a well-executed pre-construction project phase for your luxury residence is paramount in ensuring an enjoyable construction process and a phenomenal finished product.

A key factor that sets Black Mountain Construction apart from other general contractors is our pre-construction services and team trade partner approach.  The pre-construction phase is the most critical stage of a project.  Actions taken and decisions made during this period can significantly affect the budget and the schedule.  Our quality can never be compromised therefore we strive for the utmost planning and service throughout the project process.  The depth of our pre-construction services capability is unparalleled and uniquely positions our organization as a true partner with our clients.  Our team trade partner members are assembled based upon the specific needs of the project.

During pre-construction:

Initial Bid Drawings Phase
In the initial bid drawings phase, BMC creates the first budget as presented with this package. This budget is based on the bid drawings and is preliminary in nature, utilizing basic quantity surveying or material “take offs”, historical data and approximate pricing that reasonably anticipates the final project. This budget has been broken down by structure and overall ground area for all exterior improvements.

Design Development
After receiving feedback from the project owner and design team upon review of the first estimate, the design development phase budget is created and synchronized with the potentially revised scope.  At this stage, some specific details emerge, and broad decisions are made which allow the building team to begin talking more specifically with subcontractors and suppliers.  The result of these conversations is an increase in the accuracy of the pricing and the introduction of another technical perspective to the project.

Construction Document Phase
At this stage, the budget document goes through a final revision as task specific man-hour, material, and equipment pricing along with – subcontractor and/or supplier bids for all applicable areas of work are incorporated.

Permit Issuance Phase
The permit issuance phase is when the construction drawing gets submitted for permit.
