Author: Adam Kucharski, PE
Preconstruction is when you get all your ducks in a row.
The sooner the better.
The Preconstruction phase (Precon) is a collaborative and comprehensive process that allows an owner to make informed decisions to maximize the value of a project and manage cost and risk. Precon involves all the advance planning to identify constructability concerns, analyze cost impacts, and make the most efficient use of resources and funds.
