"Dickinson Cameron are true craftsmen. They approach every project with a collaborative spirit that leads to open dialogue with the client, the design team, and the site which leads to a smooth process and a great finished product. DCC’s approach helps to identify issues early, and streamlines construction when questions do arise to protect the schedule. They work as true partners for the entire project team while maintaining a rigorous attention to detail. I have enjoyed working with DCC, respect their abilities, and value our relationship."
- Ryan McNulty, Project Manager and Senior Associate at MBH Architects
Dickinson Cameron’s preconstruction services take a proactive approach to maximizing value for our clients. We assemble a team of project managers and estimators to work closely with clients, architects and designers to identify and resolve potential issues and coordinate pre-construction procedures, including:
Initial concept plan and architectural design review
Site survey and evaluation
Interpretation and distribution of documents
Detailed scope qualification
Preliminary estimating / budget analysis
Labor and contract review
Preliminary construction scheduling
Electronic transfer of project documents
Coordination of permitting and approvals
The pre-construction scheduling process allows us to maximize efficiencies, minimize project durations, and increase value to the client. Our preliminary construction schedule provides an important, early stage visual forecast of the project timeline.
DCC’s experienced staff can provide proposals based on partial conceptual designs or fully specified documents. Value engineering and alternate recommendations resulting from our pre-construction guidance often provide our clients with significant savings.
