Pre and Post Construction Consulting

Pre - Construction Planning

 

The first step of any successful construction project is meticulous project planning and management. Effective pre-construction project planning and scheduling are the cornerstones of any and all projects.

 

With that being said, we assist our clients in mitigating major construction risks by using innovative platforms of collaboration with all design parties during pre-construction stages to optimize the efficiency and execution of a project. 

 

Our pre-construction services are tailored to our clients’ needs and goals depending on considerations, project specifics, construction delivery method, and design phase. The Pre-Construction Team of Ashgroup offers core consulting services, including:

 

- Value Engineering

- Budget Management

- Constructability analysis

- Life Cycle Cost analysis

- Project Scheduling

Tendering and Procurement Management 

Typically, the primary tender and procurement management process is for selecting the construction management contractor to do the work. However, as procurement routes have become more complex, so have tenders been sought after for a wide range of goods and services (for example, on a construction management contract, the works are constructed by a number of different trade contractors, each contracted to the client). Contractors may take on additional functions such as construction design and construction management.

Risk Management 

By definition, a new construction project involves the introduction of some form of change; a new building, a production system, or a way of working. Change involves uncertainty, which means that projects are more likely to be blown off course by a potential future event. In other words, projects are inherently risky undertakings.

 

The main aims of risk management are to:

  • Identify potential risks.

  • Assess the probability and impact of each risk.

  • Identify alternative construction management actions that may prevent the risk from happening, or if it does happen, ameliorate the effect, or provide a strategy for dealing with the accepted consequences.

  • Implement and monitor those actions that are cost-effective and necessary to the successful delivery of the project objectives.

  • Provide feedback from experiential learning to improve future projects' risk and informed project managers' training and development.
