Every good project starts with a great plan. At Vidaris, our service and technical teams know the importance of planning, and with the integration of our Construction Advisory division, Vidaris can work with your team to develop that great plan that you can depend on. From concept to closeout, we tailor the plan to your specific project needs, giving you the peace of mind to move forward knowing you are prepared.
Our Construction Advisory team can:
• Provide project plan development
• Estimate preliminary budgets and costs
• Determine project schedules
• Perform value engineering
• Coordinate logistics and phasing
The planning process begins by working with your team to establish project goals and objectives, followed closely by developing the processes to make it happen.
Vidaris’ team can review constructability, logistics, phasing, sequencing, staging, design documents and scope developments. Additionally, we can assist with the development and/or evaluation of the project budget and schedule to help your team better evaluate the project scope and costs. Our proactive process provides you with budgets that establish cost expectations at the beginning of the project, while minimizing cost creep through the evolution of project, which yields accurate estimates for our clients.
Document development, integrated project milestones, budgets and scope identification are key to moving projects forward. Suggestions for practical implementation, constructability and solutions during this process can mitigate potential budget and schedule creep.
We engage in early procurement planning for long lead, critical path components, and specialty items of the project – which can include closely-manufactured materials or equipment, i.e. curtainwalls, windows or specialty exterior elements. With our experienced exterior wall and roofing/waterproofing teams, we are able to provide a holistic approach to choosing materials and systems that are best suited for your project, and assist you and your team with procuring and negotiating subcontracts.
