Preconstruction Services

RIVETT CONSTRUCTION can provide Preconstruction consultancy to our clients assisting them to optimise their business outcomes and minimise their risks.

We work with the owner and the design team in the early phase of drawings, to provide value engineering and suggestions for siting, constructability, budget and scheduling. Within our Preconstruction services, we act as a value-added member of the design team, enhancing the design segment of the job by providing accurate pricing information and marrying the budget to the actual design.

By incorporating items such as sustainability and maintenance costs into our design review, our suggestions can often save the owner money well into the future. Our pre-construction team works to reduce the overall project cost by saving time, labour and expenses. The result is a building designed to the owner’s specifications, within budget and with no surprises.

We understand the vital importance of maintaining proper records and monitoring and managing contract compliance. We also recognise that sound commercial and contract management practices significantly reduce the risk of formal disputes arising.

We will ensure that proper consideration is given to the procurement options, and have extensive experience in the preparation of contracts whether they are standard forms or bespoke, as well as the arrangements associated with varying delivery strategies.
