Precision Planning for Project Success

Overall project success relies heavily upon the decisions made at the initial stages of the job. Combining skilled professionals with an open and collaborative approach, DPR’s comprehensive preconstruction services offer advantages on projects of various sizes and complexities, including:

  • Providing the assessments and recommendations necessary to make timely, informed and data-driven business decisions.
  • Better serving the interests of the project through relevant suggestions and hands-on partnership with owners, designers and construction teams.
  • Helping to manage the overall process by tracking details and holding team members accountable.

Our preconstruction services go well beyond traditional open-book cost estimating and value engineering to create more reliable schedules and estimates. We use the most relevant tools, technologies and processes, and get the right people involved at the appropriate time, to drive down project costs while maintaining design intent and the customer’s overall goals and objectives.

Tracking Performance

Preconstruction is one of six Critical Success Factors DPR tracks on every project to ensure that our cost estimates are accurate and reliable. We also collaborate with the team to identify key performance metrics that are reported on regularly, helping to create greater alignment around project goals, which ultimately leads to a much smoother, more successful project.
