Several Kraemer employees gather around a table to look at plans for a construction project

Pre Construction Services

The Earlier, The Better

Our goals during this phase are to eliminate surprises during construction and to build the project as cost effectively as possible. This is a collaborative effort between all parties; including the owner, architect, design-build consultants, structural and mechanical engineers, and local municipalities. Kraemer Brothers knows that early involvement is key.

When we are invited into a project early we are better able to understand and anticipate an owner's needs and expectations. Kraemer Brothers is preselected on more than 75 percent of the jobs we build. The pre-construction phase includes delivery methods, accurate conceptual and detailed cost estimating, site evaluation, logistics planning, scheduling and selection of the best building systems for a particular project.

Our extensive database of completed projects provides historical analysis that leads to accuracy in estimating and cost-saving methodology. The master schedule we develop identifies long lead times, design milestones, permits and approvals, early bid package and phasing.
