Pre-Construction Services

The most successful projects begin with strong relationships. Our approach to providing pre-construction services to our clients in the Bay Area and beyond is to create a contractor-customer relationship characterized by cooperation and collaborative design.

During pre-construction, Thompson Builders' seasoned team will provide assistance from the early stages of the project concept to plan development to assembling bid packages to issuing contracts.

Thompson Builders will work with your project team to perform the following services:

  • Estimating: Thompson Builders can furnish cost estimates based on project documents or conceptual designs to outline the values of all major components of the project and confirm/provide owner budgets.
  • Value Engineering: Once we have an estimate, Thompson Builders can offer value engineering alternatives to reduce cost and schedule without compromising quality. We draw from our extensive relationships with subcontractors as well as our own work forces to make recommendations based on experience.
  • Constructability Reviews: Early review of drawings helps to identify potential conflicts, which reduces construction duration and ensures projects run smoothly.
  • Site Logistics Planning: Our Team has experience working in many settings, including occupied buildings, downtown urban settings, limited access environments, and staging areas. Taking the needs of our client into account, we perform a site evaluation to plan the phases of construction and staging areas effectively. This helps us ensure construction is completed safely, efficiently, and with minimal inconvenience to our client.
  • Design/Build: During the design/build process, we maximize the benefits of our pre-construction services by collaborating with subcontractors to draw experience from all disciplines. The design/build method shortens the overall project duration by identifying and resolving problems during design and enabling a smooth transition into construction.
