When it comes to new home constructions and additions, many people assume that the process begins when work boots step foot on the job site. It actually begins long before — at the preconstruction stage.
Without proper planning, a project can quickly become disorganized due to miscommunication and unexpected delays. That is what makes the preconstruction process so critical to the success of any construction project. It can save you headaches, time, and even money. Here’s what you need to know.
What is preconstruction?
As the name implies, it’s the stage preceding the actual construction process. Here, the client, contractor(s), and any other necessary stakeholders come together to plan out the project. They cover everything from scope to timeline and even costs.
At J. Schwartz, LLC Remodeling & Fine Home Building, we offer comprehensive preconstruction services that include all the important considerations, such as value engineering, scheduling, budgeting, permit acquisitions, and subcontractor selection, among others. As the leading general contractor in Montgomery County, PA, we go the extra mile to ensure that your construction project is hassle-free from start to finish.
What are the major benefits of preconstruction services?
1. Shared project vision
Every successful construction project starts with a shared vision among all the stakeholders. When everyone involved in the process is on the same page, it becomes easier to define goals and achieve them.
2. Less chance of going above budget
Estimating the total cost requirements is one of the most important aspects of preconstruction. Without it, you won’t have any clear idea of what to plan for and how much funds you need to secure for the project. If this occurs, you could end up spending way more than you should.
3. Improved communication between teams
Effective communication is integral to the success of any project, and the preconstruction phase is the ideal starting point. Our team can set up the framework to support quick, open communication, which in turn, helps improve decision-making and moves the project along faster.
4. Early assessment of feasibility
An idea may sound good, exciting even. But that doesn't necessarily mean it is feasible. It’s important to understand early on what can be achieved based on your budget and expected timeline. Feasibility assessments also help you identify potential problems and plan for them. This saves everyone involved a ton of time and money.

Getting our expert team involved early on in the process will help us determine project viability, as well as identify systems and structural details that may require special attention. We then offer tangible solutions aimed at saving time and money later in the construction phase.

We offer a personalized approach wherein our team takes the time to listen attentively and speak candidly about the details of the project.
