Conceptual Budgeting
and Planning

By partnering early with our clients, we’re able to help determine the feasibility of each project. We can offer advice on the design, scope and size of the project, then turn customer ideals into a conceptual budget that allows our clients to ensure the numbers work.

Northcentral Construction has a long history of accurately matching preliminary budgets to final construction costs. We look forward to bringing our 256 years of construction experience to your team.

Pre Construction

Northcentral Construction uses pre-construction planning to benefit the construction process:

  • Cost Estimating: Budgets and schedules are continually updated to reflect changes.
  • Value Engineering: Value of construction is maximized by improving function and reducing costs where possible.
  • Bid Solicitation: Bid packages are cleared to ensure subcontractors are well-prepared for the work.
  • Constructability Reviews: Performed to prevent cost overruns and delays.
  • Long-Lead Time Procurement: Obtaining materials as early as possible prevents last-minute material searches and work stoppage.
  • Project Scheduling/Phasing: Carefully considered site logistics are combined with means and methods planning to minimize disruptions while maximizing productivity.

During Construction

Northcentral Construction provides a smooth, safe construction experience with multiple review points:

  • Experienced Site Managers: We provide full-time experienced Site Managers who interact daily with onsite tradespeople to resolve issues and monitor job flow.
  • Safety First: We require all trades to comply with all safety regulations and place the highest value on a clean and safe worksite.
  • Review and Approval: Our management team reviews progress weekly to ensure your project reaches successful completion. We also meet with architects and designers to make certain all finishes meet owner developer requirements and complete a sample unit so the architect and owner/developer can verify that the unites meet their approval.

Post Construction

Northcentral Construction ensures your project is ready for use and every system is fully explained and documented:

  • Punches Completed: We complete pre-punch before architect or owner/developers set foot in the project and all punch items are 100% complete before we leave a job.
  • Manuals Provided: We provide an O&M manual with all pertinent data, trades that worked on site and warranty information to the operations personnel, and electronic manual, blueprints and as-built drawings to the operations personnel and the owner/developer.
  • Orientation Presented: We hold an orientation for management and maintenance where all trades are represented and all systems are located and covered.
  • Challenges Resolved: We are available during the warranty period to offer quick resolutions to any challenges.
