Pre-Construction Services

Henry Carlson Company Construction Services - Pre-Construction Services

The right start. The right team.

Developing a close working relationship between you, the design team and HCC construction managers as the beginning step of your project is vital to clearly establish expectations and goals. Our process will evaluate the aesthetic and functional as well as the cost and schedule implications of all design options being considered. Early in the design process, we work to help establish the cost of design options, identify important project components and collectively see their integration into the completed project. Our focus becomes one of systematic value analysis during design instead of after the project bids.

"Madison Central School District recently completed renovation and additions to the high school building. Henry Carlson Company served as the construction manager and did an exemplary job throughout the planning/construction cycle. Through their expertise the project was divided into phases allowing for school to be held while finishing the entire project several months ahead of the original plan."
