Incorporating value engineering and construction management expertise at an early stage of a project is a paramount factor to the success, significantly reducing costs and risks, and leading to a successful delivery within time and budget. ICS offers robust techniques that ensure the successful delivery of an upcoming project through systematic preconstruction process.
With a solid background in both design and construction management, ICS provides deliberate, exhaustive and vigilant preconstruction services during a project’s planning and design phases. At our core is an innovative and integrated approach to developing the construction strategy. Our teams of architects, engineers, project managers and financial experts gather a comprehensive range of data, analyze it and provide full visibility into all aspects of the project.
ICS defines the scope of the project, objectives and the best course of work and scheduling to meet the customers’ targets within the budget. With a clear work scope and requirements, our specialists proceed with construction approaches, design plans, layouts, functional planning and building materials, alongside a firm master schedule and milestones for each phase and the overall project. If needed, ICS prepares bid packages for the multiple work divisions, and identifies potential subcontractors with the requisite capabilities to complete the work successfully.
Thorough preconstruction planning and constructability reviews improves cost performance by 6.1% and schedule performance by 7.1% according to the Construction Industry Institute (CII).
