Pre-construction services are used in planning a construction project before the actual construction begins. These services are often referred to as preconstruction or precon.

Pre-Construction is a modern practice, considered to be part of construction project management, which is the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from inception to completion aimed at meeting a client’s requirements in order to produce a functionally and financially viable project

Our construction management success is largely a result of what we contribute and accomplish during preconstruction. The ECRB Preconstruction model is a comprehensive and collaborative “building-team” process, initiated at project conception, and executed throughout the design phase.

The program enables our team to provide cost and schedule certainty, value driven building solutions, a high level of facility/ building performance, and ultimately, enhanced customer satisfaction.

Why Choose Us


Throughout the preconstruction process, we always take into account constructability of all the building elements, and we work directly with the design team to perform constructability reviews.Our staff has unique knowledge of building that only comes from hands-on experience.Because ECRB is a builder as well as a manager.


ECRB understands that delivering a project within budget is one of the keys to its success. ECRB’ seasoned estimating and project management staff will ensure that you have the project-specific cost information, reviews and recommendations needed to thoughtfully evaluate design options while maximizing your budget.


The Design Assist approach produces a “best value designed” building with lower life-cycle costs and a sensible payback period. Collaboration with design team members (Architect) begins during the conceptuals phase and continues throughout design, construction and commissioning. (When design is in our scope)


We are constantly striving to provide our clients with the most comprehensive information available to make informed decisions about their investments. In the evaluation of systems and strategies, energy modeling allows us to take our standard value analysis a step further by incorporating information on energy savings over time.


Our in-house estimating staff brings years of hands-on building experience and includes mechanical and electrical professionals ensuring knowledgeable, reliable estimates which can base critical planning and decision making. Integrated into our estimating procedures will be all value engineering and constructability.


Lean techniques streamline the construction process to eliminate waste and deliver efficiency. Often, the schedule can be accelerated through minimizing inefficient breaks and downtime, and costs can be lowered by minimizing subcontractors’ time and maximizing their productivity.


ECR can assist you in producing an environmentally responsible building with optimal energy efficiency and lower life cycle costs. By establishing high-performance and environmental goals, as well as baseline measurements, and identifying applicable practices and strategies, we can document progress levels and, if LEED Certification is desired, determine the required documentation to achieve project goals.


We focus on developing a comprehensive and achievable schedule which can be used as an accurate planning tool for the life of project. Our on-site project team goes to great lengths to ensure schedules are met and coordinated with business operations.


Our Value Analysis process has one primary objective – maximizing the value of every dollar spend. This strategic analysis takes into account a plethora of factors for each proposed item to create a complete picture of the savings and costs associated with each. This is all presented in a clear, categorized matrix to give the information you need to make critical decisions about project.
