Front-end planning for construction projects typically involves the following processes:

front-end planning process

  1. Organization: Team selection and preparing a pre-project plan
  2. Data Generation: Review and analyze technology, project sites and preparation of scope and conceptual estimates and schedules
  3. Alternative Project Selection: Evaluation and analysis of project alternatives

Strategic Asset Management

How much? It is the first and most important question to ask before investing the time and money required to develop a concept into a realized project, and answering it incorrectly at the concept phase will assuredly lead to cost overruns and time delays later down the road. BPA’s experience, which ranges from proactive project due diligence in pre-construction planning to forensic construction claims analysis and litigation support, positions us to provide you with conceptual project budgets that address the economic feasibility of your project from the outset.

Even if your construction or engineering project idea is still just that, an idea without drawings or plans, BPA’s professionals have the estimating experience to provide you with the necessary conceptual project budgets to help get your project off the ground. Our Rough Order of Magnitude budgets are polished enough to set accurate cost expectations from the beginning of the project, which will help avoid cost disputes in the end.
