Working with Cliff and Evans during the pre-construction phase ensures that our team is able to offer valuable insight and support during the critical planning stage, when decisions are being made that will shape the trajectory of your project. Engaging our team from the outset of the build helps to mitigate your exposure to risk and manages the scheduling and project costs while optimizing your design preferences.
From an efficiency standpoint, it is always beneficial to incorporate as many details as possible into the construction documentation before beginning to build. This will ensure that your project is executed efficiently without having to compromise on the design, function, quality, or aesthetic of the project.
When we are involved from the outset, the Cliff and Evans team will employ our extensive experience and knowledge of current best practices and market trends to make suggestions for your project. This can include helping you to evaluate various alternatives based on real-world conditions and constructability, as well as providing preliminary high-level costing estimates to keep you on-budget.

Project Team Assembly
Building the strongest team for your project is critical in bringing your vision to life. With a clear understanding of your aesthetic, functional needs and budget from the beginning of the project, we can work with you to ensure that the best partners are available well in advance of the targeted construction start date.
Value engineering means that together we can explore the right features that make sense for your project so that your design and financial goals are in sync with each other. Keeping your budget top of mind from the earliest stages means that we can help you determine where your dollars will have the biggest impact. For example, we can help guide you on how to best incorporate unique or stand-out components into your project as well as instances where it may make sense to conserve your resources.
We develop detailed and realistic schedules that include various permits, approvals and construction activities, with a focus on ensuring sufficient time to deliver the high-quality work product that we have become known for.
Securing partnerships with the most talented trade contractors and manufacturers early on is crucial so that we can properly accommodate and plan for the construction of any complex elements of your project.
