As an Owner Representative, Development Logistics Group offers the following services:

Pre-Construction Services

Decisions made during pre-construction have a tremendous impact on a project's final cost and schedule. Development Logistics Group has assembled a Pre-Construction Services Team that excels not only at estimating, but analyzes projects from fresh perspectives to focus early decision-making, budget development and feasibility studies.

Detailed input regarding price, value, constructability, building systems and materials enables the team to develop a contract price and schedule that conforms to an Owner's goals.

Development Logistics Group’s participation during pre-construction often results in cost savings exceeding our fees. Not only does the Pre-Construction Team’s participation save hard costs, an organized preconstruction effort minimizes architectural costs by eliminating redesigns and excessive documentation.

DLG’s seasoned construction professionals control costs, schedules, quality and execution of the work throughout a project. Their knowledge of local building codes, life/safety requirements, permitting and other local conditions deliver the expertise needed to direct a project to a successful conclusion.

Leveraging experience and a statewide presence, DLG can represent an owner's interest to minimize claims, ensure schedule compliance, coordinate proper document control and optimize the owner's investment in the project.

Clients using Development Logistics Group pre-construction services:

  • Obtain early feasibility budgets without the expense of detailed design and bidding

  • Compare alternative building and siting scenarios

  • Can ask what-if questions with speedy and well-grounded answers based on experience and the latest in analytical tools

The Pre-Construction activities performed:

  • Feasibility analysis

  • Conceptual and detailed estimating

  • CPM Scheduling

  • Budget development and project proposals for works in planning

  • Value engineering alternatives to meet budget and schedule goals

In the rush to develop project funding and preliminary design, these valuable tools often are overlooked. While Development Logistics Group offers these services independently at fee, we routinely incorporate them into Construction Management services, making for greater value and a higher level of planning which serves our clients well.

Our pre-construction team will work with the entire project management team to ensure success. We will develop and review all our decisions relating to project design, costs, and constructability. Software tools that allow us to quickly update, compare, and revise all levels of estimates are key to our quick turnaround time and sharing of estimate information.

Our team members’ experience, their dedicated functions and their use of the latest analytical tools have proven to be invaluable in value engineering, scheduling, logistics, constructability or a variety of other services.
