Constructability review services
The most important decisions affecting the cost and schedule of a remedial action project are made during the preliminary phases
Drawing on decades of project experience and expertise, Sevenson provides clients with reliable constructability review services. Simply put, the most important decisions affecting the cost and schedule of remedial construction and environmental dredging projects are made during the preliminary phases. These decisions, however, are typically made without the perspective of individuals experienced in the practical aspects of performing the work. This can result in uneconomical use of time and resources during design and implementation phases, and lead to costly change orders and schedule delays.
Incorporating the constructability review into the project planning process reduces the potential of these issues. Proactive companies consult with Sevenson during project engineering and design phases to draw on Sevenson’s experience and expertise.
Sevenson launched its project planning services in response to requests from customers. Every customer posed the same question: Is it possible with earlier contractor input to reduce cost and accelerate project completion? Sevenson responds to this question by offering the constructability review, a process that opens communication channels early in a project among the owner, contractor, and engineer. Early communication produces better results.
