Preconstruction

At GBA our construction team redefines the industry standard of preconstruction services. Beyond traditional estimating, our comprehensive approach encompasses the entire preconstruction phase, elevating your project from inception to implementation. Unlike most firms, we’re not just a construction company — we’re strategic partners offering a holistic perspective through the seamless integration of in-house architects, engineers and management teams. This synergy ensures that from identifying opportunities and conducting feasibility studies to maximizing ROI, every step is meticulously planned and executed for your project.


Optimizing Project Success

Our unique process begins with understanding your goals. Our dedicated preconstruction team collaborates early on, leveraging extensive market experience and innovative engineering insights to optimize your budget and project scope. By seamlessly integrating constructability reviews and cutting-edge technology assessments, we focus on helping owners make educated decisions before shovels hit the ground.

Seamless Collaboration at Every Step Along the Way

Collaboration is the cornerstone of our approach. From the outset, we engage with owners, architects and facility managers, working hand-in-hand to translate your vision into reality. This collaborative spirit extends through construction, where our in-house experts work closely to ensure timely, accurate and consistent feedback on pricing, scheduling, safety and quality. Our partnership transcends mere project updates; it’s an open exchange of ideas, precise information processing and timely decision-making, all aimed at delivering an impeccable plan before breaking ground.

Elevating Precision through Building Information Modeling

At the heart of our process is Building Information Modeling (BIM), an indispensable tool driving effective problem-solving and coordination from project inception through construction. With BIM, our team ensures unparalleled precision and efficiency, setting the stage for a seamless transition from planning to execution.
