A Unique Approach ...
Childers’ pre-construction services and expertise is anything but common. Over the years, we’ve learned valuable lessons and identified successful practices along the way. We draw on this experience and continue to enhance our technologies and techniques, so that we can deliver the best in the industry from project conception to completion.
The difference between a superior and an average pre-construction provider is how proactive they are in the overall process. We know that what happens in preconstruction doesn’t stay in preconstruction; it actually affects the entire project and is critical to the project’s overall success. Any contractor can react to a design once it’s drawn. But to respond during the design process, to productively comment at the meeting table during the process and to propose alternate concepts that will achieve project goals within budget and schedule is exactly the collaboration Childers pre-construction delivers.
The goal of pre-construction is to deliver the building our clients desire – or better – with early cost certainty. Precise pricing that has been defined and confirmed to eliminate surprises, even unexpected savings, is the focus. We combine our construction skills and experience with true innovation to bring the highest levels of efficiency and quality to each and every project.
Our pricing is among the most competitive and accurate in the industry. Our preconstruction experts dig into the project details, addressing everything from budget and scheduling issues and phasing requirements to quality expectations. With this level of attention, we can avoid surprises later in the building process and ensure maximum value in the finished product.
