Projects Rarely Go as Planned

Many issues can be recognized early and avoided altogether by including the major subs in pre-construction planning.

On your typical project, designers and engineers create a plan and it falls on the construction team to put the plan into action. In the ideal situation, everything should go as planned. But experience has shown us that plans are never perfect and the team has to improvise on the fly. These feedback cycles and plan changes cause delays that end up costing time and money.

D&S Electrical Contractors, Inc. has proven repeatedly that our assessments increase value, provide efficiency and help to create a stronger team effort.

We Identify Budget and Constructability Issues Up-Front

D&S Electrical Contractors, Inc. look for budget and constructability issues first. We practice this model each day and promote a collaborative process among the general contractor, owner, design team and other subcontractors. D&S Electrical personnel assist before and during the design development phase, with project budgeting in the conceptual stage.

Using our extensive historical cost database and our skilled personnel, we produce extremely accurate conceptual cost estimates early in the process. Our team reviews plans and specifications in search of excessive costs and opportunities for design improvements. While performing value engineering, we identify any design and/or construction methods that improve the economics of the project and make appropriate recommendations to the project team.
