Preconstruction/MEP

In-house preconstruction services set projects on the path to success.

Blach believes that a thorough and intensive preconstruction process is a key success factor of any project. More than just cost estimators, the Blach preconstruction team is composed of mechanical and electrical engineers, constructability experts, and modeling engineers who work in concert with cost estimators to provide a complete menu of services to customers.

The substantial amount of time we spend working on projects before they break ground helps us more effectively plan projects to ensure that our customers’ visions are brought to life in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Blach has earned a reputation for producing accurate estimates that historically have resulted in near-zero change orders during construction.

Beyond constructability reviews, our project managers and superintendents create detailed and realistic construction schedules and comprehensive bid packages and contracts. Our estimating team works directly with the project manager and architect to provide realistic, reliable estimates throughout the design process to keep the project scope and budget in check.

In addition, the coordination and management of the many other consultants involved in a project (such as environmental and geotechnical engineers, movers and permit officials) is overseen by the Blach team during the preconstruction phase, to make the construction process a hassle-free experience for you.
