Shaw-Lundquist understands that the goal of any construction project is to deliver a facility that meets or exceeds owner expectations while maximizing the value of the construction investment. Understanding and meeting the project goals identified is the foundation of our preconstruction approach.

Preconstruction Services

We are accustomed to joining the design team during the design process to bring alignment between what the project does and what the project costs. Our clients depend on our cost analysis, innovations and solutions to add value through proven experience.

Vital preconstruction tasks include:

  • Constructability reviews
  • Disruption avoidance planning
  • Environmental and life safety planning
  • Long-lead time procurement

"Shaw-Lundquist is a valuable partner to ensure projects are completed as scheduled and within budget. They will bring success to your projects."

A Construction Firm With a Commitment to Sustainability

Building Sustainably

At Shaw-Lundquist, sustainability is much more than a buzzword. It’s an integral part of our construction philosophy and shapes our company’s operations. We know that sustainable buildings are designed holistically, taking into account all aspects of the building’s performance. It begins with the preconstruction process and carries through the entire life cycle of each and every building.
