pre-construction services picAlterman's design-assist and cost / value assessment services distinguish us from our competitors. Early participation facilitates a fast-track schedule and allows construction to get underway before completion of design documents. By evaluating the Owner's unique requirements, Alterman can recommend cost-effective, quality-enhancing solutions and alternatives that will extend life-cycle usage and lower operating costs. Our experience, historical data, and accurate, up-to-date pricing result in the development of prompt and realistic budgets from conceptual design. Our approach to estimating becomes more thorough and detailed as the design process moves forward. When preparing a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) estimate, Alterman establishes a complete and comprehensive estimate based on partial construction documents and our list of design assumptions and qualifications. As the work progresses, we implement meticulous cost controls to complete the project on time and in budget.


Involving Alterman in the pre-construction stage of your project, assures you of obtaining a superior electrical system that exceeds quality expectations while remaining in budget.
