Cranshaw Construction’s pre-construction team is typically involved in the very early stages of a project and our detail-oriented staff work with the Owners’ interests in mind. Attending design meetings, we pro-actively suggesting early solutions to mitigate risk, delay and cost overruns for our clients on a variety of project types. While precise project details are still being worked out, we draw upon our experience to accurately foresee and budget the project.
Our expertise in conceptual estimating helps avoid false starts, costly modifications and lost opportunities. Our cost control system relies heavily on its extensive database using the most technologically advanced software available in today’s marketplace. This ensures that the latest cost and purchasing information is readily available to make timely and accurate cost projections. This cost analysis system becomes an essential tool that can be utilized by the owner and the contractor in making informed decisions during the design phase in order to ensure the project is brought in within budget. Our market presence in eastern Massachusetts allows us to obtain the subcontractor coverage and bid participation necessary to deliver the most competitive pricing. We use Sage Timberline Estimating with a custom-built database that includes over 30+ years of cost history for projects in the Boston area.
