Our pre-construction team is typically involved in the very early stages of a project and is accustomed to working with the Owners’ interests in mind. Our staff is highly qualified and detail-oriented. We attend design meetings on a regular basis with our clients on all project types and are pro-active in suggesting early solutions to mitigate risk, delay and cost overruns. Our experience working on projects from inception to final completion gives us the skills necessary to see and accurately budget the project while details are still being worked out.
Our expertise in conceptual estimating will help to avoid false starts, costly modifications and lost opportunities. Cranshaw Construction’s 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. Cranshaw Construction also has the necessary market presence in eastern Massachusetts to obtain the amount of subcontractor coverage and bid participation necessary to deliver the most competitive pricing. We utilize Sage Timberline Estimating with a custom-built database that includes over 20 years of cost history for projects in the Boston area.
