Pre Construction Services

Candor Construction takes pride in our experience and the successes of our pre-construction services. With nearly 200 design/build projects throughout the East Coast, our team efficiently provides essential information during this vital phase of any successful development.

For instance, many projects need special attention in the early stages of development. Candor Construction, Inc. can help owners with:

  • Various feasibility studies— these are preliminary studies undertaken in the very early stage of a project. They tend to be carried out when a project is large or complex, or where there is some doubt or controversy regarding the proposed development. The purpose of a feasibility study is to establish whether the project is viable, help identify feasible options, and to assist in the development (if required) of the business case, project execution plan, and strategic brief
  • Design development —During the design development phase, the project design is further refined. Plan arrangements, specific space accommodations, equipment and furnishings, building design, materials and colors, and complete definitions of all systems serving the project are developed. All design decisions are completed during this phase in order to prepare the subsequent construction documents.
  • Preliminary cost estimates — this is a preliminary estimate of construction cost. It details the unit price for each line item needed for a specific project.


In addition, our pre-construction services often include helping the owner obtain project goals through: Design decisions, value analysis, timeline and schedule preparation, and constructability concerns.

Finally, at Candor Construction, our design/build experience provides special insight into the needs of owners and developers. Our team understands the owner’s financial and logistical issues that dictate a successful project. We work diligently to develop budgets that will include complete project costs without excessive change orders and an efficient design that will meet the owner’s needs.
