Southland Construction

Preconstruction

Renowned throughout the industry as a strategic advantage for the pursuit of any project, Southland offers preconstruction services regardless of project size, type, or location.  Keeping us at the leading edge of the market, the secret to our success is that we compete day-in and day-out as an engineer, an installation contractor, and a facility service provider.  Our distinct advantage is our ability to share and combine knowledge of each phase of the building lifecycle across all disciplines. Resulting in spectacular innovations that are cost responsible, maintainable, and perform exceptionally well as proven by our history of successful projects, we invite you to utilize our capabilities to maximize project value and performance:

Project Requirements Review including the development or review of building and systems performance criteria that will achieve the often-competing objectives of performance, quality, cost and schedule.

Project Site Review including the investigation and evaluation of existing conditions to improve the definition of scope, identify infrastructure limitations, and highlight construction and maintenance concerns.

Cost Estimating to establish labor, equipment, material, subcontracting and general conditions budgets, scope metrics for benchmarking, and detailed estimates based on current market conditions for mechanical, plumbing, and fire protection (MEP/FP)systems.  This cost feedback is available throughout the conceptual, schematic, design development ,and construction documentation phases of the project.

Value Engineering including real-time cost evaluations and recommendations that guide design decisions to manage costs while maintaining or improving system performance.

Constructability Review including the review of engineering solutions for practical application, installation, and maintenance concerns.

Schedule Development including analysis of optimum trade sequencing, as well as integration and scheduling of the MEP/FP trades to save both time and cost.

Building Information Modeling expertise including the means and methods of harnessing the people, process, and technology to improve collaboration, minimize waste, and create true value for the all members of the design, construction, and operations team.

Bid Evaluation including assisting the owner or project team with evaluating MEP/FP bids to ensure the technical, scope, and cost components are recognized and evaluated to mitigate risks.

Modular Construction expertise, which identifies and integrates multi-trade modular construction as a design feature of the facility to improve quality and performance, while minimizing costs.

Procurement Services including enlisting Southland’s expertise in equipment, material, and subcontractor procurement to improve quality and system interoperability, maximize constructability, avoid scope gaps, leverage Southland’s national purchasing power and minimize project risks.
