Specialized Services

Pre-Construction Services

Simmons Construction is a full-service general contractor who prides itself on the success of your project. Like most things, supplementary planning and preparation that goes into a construction project will result in a smoother execution and completion of your project. This is why Simmons is very pleased to offer Pre-Construction Services. Simmons Construction can help manage to ensure cost control and schedule adherence from the inception of your project. Often times we are able to help Owners and Architects understand and design more cost-effective and time-saving construction methods, meanwhile saving Owners’ time any money by avoiding costly redesign time and permitting delays due to additional revisions. Pre-Construction Services also allow us to begin scheduling and sequencing earlier in the project to ensure the project commences as early as possible and adheres to the project timeline.   


Depending on your project and your project’s needs, below is a list of the activities that are typically engaged in with our Pre-Construction Services:

  • Visit the site and review preliminary design drawings with Owner, Architect and Structural Engineer

  • Participate in regularly scheduled design progress meetings with the project team. Through this, we will be able to provide valuable input in regards to constructability, construction cost, schedule, sequencing as well as means and methods

  • Provide Value Engineering reviews to offer alternates and cost savings suggestions during the design process

  • Assist in material specification selection

  • Provide Rough Order of Magnitude {ROM} cost estimates during the design process.

  • Review and issue comments and suggestions throughout the design process

  • Prepare proposal based on 100% complete construction documents

  • Help drive design and pre-construction stages of a project in conjunction with project team

  • Help maintain accountability of design team deliverables

We are more than happy to tailor our Pre-Construction Services to your project’s needs no matter what the size or requirements may be.

Another service that Joseph S. Simmons Construction offers is Owner’s Representation for your project. Often times an Owner’s Representative can help to serve as an extension of your project staff. This type of representation can be extremely valuable if you are not located near the project, if you are not extremely familiar with the construction processes as well if your project is on a tight timeline and you need to manage accountability of the project team or you just simply do not have the time to manage the project yourself. In any case, we are here to help. Each project has its own specific requirements and goals which are very important to you as the Owner as well as any other investors or stakeholders. With our highly experienced hands-on staff, we can ensure that the Owner meets their project goals from inception to completion.


Some of the basic representation services include:

  • Helping to establish a budget and timeline
