During pre-construction planning, the building owner, architect and Renier collaborate to synchorize the goals, budget and timeline of the project.

Pre-Construction Planning

Pre-construction planning is the crux of the design-build process. Before any plans are drawn or pricing calculated, the owner, architect, and Renier collaborate and synchronize goals, budget, and timeline. Having a precise plan and process in place is the foundation for every step that follows.

Addressing critical details during the pre-construction planning phase results in fewer construction changes, a reduced construction timeline, and cost savings for the customer. Renier's pre-construction program is closely managed with weekly design meetings, milestones, and critical path elements that ensure a project stays on schedule and on budget.

Case Study: Dayton Freight Springfield/Strafford MO

Pre-construction during a project for Dayton Freight revealed a number of issues, allowing Renier to proactively avoid potentially devastating outcomes.

When Dayton Freight outgrew its leased facility in Springfield, they considered purchasing it and expanding it, or building a new facility. They called on Renier Construction to investigate their options in order to make an informed decision.

Renier studied the feasibility of adding onto the existing facility, including bringing it up to current codes and regulations. The scenario proved cost and time prohibitive. Renier next turned its attention to a new site Dayton Freight found. Due diligence identified a number of issues with storm drainage that could cause legal ramifications from offsite drainage both to and from the site. Dayton Freight identified a second site that passed Renier's review.

"We have a long standing relationship with Renier, so they know our needs and requirements," said Tom Cronin, President, Dayton Freight. By involving Renier in the preconstruction process, including site selection, Dayton Freight prevented potentially devastating outcomes.
