bigstock-rolls-of-architecture-blueprin-31998608SCW, Inc. is a full service General Contractor that has extensive experience in the design and pre-construction process that sets us apart from the competition.  Many GC’s claim to perform pre-construction services but simply provide an estimate once the Architect produces a set of plans.  Unfortunately this leads to getting the design done only to find out that the project is over budget and must be re-designed or have scope cut.

At SCW, Inc. we help guide the design process with accurate conceptual estimates based on our in-depth project experience, value engineering, and constructability enhancements to help guide the final design to the budget.  This avoids costly re-designs and delays to the project schedule.  SCW, Inc. understands that Pre-construction services extend far past estimating and we are an active team member through the entire process to help ensure project success.

SCW, Inc. also performs in-depth reviews of the plans and specifications using our detailed Drawing Review Template that captures drawing issues experienced over 15 years of plan reviews.  We also perform coordination reviews between the design disciplines to minimize issues that can lead to construction change orders and delays.

SCW, Inc. also has extensive experience in the due diligence and entitlements process.  We can assist you from an early stage with all aspects of the land acquisition process including feasibility studies, geotechnical investigation, utility availability, surveys and much more.
