One of the most valuable services we provide is a Plan Check - a sheet-by-sheet review of the construction documents and specifications prior to the project bidding. We thoroughly search for potential coordination issues and design inconsistencies, in order for the design team to make corrections prior to releasing the bid documents. We review every drawing, index, note, dimension and detail.
“Our approach is that the cleaner and easier a set of drawings is to understand, the easier the project will be for the subcontractors to take-off, which should result in more aggressive pricing. A project that is difficult to take-off creates doubt in the estimator’s mind and causes heavier pricing to cover errors or misinterpretations.”
