Preconstruction Services

L&N provides a full spectrum of preconstruction services—as you would expect from one of Colorado’s leading top woman owned construction companies. The L&N difference lies in our passion for the industry, the ability to confidently and consistently interpret and deliver results as only a true builder can do.

Our passion for continuous improvement has inspired us to continue to develop some of the most progressive and accurate preconstruction processes and tools in the industry. From the use of VDC technology and sustainable construction practices to budget estimating, design reviews and more, our services vary based on project delivery method, market requirements and our unique client needs. What doesn’t vary are the results—detailed, accurate and complete data up front, allowing for informed decision-making, and close cost control and schedule adherence from end-to-end.

The following are preconstruction services L&N provides for the wide range of Delivery Methods and Markets:

Budget Development and Estimating

L&N’s pre-construction teams understand how critical our early estimates are to your project’s success. We practice a continuous process of cost control beginning on the day we are selected as part of the project team. From that day forward, we focus on realistic budgeting, accurate documentation and ongoing review of costs to help your maximize your budget dollars.

Using our proprietary estimating tools and databases, as well as timely information from the marketplace, our experienced in-house team of estimators collaborates with the project team in the development of an early, accurate budget. As the design develops, we maintain a watchful eye toward the budget, providing advice as to cost, schedule and constructability, as only a true builder can do.

Value Analysis

L&N’s systematic and proactive approach to value analysis maximizes the effect of every project dollar spent and is a critical component of our process. This includes cost analysis, identification of alternatives, construction feasibility, considerations relative to labor and material availability, and effect on the project schedule. Our role is to investigate and suggest viable design alternatives that will avoid unnecessary expenditures and provide improved value and economy, while maintaining the design intent and owner goals. During the value analysis review, all expenditures relating to construction, maintenance, operation, and replacement are considered.
