PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

"You promised me the best and you delivered! Without exception, Foushée far exceeded our loftiest expectations. When American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. both agreed to allow Miller-Nicholson to build dealership facilities for each respective manufacturer on the same property, we knew the project would be special. We just had no idea how special, or how complicated. As the only one of its kind in the United States, our facility has drawn accolades from across the car industry. While the facility is indeed remarkable, the real story may be the design and construction timeline that allowed just 18 months of construction due to expiring leases. The Foushée team members pulled off a minor miracle, pouring 500 cubic yards (50 truckloads) of concrete every Thursday for 30 weeks. The organization required was nothing short of monumental. One missed week could have jeopardized our entire schedule. The team didn't miss a week. Unforeseen issues further complicated an already impossible situation. Your team never once gave in and never once said it couldn't be done. On behalf of myself and co-workers, thank you. The facility is an unbelievable accomplishment. I couldn't be more proud of our building and of my relationship with Foushée. Let's start the next one soon!"
- Brad M. Miller, President, Miller-Nicholson

Conceptual Estimating
As an integral part of your team, we provide information and recommendations to enhance decision making during the design phase. Our accurate conceptual estimating and the foundation of our pre-construction process helps you make informed business decisions. Once we produce the first budget estimate, we stick to it.

Open Book
We operate with “open-book” budgeting, so each team member participates with bottom-line awareness. You will always know where you stand on budget.

Value Added Strategies
We recommend means and methods, balanced with budget sensitivity to resolve conflicts and to maximize the design.

Scheduling
We develop and implement a phasing plan based upon your project requirements to expedite the construction process. We verify scheduling on cost-critical items and systems availability. When necessary, we suggest workable alternatives.

Team Dynamics
Our project team will be in place with you from beginning of pre-construction through completion of the project. A company principal-in-charge is always in attendance as team leader, providing continuity, stability and expertise.

Relationships
We work with many architectural and engineering firms, which has allowed us to develop effective relationships with them on a wide variety of project types.

Subcontractors
Our well coordinated work schedules and prompt payment cycle result in very competitive pricing for our projects.
