PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

"Children's Institute for Learning Differences (CHILD) is both an accredited day school for children ages 5-17 and a developmental therapy clinic for children 3-18 with special needs. Since 1977, CHILD has been serving children placed by parents or in partnership with over 20 school districts. After 21 years of renting space on Mercer Island, CHILD was faced with an almost impossible task - 180 days notice to vacate and a complete renovation of the property we recently purchased. With this challenge, we needed a team we could count on and Foushée delivered. Not only was our construction project completed in record time, the entire team at Foushée was "all in" for a successful completion from the get-go. The staff, students and families at CHILD will never be able to thank them all enough. Angels among us. Every one of them. As you can imagine, CHILD enthusiastically recommends Foushée to anyone looking for a professional, reliable general contractor with a proven track record - and a heart."

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.
