PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

"The Sealaska project was a unique opportunity to design with artistry and cultural heritage in mind. Incorporating actual artists' work into functional design adds distinct Native Southeast Alaska Indian Culture, as well as a contemporary vibe. The use of traditional native colors, carvings and homage to mother earth is thematic throughout Sealaska's space. The level of professionalism and coordination by Foushée with vendors and subcontractors was exemplary in accomplishing a very short construction schedule with a tight budget. Foushée stepped up many times with its subs to mitigate construction delays, thus ensuring the project's on time completion. Thank you to the Foushée team for a job well done on the Sealaska project."

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.
