Pre-Construction

The Pre-construction department works closely with owners and design teams to provide accurate, competitive and timely proposals. Our estimating services range from providing conceptual design budgets to final construction document proposals. Frequent communication among the project team allows us to provide the client with accurate information regarding decisions. In addition, our Pre-construction department solicits and evaluates proposals from qualified subcontractors and vendors to insure the best qualified and most competitive (schedule and cost) companies are utilized.

We also regularly perform site assessments of existing conditions and evaluate schematic/design development drawings.

Building Information Modeling

M. J. Harris knows that Building Information Modeling (BIM) improves overall project results. Through the life of the design process, constructability details and space restraints can cost the project time, money and quality if not foreseen and resolved. M. J. Harris uses our internal Virtual Construction department to implement BIM technology, and issues that would become critical during the construction process are predetermined and resolved with no project impact. We implement BIM into our project delivery, adapting the technology to best fit your specific project goals. M. J. Harris provides a wide range of BIM services including: 3D visualization and mockups, constructability analysis, conflict coordination, as-built creation, quantity extraction, site logistics, project phasing and facilitates management.
  • 3D Visualization and Mockups - which allow review of the completed project before construction begins, which affords the team the ability to make educated design and value analysis decisions.
  • 3D As‐Builts - provided by M. J. Harris at the conclusion of the project to assist you and your maintenance staff in managing the facility through its lifecycle.
  • BIM Constructability Analysis (clash detection) - which in the preconstruction and construction process detects potential construction and design conflicts earlier, reducing and/or eliminating your exposure to change orders.
  • 3D Coordination - which enhances installation quality, shortens installation duration, reduces waste and rework, and all but eliminates coordination‐related change orders.

Operations

No matter what form of project delivery you choose, our goal is centered on 100% owner satisfaction. We feel that this is accomplished by cultivating a collaborative team approach involving owners, design teams, subcontractors and M. J. Harris. This approach develops a strong bridge, ensuring that each project is a success and all expectations are completely fulfilled.

There are numerous components to completing a successful project. Our focus will be centered on open communication, safety, scheduling, budget, material management, and quality control. The team will have these items at the center of their daily operations.

We feel each and every job requires the same level of dedication; from the smallest to the largest projects, we do not deviate from these objectives.
