Pre-Construction Services

Pre-Construction Phase

Pre-construction is critical for a successful project outcome. Our team works closely with the owner and the architect to ensure that all understand the entire scope of the project and define project success. We provide accurate budgets and project schedules early on so our clients can make well-informed decisions. Greystone’s goal is to provide clients with the highest possible value within their budget while maintaining the scope and schedule.
