The RWC Pre-Construction process enables clients to achieve best solutions from the outset. By reviewing all aspects of the project, we can foresee and resolve issues before they arise. As part of the pre-construction process we not only consider for our scope of work, but engage with our clients to determine the best sequence for building; reviewing site logistics, client objectives, and other unique challenges.
Our expertise and experience, industry knowledge and modern technology bring significant value to the project ensuring alternatives are considered and beneficial solutions implemented.
Our elite pre-construction services include:
- Detailed estimates and budgets, based on our knowledge and experience of most project types
- Collaboration with the GC and design team to review construct-ability and value-engineering; phasing and scheduling logistics
- Implement alternate innovative construction means, methods, materials, and technologies
Providing this service supports our value to be the most distinctive commercial wall and ceiling company in Metro Vancouver.

Through the RWC Design Assist Program, this project delivery method ensures our construction team is engaged early on in the process to collaborate with the architect or engineer. The advantages we offer through our design assist program is reduced time and cost for construction, improved constructibility and added value for the client. Design assist is part of the recent trend in delivery methods toward teamwork approaches to design and construction. To gain the full benefit(s) of our design input the time for RWC to be involved is during the schematic design phase or the design development phase. This does not diminish the role of the architect or engineer or their ultimate responsibility for the design. We work cooperatively with the design team with respect to any or all of the following items
- Design assistance
- Value engineering
- Cost estimating and final price determination
- Building Information Modelling (BIM)
