Pre-Bid & Value Engineering

GZA offers complete pre-bid estimating, design assistance, and value engineering to assist contractors with creative approaches to construction, maximizing your chances of winning the bid by providing economical solutions.

Our engineers work closely with contractors to help:

  • Evaluate the project, including subsurface conditions and design requirements,
  • Provide suggestions and evaluate alternative methods
  • Prepare conceptual design sketches
  • Optimize use of the contractor's existing equipment and materials 

When the project is successfully won GZA will prepare a stamped design package and will work with the contractor to get the design package accepted by the owner and owner's engineer.

We understand the client's budget and time constraints and we proactively work within those parameters to achieve compliance with the design basis criteria. Our team of engineers has the experience to envision alternative concepts resulting in schedule and cost-savings for a project without comprising safety or quality.
