Pre Construction Services

A key element to the success of a development is early engagement, therefore by utilising our in-depth knowledge and construction expertise we help our clients plan for success on a broad spectrum of demolition, civils and frame projects.

Our teams are available to provide early advice on all pre-construction activities from commercial management, methodology and programming to design management and stakeholder management.

A full understanding of the project, its practicalities, safe solutions and shared information, lead to a fully collaborative approach and a successful outcome.

With such extensive specialist businesses within the John F Hunt Group, we facilitate a universal approach to early planning, by calling upon their expertise to dovetail programming therefore maximising efficiency.
