Pre Construction Services & Advice

At John F Hunt we understand that a key element to the success of your development, is early engagement. It is also where the majority of all cost savings will occur, ensuring your project remains financially solvent.

The Project Game Changer

We help you to improve value and reduce risk, by providing early joined up advice on all pre-construction activities, from commercial management, methodology and programming to design and stakeholder management. 

A full understanding of the project, its practicalities, safe solutions and shared information, lead to a fully collaborative approach, innovative ideas and a successful outcome. Use of virtual reality, BIM and 3D visualisation promotes this, allowing us to demonstrate our proposed designs and programming clearly to you and your stakeholders.

It is also essential at this stage that actions are taken for addressing overall carbon reduction measures, as this is when the influence on any project is at its greatest.

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. Our pre-construction services, give clarity to our commitments and really is the project game changer for you.

The Pre- Demolition Audit

Pre-demolition and pre-refurbishment audits provide you with independent advice about the products and materials that can be reused or recycled prior to demolition or major refurbishment. You can then use this report to set targets and objectives within the demolition or refurbishment tender documents to ensure best practice in resource efficiency is adopted by the appointed contractor. Pre-demolition audits are recommended by The Institute of Civil Engineers (The ICE Demolition Protocol) and can be requested for planning requirements. They are designed to highlight the potential for maximum material recovery through demolition and provide a bill of quantities of tonnages that will arise. A report will be produced detailing materials arisings as well as a list of suggested actions to be undertaken so that maximum material recovery is achieved on your site. The report includes information on the following:
  • The potential for maximum material recovery through demolition
  • A Demolition bill of quantities, which identifies tonnages and potential applications of materials arising from demolition.
  • A set of recommendations for material segregation, considering the potential impact of contamination and the cost benefits for recovery and reclamation.
