OUR BUILDING PROCESS
HONESTY & INTEGRITY AT EVERY STEP
Preconstruction & Design Phase
How does Scott keep every construction project on time and in budget? We have a very thorough preconstruction and design process. Before breaking ground on any project, we evaluate all available designs, methods, and possible alternatives to make sure our estimate and schedule are accurate.
Define Project Team Requirements
Who’s on the team and what are their responsibilities?
Prepare Schematic & Design Development Estimates
Scott reviews your architect’s designs and provides you an initial cost estimate.
Work with the City
We attend planning commission meetings to get approval on your preliminary concept and site plan and city council meetings for final approval of your design. We also handle all necessary approvals and inspections.
Value Engineering and Lifecycle Cost Analyses
We evaluate methods and alternatives to arrive at optimal performance and quality.
Prepare Project Milestone Schedule
Our rigorous planning process produces a schedule that sets the pace for up-front planning and value engineering.
Long Lead-Time Materials Deliveries
We identify materials that require long lead-time deliveries.
We select subcontractors who can commit to our pricing and schedule, awarding contracts based on value, resources, and quality.
We meet with all subcontractors and major suppliers to share the schedule and guidelines for your project.
Guaranteed Maximum Price Meeting
If you've committed to working with Scott Build, we'll present you with our guaranteed maximum price for your project.
Once you’ve reviewed and approved our bid and schedule and we’ve held our preconstruction conference, your project moves into the construction phase. Scott keeps you informed and involved throughout the construction process. Here’s how we keep your project on schedule and within budget.
We monitor materials availability and all contractor personnel and equipment to keep your project on or ahead of schedule.
Safety is always a top priority and continuously monitored.

Shop Drawing Control
We expedite the processing and approval of shop drawings and samples.
Quality Assurance and Project Testing
We perform several quality checks throughout the course of your project. Our minimum standards often exceed industry standards.
Progress Meetings and Requests
We’ll meet weekly with you, the architect, and subcontractors to discuss procedures, progress, problems, and scheduling.
Certificate of Occupancy
We facilitate state and local inspections for their final approvals.
The post-construction phase is short but rewarding! It’s when you take ownership of your new space.
Congratulations! We hand off instructions and complete operation and maintenance manuals on your utilities, operating systems, and equipment.
Call us if any problem arises. In our experience, you’ll identify any potential defective materials or systems within the first year.
