Pre-Construction Services

Engage McGee at the early stages of a project for an assured outcome.  We offer a complete range of pre-project and construction services to customers and their professional advisers.

McGee’s advice and assistance in planning submissions, listed building or heritage applications and party wall agreements, brings greater certainty to the technical and financial feasibility of prospective projects. We also offer a full cost advisory service, from initial pre-feasibility to detailed budgets and value engineering exercises.

Customers profit from our advice and assistance on initial pricing and value engineering possibilities, cost planning and forecasting, expert knowledge on methodology and logistical constraints.

Our specialist knowledge is extensive, for example all residential developments are required to meet the code for sustainable homes – guidance that provides an environmental assessment method to rate and certify the performance on new residential developments. It is intended to encourage continual improvement in sustainable home building through management and implementation.

McGee strives to meet and surpass the minimum requirements of code level 3 and will make a code level 4 a benchmark for future developments at no cost or impact to the customer.

We also provide detailed sequencing and programme advice, temporary works alternatives, including façade and earth retention schemes, party wall shoring, deep basement propping solutions and various ground engineering techniques.

Furthermore, we can help with planning submissions, party wall agreements, listed/heritage building applications, responsibilities under the new CDM Regulations and compliance with relevant standards and detailed tender submission and presentations.

Our services are provided by a dedicated Planning and Estimating team so that customers receive commercial and technical advice at the project conception stage.

Estimating services include budgetary advice and options, market trends and costing, all aspects of project programming and logistics, supported by our advanced engineering, programming and planning expertise.
