Preconstruction

Laying the groundwork for success

Right from the start, Robert A. Bothman Construction maps out the phases of your project to ensure a successful outcome. We provide detailed site analysis, analyze constructability, and explore alternative scenarios for cost and schedule. To achieve full project integration, we complete the following tasks in the early stages of preconstruction:

  • Site Assessment
  • Planning and Permitting
  • Design Coordination
  • Budgeting/Cost Estimating
  • Master Scheduling
  • Constructability Review
  • Value Engineering
  • Bidding and Procurement
  • Construction Pre-planning and Site Logistics Assessment
  • Staffing and Equipment Analysis and Assignment

Design-Build Analysis
Our team is ready to coordinate the entire design phase of your project to mitigate scheduling issues, refine preconstruction, and confirm plausible engineering. When executing a true design-build project, we are more than just visionaries; we act as architect, engineer, and builder. Returning to the time-honored approach of the Master Builder, Robert A. Bothman Construction serves as a single source provider, fully accountable for integrating aesthetics with functional performance. Our longstanding relationships with select design professionals facilitate seamless communication between architect and construction site to ensure a successful transition from concept to reality.

"I had the privilege of working closely with Bothman on several successful construction projects including Rocky Graham Park in Marin City and Hilltop Park and the Civic Center Playgrounds in San Francisco. Bothman’s experience and expertise has been a tremendous asset to our projects.

The projects we worked on together ranged between 5 million and 10 million dollars and each has been complex for different reasons. One example is the Helen Diller Civic Center Playgrounds project, a 10 million dollar renovation in front of San Francisco City Hall over an existing parking structure from 1960. In addition to its high visibility and constant pedestrian traffic, the area is regularly booked for events. To add to the challenges of this project, the design included fully custom play structures that were manufactured and shipped from Germany. I strongly believe that Bothman is the only contractor we know with the skills to deliver this project successfully."
