Choosing the Best Construction Management Software for Preconstruction

Which software is right for you? Let us help you figure that out.

Given its important role in the project delivery lifecycle, the preconstruction phase demands software that meets its unique requirements. Recognizing that the preconstruction process is not linear, it’s important to have software that optimizes your project to its full potential and addresses the 40+ unique workflows that are involved in the preconstruction phase. 

The purpose of preconstruction is to develop the plan for how the construction project comes together. It involves critical efforts such as cost estimation, design coordination, value management and procurement as well as a myriad of other factors.

A high degree of collaboration and information sharing is fundamental to a successful project. You need a platform or software that makes planning simple and allows for all stakeholders to be involved from one step to the next.

When looking for software that suits your needs, you should ask yourself the following questions:

 

How can this software contribute to better coordination in a construction project?

Our platform is the perfect complement to the design and BIM process. The visualization and coordination of the design in 3D coupled with ConCntric’s management of the cost, ideation process, risk and schedule provide for a much more complete and unified planning process in preconstruction.

 

Can it assist in providing precise cost estimation for construction projects?

Can it assist in providing precise cost estimation for construction projects?

Using ConCntric, you can provide precise cost estimation for construction projects in a way that does not require any change in estimating software or standards. ConCntric integrates with our customers’ existing estimating solutions to provide enhanced analytics and visualization of the project’s cost trajectory and objectives. The cost data combined with ConCntric’s classification, project criteria, risk factors and schedule input for the project provide a comprehensive view of the project over the entire preconstruction lifecycle.

You want software that improves project management in construction by setting the table for success. With ConCntric’s platform, all of the preconstruction planning efforts are unified around smart data, digitized workflows and seamless collaboration. By a more comprehensive and data-driven approach to how the planning stage is managed through ConCntric, the outcomes in the construction phase are inevitably more certain. The information and history from the planning phase make the hand-off to the project management team simple and collaborative.
