Although design input is but one aspect of preconstruction services, it is the one that dif- ferentiates CMR project delivery from the traditional DBB. Contractor design input may be another phrase for the term constructability. A comprehensive study of applying con- structability concepts specifically to highway projects was completed in and found that to be effective it had to be Preconstruction services agreement in the planning, design, and construction phases of a project Anderson and Fisher ECI method does just this Anderson and Damnjanovic Preconstruction services can include almost anything the agency desires from its CMR.
The range of possibilities runs the gamut from the typical estimating and scheduling assistance to the innovative, such as managing public relations, to the nearly unthinkable, such as preparing and submitting envi- ronmental permits, to the unheard of, for instance developing a plan to relocate vagrants from under a bridge.
Table 26 is a listing of every preconstruction task that was found in the literature, solicitation document content analysis, and case studies. It is not meant to be all inclusive but rather to show how agencies have used this tool to facilitate the successful execution of their projects.
It works on the principle that the CMR will collaborate with the agency and the designer to achieve the owner-defined project goals.
ODOT lists the major preconstruction services as follows: This list of services is not all inclusive but is representa- tive of those generally found in typical CMR highway proj- ects. However, each project has different goals as well as unique requirements. Therefore, most agencies modify the preconstruction services contract to fit the specific require- ments of each project.
Synthesizing the available information and data leads to the idea that preconstruction services can be grouped into the four categories shown in Table An agency can build both its design and preconstruction services contracts around each requirement to ensure collaborative effort and the achievement of project goals.
This is not to say that the study found that design costs increase with this form of project delivery method. Indeed, the finding is just the opposite Utah case study; Uhlik and Eller ; Alder The difference is that the design process proceeds in a different manner than in a DBB contract Kuhn One case study interviewee likened it to a tennis match where the designer and the builder take turns evaluating and improving the design.
One content analysis document stated it like this: Thus, the designer evaluates a sequence of work that is different from the one it normally follows. It might also require the consultant to assign more engineers to the steel design to complete it as quickly as possible.A pre-construction services agreement is a contract for use in a two-stage tendering procedure.
Two stage tendering is more commonly used in larger or more complex projects and involves the employer tendering the project on the basis of an incomplete design, price and programme prepared by the employer’s professional team.

A pre-construction services agreement (PCSA) is used to appoint a design and build contractor to carry out services before entering into a formal building contract. A PCSA is sometimes referred to as a pre-construction agreement (PCA) and is used in two-stage tendering to obtain further design input.
this Agreement shall survive and be assi gned to buyer as a condition of the sale. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Preconstruction Services Agreement to be effective as of th e Day and year first above written. ADMINISTRATIVE PRECONSTRUCTION SERVICES The final category from Table 26, â Administrative Pre- construction Services,â can be separated into three categories: â ¢ External coordination and information, â ¢ GMP internal procurement, and â ¢ Owner/designer assistance.
