Overall project success relies heavily upon the decisions made at the initial stages of the job. Combining skilled professionals with an open and collaborative approach, WC's comprehensive preconstruction services offer advantages on projects of various sizes and complexities, including:

Providing the assessments and recommendations necessary to make timely, informed and data-driven business decisions. Better serving the interests of the project through relevant suggestions and hands-on partnership with owners, designers and construction teams. Helping to manage the overall process by tracking details and holding team members accountable.

Our preconstruction services go well beyond traditional open-book cost estimating and value engineering to create more reliable schedules and estimates. We use the most relevant tools, technologies and processes, and get the right people involved at the appropriate time, to drive down project costs while maintaining design intent and the customer’s overall goals and objectives.


During the construction phase, we continue to work closely with the owner, architect and all subcontractors to ensure that a project stays on schedule and under budget. After the project is complete, we take every precaution to ensure that the building meets the owner’s expectations.

Below is a list of services we commonly provide during the preconstruction, construction and postconstruction phases. This list of services has been developed based on our extensive experience with WC projects.

We have also included a list of documentation tools that Layton uses to manage WC projects. These tools include new technologies and tried-and-true methods for managing a project of any size.
