Pre-Construction & Planning Services

Pre-Construction & Planning


When you retain Eastern Companies and Eastern Construction as your construction manager, you’ve taken the first step in guaranteeing a successful project. Once chosen, Eastern will recommend that the owner, construction manager, architect and engineer meet on a regular basis to discuss the construction program, budget and scheduling. Eastern will chair the meetings and distribute the minutes to all involved parties. Once Eastern is in receipt of a signed fee agreement and deposit, as a value-added incentive and a gesture of good faith we will provide to you, at zero cost, all pre-construction services described below.
