Sound planning is the fundamental cornerstone of project success. Preconstruction management ensures that when it is time to start physical construction in the field, every angle has been covered. Hiring a competent, experienced preconstruction management team at the early stages of project design can avoid claims and cost overruns. ​The absolute necessity of laying a solid foundation is the reasons preconstruction management is possibly the most important of all commercial construction services. Our preconstruction management services include:

 Before actual construction commences, checking as-built conditions, dimensions and conditions of existing surfaces scheduled to be re-used 

Reviewing drawings for the coordination of primary consultants, and performing cost comparisons for alternative materials and methods
Reviewing drawings for the coordination of primary consultants, and performing cost comparisons for alternative materials and methods
Hazard identification and mitigation utilizing elimination and/or engineered strategies to keep site workers safe
“Bayley’s preconstruction services are very well thought through. They are great at preparing you with accurate budgets along the way so that there are no surprises when it comes time for construction…”

Design-Build is a delivery method that streamlines and simplifies two previously separate phases of construction: Project Design and General Construction. Design-Build commercial contractors form a team that includes architects, builders, engineers, estimators and other members of the construction community. The Design-Build team has five main phases:

Selecting the Design-Build Team

Preconstruction Management Assessment
Architectural Design
Unlike classical construction projects, Design-Build commercial contractors projects’ focus on collaboration and thus, these phases tend to overlap instead of remaining autonomous. By combining such a diverse multitude of industrial forces, design build commercial contractors deliver results previously thought unachievable in classical construction’s hierarchical terms. Bayley Construction has been working on design build commercial contractors projects since the early 1980’s when this format began growing in popularity. Our strategic alliances with highly skilled experienced architects and engineers allow us to quickly and efficiently assemble custom teams whose expertise can be directly applied to a multitude of construction types. When it comes to mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection, Bayley Construction’s Design-Build commercial contractors have the knowledge and experience to prepare bid packages taking into account the timing required to build a design team, while managing the competitive process of buying out these trades.



Your Professional space is crucial to your business, but moving into a new office or retail space can be a very stressful experience.

Bayley Construction uses management tools as effective methods to distribute information and to control and organize projects. We are the main “conduit” of information flow and must be the most organized part of the project team. Our Project Management database, built on the Microsoft Access® platform, allows us to track and link all information processes and systems together. With this system, nothing is ever “forgotten” and all issues, revisions and questions are properly documented and dealt with expediently. The following project logs are management tools linked within the database and are used by our teams:

Cost Control Log
Submittal Log and Submittal Forecast Listing by CSI Division
Material Procurement and Delivery Schedules
Subcontract Buyout Log for Each Trade
Rental Equipment Log for General Conditions and Self-Performed Work
Biweekly Project Management Meeting Agenda and Minutes
Other Management tools within our Project Management processes and job field management:

CPM Schedule and Updates
Eight-Week Short Interval Schedules
Subcontract Paperwork Status Report (Indicates status of insurance certificates/ endorsements; subcontract agreement; bonds; signed and executed sub-change orders; subcontract close-out documents.)
Project Superintendent and Project Engineer Daily Reports
Complete Project Safety Program and Site Specific Safety Manual (Administered by our Regional Safety Engineer in conjunction with our Corporate Safety Officer. This includes all training, forms and reporting systems, which comply with or exceed OSHA safety procedures.)
Overhead trade (mechanical, fire protection, plumbing, electrical, acoustical, drywall) coordination meetings before, during and after shop drawing phase to assure all trades are coordinated to avoid conflicts and claims that usually arise in this area where each trade is trying to establish their “zone” to install their materials.


The word “quality” is a byproduct of the efforts we put into the project up front, as reflected by constant monitoring of the specifications of materials the architect has called out. We believe the essence of true quality control is in constant inspection, verifications and reminders consistently communicated from upper management to superintendents, along with our teams having a deep knowledge of the job. In order to accomplish our expectations from subcontractors, we inspect their work on a regular and consistent basis, with corrections made well before punch list reviews.


We consider Critical Path Method Scheduling one of the most important pieces of our entire construction process. We initiate and drive this process from the beginning of the pre-construction phase. All activities are listed, including critical milestone dates required of the owner, consultants, city officials and the contractor.

Schedules are status-updated, issued every month and reviewed at major status meetings. The superintendents create, maintain and issue 8-week Short Interval Schedules. These are tracked against the CPM schedule for progress and are exceptionally detailed to show specific phased areas.

The schedule is used in bidding out all sub trades and becomes an exhibit each subcontractor is contractually bound to.
