Preconstruction is the key stage in guaranteeing the success of a project. This essential process that happens before the foundation is laid allows us to draw a strategic line of action to reduce variables, stick to the original plan, and avoid adjustments that impact budget and delivery times.
Headed by the builders, it is a conceptual planning stage with the best opportunities for a positive impact on the cost, schedule, and value of the project long before construction begins.
The expert and multidisciplinary team at Grupo Casgo will present a detailed breakdown of programs, costs, alternative materials, and construction systems, which will serve as the guide for project decision. This planning will benefit its profitability, meeting the expectations of all those involved.
This process focuses on planning and robust design, with technological innovation, sustainability, and purity as the guiding axes, which will allow your project to adhere to modern construction. We base our work on the lean construction, BIM, and value engineering methods. Below is some more information about them.
BIM - Building Information Modeling
This is a method that makes it easier for us to locate and solve issues in construction processes, as well as to monitor resources in order to avoid cost overruns and waste. We created a 3D model to manage and program each process in detail, which allows us to increase profitability and minimize project risks. We have an interdisciplinary team of collaborators with whom we use Revit, Navisworks, and TEKLA, as well as an internal control system with integrated BIM (VScontrol).

At Grupo Casgo, we share a vision with the Lean construction system: adding value to each of our projects, instead of just controlling costs and schedules as would be done in a traditional construction system. We make precise improvements, thanks to our project management techniques. We focus on flexibility and learning to face potential issues. Our main objective is to optimize each project from a global perspective instead of leaving this important task to subcontractors.
With this system, the experts involved work as a team. We optimize performance beginning at the modeling stage, which results in a better use of resources, work processes, and materials, in higher quality construction and facilities, and in greater satisfaction from our customers and end users.
- Lower costs
- Less delays
- Greater certainty
- Better use of resources
- Higher efficiency in the construction
- Greater client satisfaction
Because of our value engineering, we are able to identify and eliminate unnecessary costs, focus on the best use of resources and the quality of our work, and increase the value of products, ensuring we meet the performance requirements of each at the lowest cost. By using this method from the start of the project, we can improve construction deadlines without altering the essence of the work.
By always keeping the key result accelerators in mind and maintaining the relationship between cost and value, we were able to reduce the total price of construction by 25% in Punto Guadiana, located in Durango, where we were able to move from a conventional precast concrete system to a post-tension concrete system, which allowed us substantial savings without altering the initial project deadlines.
