Borderland has a proven record of pre-construction experience:

For decades we have worked with our private development and public project design teams.  We have also served on numerous CMAR and Design-Build teams to provide design phase services.

Our top priority during collaboration with the design team is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the project-specific constraints and expectations of the project owner and designers.  With this clear understanding, we can help define an accurate scope of work, anticipated schedule, and estimated cost of construction.  Borderland’s team-based collaboration results in an implementation plan that identifies measurable solutions to address stakeholder impacts in a cost-effective manner.
