Naturally, in addition to general contracting, construction management, and design/build, March Associates also provides expert pre-construction services.

By thoroughly planning and coordinating your project before construction starts, we can help your entire commercial real estate development project run smoother and finish sooner, within budget.

We’ve provided pre-construction guidance for many commercial development projects in New York City, New York State, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania: distribution centers, refrigerated warehouses, supermarkets, retail stores/malls, hospitality/hotels, fitness centers, recycling centers, and more.

Take a look at some of the projects where we’ve applied our pre-construction skills and experience (and made our clients happy).

For pre-construction services, we typically charge a flat monthly fee.

As your planning partner and advocate, we will communicate frequently and transparently, with our senior management closely engaged in your project.
