Anthony DeFranco, PE- featured in Glens Falls Business Journal’s-Construction Planning Section

Anthony DeFranco, PE-Consulting Engineer was one of three local consultants featured in the Glens Falls Business Journal’s February 2012 issue that highlighted how planning from start to finish is critical to the success of your construction project.

Tony noted that in establishing an initial cost estimate for a project, it is important to consider the client’s expressed budget and having a contingency for unforeseen expenses that cannot be determined until the project is started.

Anthony DeFranco, PE noted the following items are helpful for a successful project are :

1. Recent Survey that depicts the current site’s conditions

2. Knowing the local regulations pertaining to the site’s location

3. Locating any Sensitive Areas on the site that need to be avoided

4. Approximate project budget and accurate cost estimate

5. Communication is also key- The accuracy of a building professional’s cost estimate is based on all of the known information available which increases the chances that the construction project will be within budget and be successful.

Other key professionals to consider on a construction project along with an engineer are a wetland specialist, surveyor, land-use attorney, architect and builder/contractor.
