ForeSite

Kelchner’s exclusive ForeSite method helps you identify risks before they cause damage or delay.

ForeSite reduces the uncertainties that often exist in the early stages of a project. By applying a unique combination of pre-planning engineering expertise and on-the-ground experience, Kelchner brings new clarity to project planning.

    ForeSite Planning (Pre-Construction) 

  • Conduct a site survey or verify existing topography plan for accuracy
  • Facilitate geo-technical investigation through test holes or borings
    Assess and Identify Risk Factors 

  • Evaluate safety, budget and scheduling risks
  • Use pre-planning to lower total cost of project, reduce change orders and mitigate risk
  • Compile preliminary civil /site design to aid in budgeting process
  • Identify utility conflicts
  • Search out possible gaps in scope to speed up projects and reduce change orders
  • Pre-plan and coordinate with local government agencies to streamline project start

*All Kelchner design recommendations are subject to approval by owners’ civil engineers of record, unless Kelchner is entered into a Design/Build contract with said owner.

  • What they are saying…

    The Kelchner crew kept the project moving ahead, even on snow days, when other contractors were forced to stop work by the weather.

    In my work over the past 30+ years on new construction projects, I have worked with many of the earthwork contractors in the Ohio River Valley region. Kelchner’s performance on the Amazon River Ridge project was among the best I have seen.
