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…

    Other contractors may be good at the first 90% of the job, but don’t measure up at the final 10%. It’s difficult to get them back, and often there is a lot of cleanup at the end. With Kelchner, I always have access and they follow through on their commitments to clean up.

    I don’t recommend Kelchner Excavating to anyone. I want to keep them freed up for our own projects!
