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…

    Contractor and employees are committed to producing a quality product in an efficient manner with safety being first and foremost. Contractor frequency performs above and beyond their scope and is always responsive to the CM staff when asked to perform outside of their scope. Contractor is extremely reliable and is a valuable asset to the site.
