Preconstruction & Bidding

Our goal is to provide the owner with a project consistent with his/her long term goals. WCS Construction, LLC will provide the owner with an objective overview of products and their intended use. We endeavor to attract and secure the number of bidders necessary to obtain competitive pricing of work. Through proper planning the most effective costs savings are realized.

Construction

During the construction phase, WCS Construction’s management procedures are strengthened by our preconstruction methods. The transition from planning construction to the start of construction allows us to better control time and cost within the budget and schedule parameters set for the project.

Wood Frame Construction

One of our fastest growing areas of expertise is that of wood frame construction over slab-on-grade or podium parking garage. Where residential height limitations are a concern, wood frame structures offer a more cost effective alternative with savings between 15-25% compared to concrete and structural steel buildings.

In October of 2008, the wood framing work on The Reserve at Tysons Corner project was honored with a rare visit by Canadian and Japanese delegations. Timber and lumber industry officials wished to tour the project to see an outstanding example of this construction type.

LEED & Green Building

WCS Construction works to increase the efficiency of the resources our buildings will utilize. It is important to implement improvements in design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal throughout the building’s life cycle so that we can reduce the impact on human health and the environment.

Having a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited individual on your team is worth 1 LEED point.

Our estimating staff is capable of pricing all the possible LEED points and that is invaluable in ascertaining the costs of the various credits and analyzing which credits are reasonable to obtain from a cost, time and building infrastructure perspective.
