Many construction errors can be mitigated through one powerful step: peer plan review. The Burgess peer plan review is a thorough review of construction drawings to help identify errors prior to beginning construction. What makes the peer plan review so useful is that it occurs during pre-construction. Errors caught during pre-construction often result in substantial savings of both time and money later down the road.
Peer Plan Reviews
REDUCE THE RISK UPFRONT.
Make sure the drawings and spec sheets are complete
Make sure the specified systems and materials are congruent with one another in order to maintain warranty
Make sure applicable codes are met
Make sure industry best practices are being followed
Make sure changes to the plan are communicated effectively to the construction team
THE STANDARD PLAN REVIEW PROCESS
Once we receive a set of architectural plans for the project, we'll begin our review. A typical Peer Plan Review for a 300 unit garden style apartment project takes roughly two weeks to complete. Once complete, we'll provide you with an electronically editable document outlining our findings. Next, we'll schedule a conference call with your management team to discuss the findings and answer any questions about our recommendations. At this point, if you've paired the plan review with a Mockup Review, we'll schedule a field meeting with the construction team and key trades to go over correct installation of assemblies, as noted within our Peer Plan Review..
