Agreement For Preconstruction Services

PCSas are often used in design and construction projects to obtain early bids from the contractor. They can also be used to obtain pre-construction services from specialists ordered either by the contractor or by the client (for example. B in the case of a construction management contract), or through private financing initiative (PFI) projects or by the Public Private Partnership (PPP), in order to obtain contributions to the contractor for a consortium offering a project. JCT`s Pre-Acceleration Services Agreement (General Contractor) is designed to designate a contractor for preliminary work as part of a two-stage tendering process. The PCSA defines the benefits that the contractor needs at the construction stage and is generally similar to a consulting agreement. It should be specified whether the contractor is carrying out design work, whether he has a design responsibility and what happens to that responsibility if he is not designated for the second stage. It should also define payment terms and possible provisions for deferral of payment. The agreement covers the period of submission of the first tender for the filing of a second final phase of the tender and the opening of a main contract for the construction phase. At Bluestone Construction, we offer a Preconstruction Services Agreement (EPI) that includes drawings, specifications, certificates and budget to be integrated into the architecture and design of the house. While PSAs are less used, Bluestone owner Kevin Reed says, “I really think it`s the right way to choose a builder.” However, a longer period of familiarity with the project improves relationships and reduces learning curves and program performance, so that tender prices for two-tier contracts may initially be higher than tenders at a stage subject to total competition, but the final tally tends to reduce variations and requirements. Competition can be introduced in the second phase through an open approach to outsourcing.

The contractor in charge of the PCSA is not necessarily designated for the second phase of construction. However, the client inevitably loses his influence in the second phase of the tendering process, as the contractor is integrated into the team and potential competitors lose interest as soon as they discover that another contractor has received the first tender.
