Pre-Construction Technology Journey to Success – EBPowerCon 2022

February 24, 2022 | By Anthony Capkun

February 24, 2022 – Pre-construction costs typically range between 1% and 3% of the total project value, yet poor planning and implementation can affect the outcome of a project well before you even set foot onsite. Sometimes, issues can last through the course of the project, and end up being much more costly than initial projections.

Without question, pre-construction and estimation is the time to lay the foundation for a successful project, so why is it so difficult to control costs once a project begins?

Procore’s Aaron Lober joins EBPowerCon to discuss the application of technology to pre-construction and estimation. Through technology, a contractor can start documenting processes digitally, thereby accelerating pre-construction processes with greater accuracy.


We will also hear excerpts from Aaron’s discussion with Quebec-based electrical contractor Grimard, which embraced technology to streamline processes and address some of the challenges the company was experiencing.

Launched by Electrical Business Magazine, EBPowerCon engages with subject matter experts—one-on-one and via panel discussion—to shed light on trends and technologies so as to empower our professional electrical community of contractors, engineers, maintenance, and related stakeholders with knowledge and insight into markets and opportunities.
