Pre-Construction Meeting

A pre-construction meeting provides an opportunity to communication the requirements and expectations of a construction project to the contractor hired to complete the work. At this meeting, the approved drawings and documents should be thoroughly reviewed with major items discussed by the participants.

  1. Once the construction plans and the Plat have been approved a Pre-construction Meeting must take place before any construction may begin on the project site.  
  2. All items from the Pre-Construction Meeting Checklist must be SUBMITTED to the Public Works Administrative Senior Secretary prior to scheduling the Pre-Construction Meeting.
  3. Attendees should include the Developer, the Engineer of Record, the General Contractor, and all Subcontractors that will be constructing the public infrastructure.
