From viability analysis to value engineering

Financial planning for construction projects challenges project owners under the best of circumstances. In a volatile market, getting the best for your project starts with Luke Draily Construction’s preconstruction services.

In Kansas City and beyond, we keep eyes on market trends. Our expertise in value engineering saves clients money and time without compromising quality. We work as a team with the architect and engineers on proven preconstruction processes.

Pre-construction builds a strong foundation

The earlier we start collaborating on your project, the more we’re able to do for you.

Whole Foods Markets, being the nation's premier organic and natural foods grocery chain, seeks to find partners in building our stores that can join us in getting our message to the public. We negotiated our construction contracts for the Shell and Tenant Improvement package for our new 55,000 square foot store in Town and Country, MO with Bob Becker, president of Luke Draily Construction. The process allowed us to review all sub contractor bids and material purchases together through an open book policy and maintained a hands on management style that helped to monitor our budgets and see first hand the inner workings of Luke Draily. Bob and his entire staff were committed to value engineering our project throughout the design and construction process. They responded efficiently whenever redirection issues arose, never yielding the best of Quality and Craftmanship. Thanks to their excellent communication and dedication to detail, Whole Foods opened on time and on budget. Every customer and visitor to this store is able to quickly see the quality of construction and attention to detail that marks this as one of our BEST stores in the Midwest Region. It will be our plan to use Luke Draily Construction again and have, in fact already started conversations on several future projects.

Thank you for a great job. Everyone at St. Anne's is delighted with the new building, and the Building Committee and I are very happy with the work Luke Draily did for us and for the way in which you did it. You came in when we were reeling from several astronomical bids and worked with us to make the project affordable without sacrificing quality of construction or square footage. In October, you promised that we'd be able to worship in the building on Easter Sunday, and you kept the promise. Everyone was great to work with, and their regular meetings with us kept us informed and enabled us to deal with issues as they arose. Finally, we're very pleased with the quality of the construction and with the way the punch list has been handled. so, thanks for everything. The work you do makes a significant contribution to the life of the community. May you continue to prosper!

Tutera has entrusted over $100 million worth of projects to Luke Draily Construction

Luke Draily was involved from the early planning through completion, provided valued engineering throughout the project and coordinated the work of the design team. They have shown the flexibility to adapt to our needs and go the extra mile when small or large changes occurred. This allowed us to continuously improve the product for our future residents while construction proceeded. Luke Draily used an open-book approach to the project which provided transparency in all aspects of their engagement. Their commitment to this process created trust, teamwork and resulted in competitively priced projects with award winning quality. Tutera previously served as its own general contractor in our last generation of projects. However, we lacked the processes, access to quality subcontractors and manpower needed to engage on the scale of projects we were currently undertaking. Luke Draily was able to fulfill this crucial role at this critical time with full transparency.
