FGC Construction has extensive experience with budgeting projects small and large.

With 25 years and over $225m in projects completed, our team can quickly give you an idea of scope and cost based on your ideas for the sizing of your project. This is a huge value for our customers. You should budget estimates prior to spending engineering costs. Not that the engineering component isn’t one of the most important.

It is common for customers to start with an engineering company to develop a scope of work prior to budget. They will spend a considerable amount of time and money developing that scope. A budget estimate during data center site selection should consist of understanding how your electrical and mechanical for data racks fits into this new facility.

We must determine Utility Service capacity, overall power and mechanical distribution and size.

The successful project matches those two perspectives together so that the facility is maximized for power and cooling, and the delivery to racks is as efficient as possible.

FGC is an owner’s rep. We sit on the side of the owner as Construction Manager. Therefore hearing the needs and wants of the customer. We can then translate that into orders of magnitude, cost estimates, to provide direction to decisions.


Some budget discussion examples are:

  • Critical load capacity and building load capacity
  • Rack density
  • Electrical and mechanical redundancy
  • Mechanical cooling methods
  • Fire suppression and detection systems
  • Building Management System (BMS) platforms
  • Building Automation System (BAS) platforms
  • Testing and commissioning
  • Future phase preparation and design
  • Networkability and connectivity

Knowing the rough cost magnitude of these items from day one allows our customers to quickly focus on realistic goals, outlined by their total budget.
