Project Inception

The Hagerman Difference… Every project begins with an understanding of your needs. We’ll provide information to help you make the best decisions based on your needs and schedule, even if that means offering solutions that limit the work we do for you. If you don’t need something done, we’ll tell you. The only way to be true to Hagerman values is to be true to every client’s needs.

Efficiency is critical when you’re looking for a partner that is as productive with their time and energy as you are. We’ve earned our expertise by working in the construction industry for more than a century, and our experience helps us bring understanding and value to the entire process. We are flexible. We’ll work with your timing needs, beginning as early as you want and making sure to meet every milestone along the way.

First Steps

  • Project Programming and Needs Analysis
  • Site Selection
  • Economic Development Incentive Negotiations


The Hagerman Difference… We innovate during all phases of construction. We use 3D models to plan out the entire project in our virtual reality studio so you’ll be able to see and walk around the project long before construction begins.

Successful projects require careful planning. The Hagerman Group team’s construction experience helps us to see the big picture, and it ensures preconstruction goes smoothly. Our strong relationships with members of the design community help us transition projects seamlessly over to site subcontractors. We are in constant communication to fix any potential problems during the preconstruction phase. This transparency and excellent communication saves money and results in fewer construction phase changes and helps ensure on-time completion.

Preconstruction Steps

  • Early Design Budgeting
  • Estimating and Value Analysis
  • Design Visualization
  • Scheduling
  • Project Logistics and Planning
  • Project Trade Scoping and Bidding


The Hagerman Difference… We put our 100+ years of experience into every project. Hagerman’s success comes from our highly-skilled workforce. They control timing, quality, safety, and cost.

Our project managers oversee new projects from the very beginning. This early oversight means any issues that might come up during construction are identified and solved before they become an issue. Our experienced project executives also provide support throughout every phase of construction.

The Hagerman Difference… Over 100 years of success in business has helped us understand how important it is to be client-focused. We take pride in having a detailed plan for engagement after projects are completed. Our five-year follow up is a facility manager’s best support.

You will receive peace of mind from our five-year follow-up program, making sure your building is performing as specified and to your satisfaction. No other construction company in the state of Indiana makes this guarantee on their work. Every year, for five years after completion of your project, we will send a team to walk through your building to verify your satisfaction and help facilitate correction with any issues you may have. This program cements our “client for life” strategy.
