Full Service Approach to the Building Process
Design Build is an integrated delivery process, where we are your only source, with absolute accountability for both the design of your building and its construction. We develop a close working relationship, not only with our clients, but with the design and construction professionals working on each project.
We work as a team, united under the direction of an experienced project manager. That’s how we’re able to carefully control safety, quality, cost, schedule and final delivery. The Design Build approach consistently results in high-quality, distinctive projects designed and built to meet the needs of our clients. And it’s how we’re able to deliver projects at the earliest possible time for our clients.
The Team Approach
The owner, architect and general contractor work together from the beginning of the project through the completion to achieve a common goal: a quality project that is cost-effective, built for a competitive price and completed in a timely manner. This is what we like to call Guaranteed Maximum Price general contracting and it’s a project delivery method that we apply on every single project.
We are an advocate for the owner throughout the process from planning to post-construction. That’s the most important part of our construction management services. These services include:
• Safety and quality management
• Program review
• Cost estimating, cost control and contingency management
• Managing and controlling all construction operations, including daily field coordination and construction schedule management
• Value engineering
• Constructability reviews
• Bid phase management
• Document control
• Submittal management
• Change management
• Management of payment applications
• Contract management
• Correspondence and communication management
• Close out
We assume the construction risk. With our approach to general contracting, we’re a constructor and we assume, for the owner, the entire construction risk. We hold all trade contracts, provide an up-front guaranteed maximum price for construction and are solely responsible for project cost and schedule.
Not only do we manage construction projects – we build them. One of our goals is to exceed the expectations of our customers, which is why we take extra care to deliver our high-quality workmanship in a safe and timely manner. We are dedicated to integrity, craftsmanship and doing the job right the first time.
In addition to our general construction services, we can offer capabilities in layout, field engineering, forensic demolition and investigation, concrete forming, placing and finishing, rough carpentry, finish carpentry, door, frame and hardware installation and millwork.
