Depending on your particular needs, we provide a complete selection of preconstruction and construction services. The information presented in this section gives an overview of both our Delivery Systems and Scope of Services.
Give us a call to discuss your project in more detail.
Determination of the best Delivery System for a particular project will depend on the nature of the project and the Client's particular situation. We always welcome the opportunity to meet with a Client to discuss which system is most suitable for their project.
General Contracting: We provide the complete construction of the project and assume all financial responsibility for the construction. All of the design and related support services are contracted separately with the Client. Forms of the agreement are typically cost plus, guaranteed maximum price (GMP), or lump sum.
Design / Build: We take complete responsibility for the design and construction of the project. The Client is afforded the benefit of only contracting with one entity and of having a single point of responsibility for both the design and construction. Our involvement may begin early in the site selection process and will include site evaluation and analysis, planning and programming, preliminary investigations, design, construction, and final commissioning.
Construction Management: We work in an advisory and/or managerial capacity during both the design and construction phases. The Client may have direct contractual relationships with the subcontractors and suppliers, or we can assume financial responsibility for the project and provide the Client with a guaranteed maximum price (GMP).
