With the traditional process of “design-bid-build,” you run the risk of ending up with unqualified contractors, uncontrollable out-of-pocket expenses and poor quality construction. There are many ways the process can breakdown, including discrepancies between drawings and specifications, which can lead to costly changes orders.

Our in-house “Design-Build” method avoids the pitfalls of using unqualified contractors. We apply a multivendor approach, leveraging our tremendous purchase power to give our clients the best possible value. Only pre-qualified contractors who know our methods and process are selected. These reliable professionals already have a vested interest in working with us to ensure high quality and best results for our clients.

Our collaborative approach among partners goes a long way towards eliminating change orders. And, because we are in charge of both design and construction, our clients have less exposure to risk.
