The Design/Build Contracting Method

Upon selection as Design/Build Contractor, CCI will work with the client and our architect:

Develop the best possible design solution to the program, while working within the established budget.

Assign a project manager and superintendent who will jointly be responsible for all project administration duties.

Bring other construction team members into the Design/Build process, such as civil and structural engineers, as required.              

Negotiate key trades, such as mechanical, sprinkler, and electrical systems, up front.

Competitively bid trades with pre-qualified subcontractors and suppliers.

Work together with a common focus to provide the client with a durable, functional facility built around the submitted lump sum proposal.

Review in detail the proposed scope of work with the client to assure that the assumed scope of work meets the client’s expectations and needs.

Construct the project using traditional contracting methods in the shortest time possible, following the finalization of the scope of work and negotiated lump sum figure.

Deliver the project to the client at a minimum cost by “fast tracking” the construction sequence around the design process.

Manage all aspects of the work, including project administration, schedule reporting and quality control during construction.

Take full responsibility for job site safety inspections and subcontractor compliance.

Provide as-built documents along with all operation and maintenance manuals when the project is complete, so that the facility can be maintained after the standard one year warranty period following substantial completion.

The Construction Management Contracting Method

Construction Management is the contracting method utilized by clients who want the benefits of having a contractor on-board during the entire planning and design phase of the project.  This method is very similar to the Design/Build Contracting method except that the design professionals work for the owner instead of CCI.
