DESIGN BUILD EXPERTS FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY
The General Contracting method of construction is a traditional approach where the project Owner selects an Architect / Engineer to accurately describe the project, including all requirements in plans, specifications, and bid documents. The Contractor is then chosen by hard bid, select bid or a negotiated percentage fee basis.
The project Owner advertises for bidders and accepts the bid from the lowest qualified bidder.
The project Owner, often based on the Architect / Engineers’ recommendations, selects a group of contractors to bid on the project. The lowest qualified bid is usually accepted.
The owner negotiates with one or more contractors, and chooses the contractor that he feels is best for this project. The selection decision is usually based on CONFIDENCE, TRUST and RELATIONSHIP.
