Design/Build is a construction project delivery system that helps us manage our project team from start to finish. The Design/Build system offers transparency for architects, engineers, and consultants. The result is substantial time savings for the owner.
The Construction Manager/General Contractor or (CM/GC) augments the general contractor’s traditional work scope with that of a construction manager. Under a single contract with the owner early in the design phase, the CM/GC allows the general contractor to collaborate with the architect and engineer on design development and design document preparation prior to finalizing budgets and beginning construction. Utilizing this approach, Colas Construction has reduced project time and created significant cost savings for our clients.
A general contractor (GC) is responsible for the means and methods of executing a construction project. GCs manage construction documents and select subcontractors to ensure efficiency and provide expertise throughout the building process. In addition to established relationships with reputable local and regional subcontractors, as a GC, Colas Construction enhances value by self-performing certain aspects of projects at the client’s request. Colas Construction project teams have demonstrated outstanding value and service for a wide variety of complex and difficult project types throughout our company’s history and will continue to do so well into its future.
IPD integrates all partners from the beginning of the design and construction process to the end. Designers, builders and ownership all share a common goal of maximizing productivity and eliminating wasteful process methods to focus on value delivery. The IPD system holds all team members accountable.
Colas Construction uses IPD to generate budgets and to keep contractors, designers and ownership partners well-informed.
