CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT YOU CAN COUNT ON
Focused Work, Exceptional Results
Our company is based in Dodge City, KS, and manages commercial construction and development projects throughout the surrounding region. On each job site, there is a lot to manage, so it is essential to work with a strong, reliable, and experienced team. We work with major clients including hospitals and medical offices, manufacturing facilities, churches, schools, financial institutions, agricultural projects, and commercial development.
Advantages of Self Performance
With experience comes knowledge. Because self-performing construction firms are working on sites every day, they have first-hand experience with labor, materials, and schedules. This data provides accurate job cost information. Hence, our pricing is not a guess, it is based upon historical first-hand knowledge. This enables us to provide the Owner with early and extremely accurate budget estimates. These accurate costs enable good decision making. It also avoids the trap of over-allocating costs to cover a particular item.
One of the greatest assets to hiring a self-performing contractor is their commitment to quality. With their reputation on the line, these companies continue to hone their building methods and techniques. When you continue to perform, you just get better. More importantly, when you know what you are doing, you perform faster and costs go down. We have a total of three concrete crews, a steel erection crew, a carpentry crew, and a finish carpentry crew.
When working with an experienced Design-Build team, the Architect and the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) are working together. Adversarial relationships are removed.
By working closely with the Architect during the conceptual design, we know what the finished product is. It is “a picture is worth a thousand words” factor. We are able to get to the finished product much faster by not having to consult the Architect for every little detail. We have standardized the methods, techniques, and products in the past with the Architect, so we are all the same page before we start. The Architect lets the CM do his job. This saves the Architect time and the plans get done much earlier.
Finally, as a self-performing CM, we don’t look for Change Orders if plans fall short. We work as a team to create solutions.
Building Strategic Partnerships & Successful Projects
From our company’s inception in 1999, we have focused on adopting design/build processes and techniques which improve accuracy and streamline production on every job site. By establishing open communication and encouraging collaboration with our clients, architects, and subcontractors, we forge strategic partnerships with all involved. This method helps us better focus on providing the right talent through every phase of a job.
