A sequential design-bid-build process, typically delivered under a lump-sum or cost-reimbursable contract, is the traditional method of project delivery.
You will retain an architect or engineer to design the project and to prepare the necessary drawings and specifications. After the architect/engineer completes the drawings and issues them for pricing, you will then select a general contractor through a sole source or a competitive bid process. The contractor’s proposal is based on the complete design and schedule provided by the owner. This method is most widely used by clients who have the resources and construction experience necessary to independently contract with the architect or engineer and general contractor.
The Benefits to You:
You maintain project control and may benefit from the risk that can exist with other project delivery methods.
As the general contractor, Stenco will provide a confirmed price after design is complete and before construction begins. We will execute the project and generally assume the risk of cost overruns based on clearly defined budget and scope parameters.
