DC General Contractors believes that successful projects are products
of successful management. We staff your project with skilled, knowledgeable
people who have proven records of accomplishment in the construction
industry. When construction begins, we identify the long lead-time items,
let major subcontracts, and work with our subcontractors & suppliers to establish feasible construction schedules.
We maintain frequent and open communication from start to finish so that when
choices must be made the Owner will be confident in making an informed decision.
In Construction Management, we welcome the opportunity to act as your Agent
on the project. As CM Agents, we will oversee the project through the
planning, design, and construction phases. We will administer the contracts
with design professionals and the general contractor with your best interests
at the forefront of our actions. It is important to remember that
ideally the CM is selected during the preconstruction stage, thus offering
continuity throughout the duration of the project.
We believe the key to the success of many of our projects has been utilizing
the design/build process when feasible. Working directly with the Owner
to produce both an aesthetically pleasing and cost effective design,
you are assured that everyone on the team begins the process from the
same point of interpretation. Our initial goals of understanding your
design intent and providing input from a budgeting and scheduling standpoint
results in accurate control of costs.
Through the service of design assist, we work in tandem with an Architect
or Designer you have contracted and provide input from the construction
side. We review plans and material specifications to evaluate areas where
cost savings can be obtained through value engineering and present them
to the team. As the Owner, you will have all the information needed to
determine what parts of the project you want to invest in the most.
