Delivery Methods

 

DESIGN BID BUILD

The Design-Bid-Build project delivery system is the traditional delivery method that has been used for many years in both public and private construction projects throughout the United States. Although many alternatives have emerged, this is still the project delivery system most widely used today.

 

Under the Design-Bid-Build project delivery system, the owner contracts separately for the design and construction of the project and retains responsibility for the overall project management. The design of the project is complete before the contractor is selected, and the contractor is selected through a competitive low bid process. Storm King Group provides accurate, competitive estimating, experienced project management and supervision, and are also known for fair treatment of subcontractor and suppliers.

 

CONSTRUCTION MANAGER AT RISK

The CM at-Risk delivery method utilizes the construction contractor as a consultant to the owner during the preconstruction design phase. The contractor works in tandem with the owner and architect to help develop a budget and a set of construction documents that will be used during construction.

 

During the construction phase, the contractor in a CM at-Risk relationship bears the risk of subcontracting the construction work to trade subcontractors and often guaranteeing the completion of the project within a maximum price established during the design phase. The benefit of the CM at-Risk method over traditional Bid-Build is the involvement of the contractor in the preconstruction phase to help establish a budget and schedule that can be used during construction.

 

Storm King Group has overseen the work effort of numerous projects as a CM at-Risk for several different clients. Our CM at-Risk services on these projects included the review and evaluation of the design professionals' construction documents, schedule management, cost management, development and evaluation of scopes of work, analysis and recommendations of contracting methodology, assembly of bid packages, estimates of probable construction cost, validation of value engineering scope and estimates, quality control, administration of construction contracts as agent for the owner, and incidental administrative services required to facilitate project completion.

 

DESIGN BUILD

The predominate feature of the Design-Build project delivery method is that it provides the owner with a single point of contact, known as the design builder. The Design Build method combines the contractor and designers under one contract and is used to minimize risks for the project owner, and to reduce the length of delivery by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. The project budget is developed concurrently with design at the earliest stages giving the owner multiple design options, along with cost estimates early in the process which optimizes the potential to create a greater value to the owner.

 

Storm King Group has successfully completed many projects over the past 30 years using the design-build delivery system. This experience not only makes us well qualified to tackle any project, but also provides us with a proven method allowing us to successfully accomplish all aspects of a project's work.
