At UCI, we put our dedication into design-build projects by utilizing our experience, skill and resources. We work directly with the owner and select a talented design team to work with the build team. Benefits of our design-build method include:
- Single source responsibility (less conflict)
- Potential for lower costs constructibility
- Early commissioning and ROI
- Cost predictability
- Reduced owner staffing
- Allows personnel to focus on key competencies
- Reduced owner risk
- Increased innovation and product quality
We can handle projects from start to finish, from engineering to construction. We’ll act as your single point of contact through engineering and design, procurement of equipment and construction materials as well as construction services. Each project is carefully evaluated, and we will communicate with you throughout each phase as the project moves forward.
Contractors don’t typically enter the process until the design is complete, so we will coordinate and manage all subcontractors from start to finish to assure quality and safety throughout your project. Qualities of our design-bid-build option include:
- Competitive bidding process
- Easy to manage, universally known
- Typical project duration is longer than other delivery methods
- Define project prior to build
- Owner and designer are responsible for completeness and accuracy of construction documents
We can handle your project from beginning to end and can be hired as a subcontractor on specific projects. We also rely on our database of pre-qualified subcontractors in order to perform exceptional work in accordance with our standards.
At UCI, we have a hands-on approach in managing projects from beginning to end. Our construction managers will work with the design team to develop and budget your project, and we’ll use our Predictable Performance® system to ensure that every aspect is thoroughly planned out. We’ll ensure that your project is completed to your specifications, time and budget.
TIME & MATERIAL / COST PLUS
We use Time & Material (T&M) / Cost Plus contracts when it is difficult to accurately estimate or define the schedule of your project. We work closely with project owners to calculate costs, and we continually review and update the project owner with T&M / Cost Plus costs throughout the project cycle.
