TAKING THE INDUSTRY TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The construction industry continues to move toward the design-build approach for contracting, an approach we have been employing for many years. Done correctly it saves money while reducing the overall project schedule. We excel at design-build projects due to our vast experience and our close relationships with subcontractors and design professionals.
Nichols Contracting will compose a team that includes our project managers, field personnel, subcontractors, architects and engineers. This team will work together to develop a design that is customized to the products being used for the project. This allows for increased field efficiency and minimizes deficiencies that can lead to lost time and change orders.
A significant portion of the pre-construction schedule is reduced by establishing the team up front and eliminating much of the bidding and procurement process. In addition, on-site construction can begin concurrently with finalizing the design and permitting.
