General contracting is the most traditional and common method for construction projects. In this method, the project owner hires an individual architect to develop the plans, and then puts it out for general contractors to “bid the project” once the architect’s plans have been fully developed.
Americon handles many projects based on this approach, which can be very successful with the correct team in place. A more efficient and preferred method of building is Design-Build.
In Americon’s 40+ years of experience, the design-build method typically has a faster start to completion timeline and is less expensive. Having the same team not only design but perform the contracting allows for better communication between crews on the job and project management. It is our goal to provide a seamless timeline of events that get the project done on time and at budget.
