Commercial construction is the cornerstone of our business.
We take pride in the portfolio of work we’ve completed over the years. Our field and office staff are well versed in a large variety of building types and delivery methods. No two projects are alike. Each client has a unique list of priorities. Our team will assist you in determining that list, and prioritizing it. We will develop a design, plan and budget to help achieve success within these guidelines. To this end, we offer a variety of project delivery methods:
If the project is not complicated we can often complete the preliminary design in-house, saving the customer some initial costs. We will acquire the services of engineers or architects as needed or when required by local building codes. A project budget is developed early in the process.
Again, if the project is straight-forward, but requires the services of an architect, we can coordinate the project in such a manner that fees and time from design to completion are reduced significantly. Costs are determined up front, and there is no cost for minor re-design or pricing if initial costs don’t meet the budget.
Any project — negotiated, in-house, or design-build — can be completed under a cost plus agreement. Unit costs, prices from subcontractors and material suppliers are determined to develop the budget, and the project is billed based on the actual cost plus a stipulated fee.
Again, under any project method, another delivery system is construction management (CM). CM agreements allow for Midstates Builders to manage the project for a stipulated fee, but all invoices are paid directly by the owner. The CM is still responsible for overall site coordination, safety and project progress and quality.
