Design-Build

Ramtech's Accelerated Building System prefabricated construction is an ideal method for design-build contracts, allowing you to work with one company that can both design and build your new facility. We do this through a vertically integrated process that combines our own Architect/Engineering design team and the manufacturing of our own product, together with a highly skilled construction management group that supervises the installation and site work using our own crews. The process starts with our ability to offer you our No Cost Project Planning and Budgeting service. After an initial programming meeting we provide you with a basic floor plan and site plan design, an exterior rendering of the proposed facility, outlined building specifications, and a preliminary budget. Once the preliminary budget is approved, the design phase begins with a fee that rarely exceeds 2% of the preliminary budget amount. A more in depth programming meeting and design review will then take place in order to bring the design to an 85% completion level. This will allow a final price to be presented to you in the form of a Stipulated Sum (fixed price) or a Guaranteed Maximum Price. Once the design and final pricing are accepted, the design is completed to 100% and the construction phase will begin. This single-source design-build approach yields:

  • Substantially reduced design and construction costs
  • Minimized change orders
  • A faster project completion time
  • Superior quality with enhanced safety
  • Greater sustainability and a greener project approach

Ramtech has developed an extensive resume of prefabricated construction projects across multiple industries that have used the design-build delivery system. We've been able to develop a truly unique and superior solution for our commercial, government, and institutional customers. Our single-source approach streamlines the entire process and takes the guesswork out of what you spend, by providing a firm fixed price before any construction activity ever takes place.

 

Crane-set of building sections
