Since 2002, Brothers Group Construction has served Jacksonville and the surrounding areas in Florida. We understand that each and every project is unique and the needs of each owner are different. Our team of professionals relies on their experience and knowledge to help identify and implement the best delivery method for your project.
When retained for construction management, Brothers Group Construction represents the owner and is hired to manage the construction process from planning though project completion including schedule management, cost control and resolving any problems that may arise related to the project. In collaboration with the architect and engineer selected by the owner, the general contractor assists in the bidding process of subcontractor trades and suppliers.
If retaining the key responsibility by the owner or their representative is preferred, Brothers Group Construction can be retained directly as a general contractor in a conventional method to manage the subcontractors, keep the schedule, and stay within the budget. Typically the owner selects an architect, constructions plans have been finalized and the next step is to receive competitive bids as to negotiate with a general contractor. Many times the owner will select a firm based on price, however relationship, experience and qualifications are factored in as well.
Design/Build is quickly becoming the preferred method of delivery for many owners as the benefits includes a shortened project schedule, reduction in project costs, and a higher quality deliverable. The contractor is responsible for both the design and the construction stages of the project by having all risk and responsibility transferred to them by way on contract. Design-Build is often referred to as “turn-key” as the general contractor, design team, and owner work together as one team early in the design phases of the project.
By combining the two methods, design/build and construction management delivery styles, a hybid method is created where all responsibility and a majority of the risk are transferred to the contractor, and also a transparent cost structure of construction management. The advantages to combining these methods is a notable shortened project delivery time and cost control.
