Gateway Construction Company typically begins the construction/development process with a needs assessment of the inquiring organization. Gateway has often forgone opportunities for new building projects by making alternative recommendations to clients. Sometimes, a prospect's existing facility, along with some improvements, is the only thing that is needed. Other times, Gateway is able to save an organization thousands of dollars by making creative, practical recommendations.
The majority of Gateway's work is comprised of negotiated Design-Build contracts. A Design-Build relationship simply means that the contractor works with the client from the beginning of a project and represents the client during the pre-construction phase. The pre-construction phase is comprised of the following: zoning/planning approvals, architectural/design services, civil engineering services, and mechanical/electrical/plumbing engineering services. One benefit of a Design-Build relationship is substantial cost-savings through pre-negotiated pricing of the pre-construction team members. A recent study shows that design-build projects are delivered 33.5% faster at a 6.1% lower cost [Engineering Professor, Victor Sanvido, of Penn State].
Gateway offers project management contracts to organizations as the need arises. A Project Management relationship requires the client to pay all expenses related to the project. The contractor is then compensated with a flat percentage fee of all construction costs. A Project Management contract is typically reserved for non-profit organizations. Through the actual non-profit organization paying the actual construction expenses, the organization is able to save taxes on materials and products-acting accountants or tax attorneys should first be consulted.
