Design/Build, Partnering & Construction Management

Although we have concentrated our efforts on general contracting for many years, we have seen the construction industry gradually shift to a more complex and sophisticated business. Rather than the typical construction process of bidding a project by plans and specifications prepared by an independent architect or engineer, we see the terms design/build, partnering, construction management, project development, pre-construction services, etc., being introduced into the construction industry. Each of these concepts is slightly different in their management philosophies, but the goal is always to build a quality project on schedule.

Leander Construction, Inc. goal is to understand our client’s needs in order to satisfy all project requirements through a unique process which utilizes specific expertise of the owner, design professionals and members of the construction industry to achieve the original vision.

We use a strategic approach through integral involvement of the Construction Team throughout all phases of design and construction processes. We will take advantage of our in-house resources of estimators, project managers, and field personnel to maintain the affordability, the constructability, and the functionality of the project in an approach they call Pre-Construction Services.

Our Pre-Construction Services will offer the benefit to our clients of fast-track project execution with condensed schedules and reduced costs. This is possible through our partnering approach which involves the development of relationships with our clients, consultants, suppliers and subcontractors to establish upfront project goals to ensure a successful end result for all parties.

Leander Construction, Inc. has a wide breadth of experience in plan and specification bidding that has proven very valuable both to clients and themselves. However, many times the owner is unhappy because the bids are over their budget as a result of their project being over-designed. If LCI is successful in implementing their pre-construction services and are able to provide their services from the inception of the design process through the construction process, their clients will eliminate any surprises. Their early involvement will aid in the timely, on-budget completion of any project.

All of these approaches require the contractor to work with the design team, whether in-house or independent, to develop budgets, produce design and construction schedules, develop phased construction schemes and offer value-engineering cost alternatives. We analyze projects to determine long-lead materials and equipment and then procure them early in the process.
