In those instances where architectural design has already been completed and the Client requires a fixed price for construction, First Dakota is fully capable of providing our General Contracting services.
Based on its years of experience, First Dakota will develop through competitive subcontractor bidding and a thorough examination of the drawings a fixed price to the Client for the completion of its project. Through a complete review of the plans and a good understanding of the Client’s needs, First Dakota will look for omissions and layout the costs of those omissions, wherever possible, prior to contracting with the Client in an effort to avoid costly change orders that neither First Dakota nor the Client desire.
In addition First Dakota will offer, where appropriate, suggestions for adjustments to the drawings and specifications, which if approved, result in a savings to the Client.
Every construction project is unique in scope, but our process is systemically applied to each construction project.
We seek to get involved early in the design phase so that we can manage the project more efficiently, provide effective building solutions, and identify challenges early on to mitigate design changes after construction commencement.
This involves detailed pre-construction planning that is crucial to successful construction and on-time delivery, and allows the client and team a clear pathway to the bidding process, construction phase, and through to completion.
