Design-Bid-Build

Some of SteelCo’s projects still adhere to the conventional project delivery approach. In the Design-Bid-Build method, the project owner first hires an architect or designer to create detailed construction plans and specifications. Once the design is finalized, the owner puts the project out to bid, inviting construction firms to submit proposals based on the provided plans. Contractors then bid on the project, offering their estimated costs for construction based on the provided design documents. The owner selects the contractor with the most competitive offering and bid, and the construction work begins once the contract is awarded. This method allows for a clear separation between the design and construction phases, providing the owner with more control over the design process and potentially lowering construction costs through competitive bidding.

One potential advantage of the Design-Bid-Build approach is its
transparency and accountability. Since the design and construction phases are handled separately, there is a clear distinction of responsibilities between the architect, the contractor, and the owner. This division can lead to more thorough oversight and quality control throughout the project’s lifecycle. Additionally, the competitive bidding process can result in lower construction costs for the owner, as contractors strive to offer the most competitive pricing to win the project. Furthermore, owners have the flexibility to select different contractors and architects based on their expertise and track record, potentially leading to higher-quality outcomes tailored to the project’s specific requirements.

However, the 
Design-Bid-Build method also has its drawbacks compared to a turn-key Design-Build service. One notable disadvantage is the potential for conflicts or delays during the construction phase. Since the contractor is not involved in the design process, there may be discrepancies or ambiguities in the plans that only become apparent during construction, leading to change orders, disputes, and potentially project delays. Additionally, the sequential nature of the design-bid-build approach can result in longer project durations compared to design-build, where design and construction activities can overlap, potentially accelerating the project timeline. Finally, the lack of integration between the design and construction teams in design-bid-build projects may hinder innovation and collaboration, potentially limiting the project’s overall efficiency and effectiveness.

SteelCo's Competitive Advantages

At SteelCo, our brand promise is to be a constructive team, forming inspiring spaces and solutions for our clients. Our 3 C’s are a nod to our company roots and history in PEMB (pre-engineered metal buildings): tangibly and intangibly, both goals are aligned in bringing together parts to create a much greater whole.

With our capabilities as a turnkey Design/Build firm and deep industry expertise, we understand our capacity to influence, shape, and construct on behalf of our clients and our innate responsibility to deliver for them. Over the years, our credibility has elevated beyond just construction quality and management—we are a force for ideation, design, and guidance as well. We’re able to concept from scratch but we push for collaboration with clients for better end results. Lastly, our culture embodies a client-first philosophy and approach—we prioritize communication, present solutions, and provide value engineering for each and every one of our clients

Seamless solutions, deep industry expertise.

Our solutions run smoothly—and drive results.

More than PEMB experts, we are commercial contractoring experts offering seamless design-build solutions. Our approach, no matter where a client loops us in, is to understand their wants and needs, then use our industry expertise, connections, and honed judgment to support them.

A single POC ensures less project inefficiencies while directing in-house design, sourcing, and sitework. And our history as a private-label PEMB retailer provides us with access to a wide network of vendor relationships and top-tier materials.

Involved team with real field experience.

We’ve been there and will be where clients need us.

There’s a reason we can accurately ballpark estimates on the fly. Some call it intuition—we call it experience. Our team has 5-10 years more of it than the average PM. Its this hands-on work that gives us credibility, a greater understanding of industry processes, and the ability to know what works.

Our Project Managers are heavily involved in every project from concept to completion to help mitigate risks, ensure a high-quality product, compress timelines, and provide clients with peace of mind.

Constructive, trusted partners.

When it comes to buildings, we mean business—but our partnerships are always personal.

At SCB, we view our partnership as one that’s constructive—we are positive and supportive, always forming solutions to project challenges. In our communication, we are thorough, timely, and transparent. We welcome fresh ideas and the opportunity to build from them, but we also create from scratch and provide alternate options when beneficial.

Because we want our clients to have choices and total awareness. That’s what gains respect, strengthens relationships. And with ~60% of our business from repeat clients and referrals, it’s clearly working.
