From the early phases of a project to the very end, we’ve built our reputation on attending to the needs of our clients. Whether it’s traditional general contracting or construction management services, we keep the client’s goals in mind as well deliver quality construction under the strictest guidelines for safety.
“Edifice has proven time and time again that they are a valuable partner and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve a successful outcome. From concept to reality, the Edifice estimators, project managers, and field staff were ready for the challenge and performed admirably.”
Matthew Lucarell, Director of Project Management
Pre-construction is more than making the most out of your budget, it is vital to the overall success of every construction project. Early involvement by professionals that understand every step in the construction process is key.
Our team understands how a thorough evaluation of the project scope can provide the foresight to resolve constructability issues. They understand how to manage costs while maintaining the vision of your project, and they understand that clear communication with the entire project team helps ensure that the client’s expectations are met.

Pre-construction planning leads to a faster, more cost-effective build.
Selected solely on our qualifications in the early design phases of a project, this delivery process highlights our ability to work collaboratively in a team environment. Alongside our customers and design team, we encourage complete transparency. We provide clear and detailed estimates, constructability assistance and total plan and specification coordination. This enables us to deliver projects that achieve maximum value for the dollar without compromising the design.
When a customer is looking for Single Point of Contact Responsibility, Edifice has the experience necessary to organize and deliver every component of the building process.
Resourceful and efficient communication and practices with our owners are the hallmark of how we deliver a design-build project. Edifice has a proven ability to work with individual needs, allowing clients as much or as little involvement throughout the project’s development and implementation as they choose.
We’ve built our reputation by effectively managing the design, budget, schedule and construction of countless projects. By utilizing innovative ideas and approaches, we deliver projects in a timely fashion and within budget.

Although we pride ourselves on effectively delivering projects through the Design Build and Construction Management at Risk delivery methods, Edifice remains actively involved in the Design-Bid-Build delivery of projects.
Though this process selects a contractor solely on being the lowest cost competitive bidder – our practice in this method allows us to stay close to the market. Providing construction services via cost competition constantly exposes us to the realities of the evolving market, enhancing our ability to pinpoint accurate estimates with true market pricing.
Our years of cultivating excellent working relationships with the subcontractor market are paramount to our ability to deliver the best cost for any project.
Don’t know where to start? Many times clients come to us with a goal in mind. That goal is a vision of a facility that will meet their needs in a budget they can afford.
We offer extremely accurate cost estimates utilizing years of historical costs and current market knowledge. Whether it is a need for cost analysis, site assessments, or just help finding funding, we assist our clients through each step. A sound start saves our clients money and time while making their process a pleasant experience.
Whether it is on the job site or in the office, we utilize innovative technology every step of the way to effectively gain and share project information using a variety of software platforms that are easily accessible by all project stakeholders including the following:
Autodesk Suite software (Revit, Navisworks, AutoCAD, BIM360) SketchUp
View Point Team
Electronic Meeting Platforms (MS Teams, Zoom, etc.)
360 Laser Scanning
Drones & Onsite Cameras
We have developed and implemented a quality control program that is built on the Corps of Engineers and United States Navy’s “Construction Quality Management (CQM)” plan. This very systematic approach to quality is derived from following a set of repeated processes for each component of the project throughout the life of the construction project. Starting with the end goal in mind, each definable feature of work is identified and pre-determined as to the intended quality outcome. We work throughout the pre-construction phases of a project till the very end of construction to assure the intended results are met.
