PROJECT DELIVERY

Graham Construction provides construction services for many types of construction projects, specializing in the Healthcare, Long-Term Care, Private Education and Commercial markets. Our strengths are in partnering together with the owner and architect in a collaborative design and construction process that is designed to produce the most cost effective, creative solutions for our customers. Graham offers Pre-Construction and Construction services using several types of delivery methods depending on the customers needs. Most of our projects for private customers use the Construction Management at Risk, General Contractor, or Design/Build form of delivery, while we also serve as Agency Construction Managers for many public entities.

Construction Management at Risk:
Construction Management at Risk is a collaborative process where Graham Construction is involved in the early stages of design. We provide our expertise to the owner and their team to evaluate the cost and feasibility of the project design.

Agency Construction Management:
Agency Construction Management is typically used by our public customers where Graham Construction acts as their agent and owner’s representative to manage the construction project. We provide the same types of services as a construction manager at risk; however due to competitive bidding laws, the construction contracts are between the owner and the prime contractors. Graham administers and manages all of the contracts for the owner.

General Contractor:
Graham Construction has always had a builder’s mentality and acts as a general contractor on many projects. We have the expertise, manpower, and equipment to self-perform several aspects of the construction project including concrete work, rough carpentry, finish carpentry, millwork, doors/hardware, drywall and specialties.

Design/Build:
Design/Build delivery method is used when the owner desires a turnkey approach to design and construction. In this method, Graham Construction will be responsible for the design of the project as well as construction and will be a single source contact for the customer.

Graham takes an extremely proactive approach to managing the project during the construction process and has an exceptional track record of completing projects on time and within budget. Construction services provided include the following:
 

  • Project management and field supervision
  • Project scheduling and coordination
  • Project safety plan
  • Quality control
  • Communication and submittal management
