BE&K Building group has served as General Contractor on hundreds of successful projects since the company was founded nearly 50 years ago. Through this traditional project delivery approach, commonly referred to as Design-Bid-Build, the Architect-Engineer produces bid documents for the project under the direction of and in contract with the Owner. Once design documents are 100% complete, they are bid by the General Contractor and its subcontractors. No work can be performed until the entire project is bid and awarded. Under this delivery method, work is typically procured on a lump-sum basis. There are two distinct phases to this traditional approach with design and construction being clearly separated by the bid process.
