The bottom line is that “Integrity” is not just about our business. It’s about our respect for yours.
Western Constructor’s reputation for success and efficiency in general contracting extends back to our origination in 1974. Our General Contracting services span your entire project, from the initial planning stages until the punch list is closed out. Throughout construction, your project is managed with 100% dedication to timely delivery, responsive service, strict cost control and meticulous attention to detail.
Western Constructors has built a strong reputation throughout the Western Slope for managing construction processes and recruiting the most qualified subcontractors for our construction projects. We partner with Owners, trade contractors and architects to identify project goals and designs. We are then able to use this information to provide staging and sequencing plans, as well as detailed project schedules. During this time, we consistently identify sensitive issues that may impact the budget and project timeline.
At Western Constructors, We understand that no two construction projects are the same. Our general contracting team uses past experiences and strong relationships in order to create the most qualified construction professionals and plans for each project.
Western Constructors can make any construction project run more smoothly and efficiently. We offer comprehensive construction management services, providing expert consultation to the designer and /or the Owner. In this role, we take on as much of the project coordination as the Owner desires. This can include the budgeting, bidding process, schedule optimization, quality control and close-out. Using tested policies and procedures, Western Constructors proactively manages the scheduling and purchasing process so the project will be built with a plan.
The Construction Management process allows the Owner to select a Construction Manager (CM) to share his construction knowledge during initial stages of design. The Construction Manager (CM) acts as a third leg to assist the Owner and designer during the conceptual design phase with value-added information.
During construction, the Construction Manager (CM) supervises the trade contractors and manages the budget, the schedule, scope of work changes and request for payment, and assures the adherence to the contract documents. Because the Construction Manager (CM) works as a professional advisor, he remains an ally and agent of the Owner and Designer, giving unbiased information and directing the trade contractors throughout the design and construction of the project. Construction Management partners can save time, bypasses general contractor markups and fees, and passes direct bid savings onto the Owner.
Construction Management has become increasingly popular in recent years – particularly on complex projects requiring comprehensive management oversight.
The design/build methodology is a proven way to keep construction projects leaner, faster and more efficient. Western Constructors is well-versed in this approach. Having the design and construction responsibility within a single source control, minimizes communication issues, controls the budget and reduces Change Orders. We are a true collaborator, integrating our expertise with the rest of the project team. This seamless coordination makes projects run more smoothly, with minimal disruptions and downtime.
With this approach, the General Contractor holds the Architect’s contract. The result is a single point of contact for the Owner since the General Contractor is responsible for both design and construction.
Western Constructors is a strong advocate of this approach. Design/build partnering is a method of doing business through a team effort that helps providers of services and recipients of those services to work together to achieve mutual goals. As the practice of construction partnering has become widespread, it has demonstrated its effectiveness as a means of minimizing disputes. Not only does construction partnering preclude major disputes by obviating the need for alternative dispute resolutions, but it also is a proven provider of cost savings. Most importantly, construction partnering brings about an atmosphere of cooperation in which a collaborative effort enables projects to be completed within budget and on or ahead of schedule.
This atmosphere of cooperation is largely based on team building, which is the foundation of Western Constructors’ approach. Trust, open communication, and dedication to common goals are all significant components of this approach.
