1All of our construction projects are based on the premise that, as your general contractor Holden Building Company will use our expertise to ensure a quality product that is completed on time and within budget. After a project is designed, we will produce a cost estimate that is very detailed and accurate. We then offer options for the contract agreement, such as a lump sum contract or a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) contract. There are other contract types, but we find these are the most popular for larger construction projects. The two are similar; however the GMP contract offers the owner a maximum price by a cost-plus a fee, and with an incentive for the Holden Building Company to find savings that benefit the owner. The savings are then split, 60%-40% or 50%-50%. Regardless of the contract type, the owner has a designed project built by the experts at Holden Building Company.
2Design-build is an integrated delivery process where Holden Building Company is the single source, with absolute accountability for both design and construction. We have found that Design–Build saves time and money for the owner, while providing the opportunity of options during all aspects of the project. Design–Build relies on a single point of responsibility and is used to minimize risks for the project owner and to reduce time by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of the project. Working as one team, under the direction of an experienced project manager, Holden Building Company Design-Build approach results in high-quality, distinctive projects designed and built to meet your needs.
