As a pioneer and leader in Design-Build heavy civil construction projects, ARG is at the forefront of the growing national wave of delivering highways, bridges, Power plants, transit systems, dams, railroads, airports and tunnels using the Design-Build method. ARG Company has partnered on teams that have built more than billions in Design-Build projects in the last decade.
Design-Build - What Is It?
Design-Build is a process where an owner executes a single contract with one entity to provide design and construction services. That entity is a team of premiere construction contractors, often led by ARG, and one or more civil design firms. As a team, we partner with an owner to design and construct the project in the shortest possible time and at a reasonable price to provide a high-quality product that will serve users for the years and decades to come. Design-Build is a fast-track method where we start construction before design is completed. By working together, the team can be innovative in finding ways to quickly resolve issues that emerge. Design-Build also allows faster work completion at substantial cost savings compared to the traditional process of design-bid-build. Some of the nation's largest, most complex heavy civil projects have employed the Design-Build method.
Advantages of Design-Build:
