Construction Solutions that Accompany our Design and Engineering Services
Austin’s construction solutions include general contracting and construction services including a world-class preconstruction department and construction experts with vast experience in all of the markets we serve.
Preconstruction and Construction Phase Management
Our team can assist in breaking down projects into smaller bid packages, allowing local contractors to perform the work. With multiple local contractors bidding on each package, you’ll receive competitive bids and demonstrate a commitment to the community by selecting local companies.
As a schedule-driven company, Austin seeks efficiencies in the preconstruction and construction phases of every project. We understand that efficiencies save time and money. In fast-track and flash-track construction projects, efficiencies are essential to success.
