Design Build Contracting

Pride Enterprises, Inc. (PEI) provides a design-build approach which presents a single source of responsibility for both design and construction services. We save time on design-build projects because construction can begin before the entire design is completed which allows for fast track project execution to accommodate accelerated schedules.

PEI is experienced in working with architects and engineers as a team, proceeding concurrently on the design and construction phases of a project and thereby expediting delivery. Additionally, because PEI and the contractor work in tandem, the contractor's changes can be incorporated into the design phase, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming changes during construction.

PEI has performed several Design-Build projects; a SCIF renovation project in Delaware for the Delaware Air National Guard and NMCRC Building and Site Modification project in Connecticut. Please see our past performance for more information regarding these projects.
