Design/Build Done Right!

"We knew we wanted to partner with a commercial builder that had a great reputation and integrity. We found that partner in DCC. From the planning, architect design, and construction phase, DCC demonstrated time and time again that they listened."

Denver Construction Company has established a solid reputation as the go-to design/build commercial general contractor for one simple reason. We know how to do it, and do it right.

If you think bidding your building project is the way to control costs and get more for your money, think again. Experience has confirmed that while bidding focuses on lowest cost, it often ultimately results in higher costs as important aspects of a project are not fully clarified or understood, incurring unanticipated expenses, delays and frustration for the owner. 

The perception that design/build is more expensive is simply not accurate. Not only is it the most efficient and effective way to build your facility, design/build construction also assures higher levels of accountability, collaboration in scheduling, reduction of production timeline, responsibility in costing and materials, and a better ability to anticipate and plan multiple phases of a project for the best end result.
