Design Assist

Rimrock understands the importance of a quality Design-Assist team. More than 90% of our projects use the Design-Assist method because this process creates greater satisfaction and value for our clients. The Design-Assist team includes our client, a chosen architect, engineering staff, subcontractor consultants, and our construction team. This team is organized at the beginning of a project to ensure the quality our clients expect is achieved.


   

Pre-Construction

Once the design development is close to completion, we will gather bids in every category/trade of construction. Then the bids will be presented to you (the owner) the designer, and architect for review and approval. Included in the bids will be cost savings and value engineering options that may save you money. Rimrock will assist in the funding by preparing construction cost breakdowns for the lending institution. There is no additional fee for these services. We include these services in our construction fee.

   

Construction Management

Rimrock understands the importance of building a quality project while maintaining budgets and controlling construction costs. Services provided during the construction phase are scheduled management, quality control, budget and estimating and material and subcontractor procurement. But beyond the basic quantitative aspects required for any project, we commit to understanding the needs of our clients. We build facilities that directly support the mission of our clients.

   

Integrity & Open Book Accounting

Rimrock clients are shown all bids and invoices pertaining to their individual projects. We are upfront and open about all costs and relay those costs, in detail, to all clients. Our clients are able to verify that there are no hidden costs or additional mark-ups in our billing. It is our goal to build a trusting relationship with those we work with and this is one of the key contributors to that success. Additionally, we have a great relationship with our bonding agent and virtually have unlimited bonding capacity.

   

Value Engineering

By keeping the structural integrity and design elements in mind, Rimrock will look for alternative methods and products that are most affordable for any project. In most cases we start value engineering during the pre-construction and design stages of the project, carry this effort throughout the subcontractor buy-out, and continue during the construction stage. We will not stop looking for savings until the project is complete.
