About Design – Build.

This construction project delivery method is the fastest-growing, most popular in the United States – for good reason. Design-build projects are completed 102% faster than traditional design-bid-build projects (DBIA). Aligned with industry best practices, Bruckelmyer Brothers’ Design-Build process gives our valued clients the convenience of one contract, a single point of delivery and a collaborative approach from design to execution. 



The Owner manages only one contract with a single point of responsibility. The designer and contractor work together from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the Owner’s schedule and budget.



 The traditional method or hard bid is a project delivery method in which the agency or owner contracts with separate entities for the design and construction of a project.


Contruction Manager At Risk

A delivery method entails a commitment by the Construction Manager (CM) to deliver the project within a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP).

{“We have lived in our new Bruckelmyer house now for two months. It is the completion of our dream to return to the land and it is an understatement to say that we are enjoying it. Wherever we look, we are reminded of the months of planning and craftsmanship that put it all together. We knew that we would be satisfied with the house you built for us, but we were not fully prepared for the unique experience we were undertaking with the Bruckelmyer team. You really do operate as a well-oiled machine composed of craftsmen who take pride in what they produce. Everyone you put us in contact with was talented and professional. They each made us feel that this house was the most important project they had ever tackled and they wanted it to be perfect for us. When there were problems, you handled them behind the scenes because we were never bothered by them. You made the process appear relaxed and easy. We loved the whole parade experience perhaps because it was so much fun to share this beautiful product with so many people. Your wonderful reputation certainly was evident with the crowd that showed up to see your latest product. We still encounter people who tell us they were here and admire this or that feature of the house. Folks occasionally tell horrible stories about their building process. We could not have had a more opposite experience. We felt sad that the whole contact had to end because knowing all of you and the integrity with which you live your lives has certainly enriched ours. As you know, Dick had to be dragged aboard in the beginning. We had never forked over that much of his money to anyone before in his life. However, we quickly became a willing player when he realized the quality of what he was getting. We look forward to growing old in this cozy, wonderful home that you created for us. Thank you for demonstrating what home building and trust are really about in your world.”
{“Some sixteen months ago when we first started thinking about building our third new home, we were a bit nervous about tackling a 6,000 square foot project. We had experienced less than favorable results with the two different contractors we had used in 1977 and 1990. We asked many couples who they would recommend, and the Bruckelmyer name came up several times. Realtors, lenders, and homeowners all urged us to meet with you. After our first meeting, Cheryl was convinced she wanted to hire your firm. Being the skeptical person I am, I felt I needed to get proposals. After obtaining proposals from other contractors, we asked to visit with former clients of each builder to get their feedback. Every Bruckelmyer homeowner sang your praises. This was very comforting and made us confident that we would be pleased with choosing your firm. Two of the three Bruckelmyer homeowners stated emphatically that we really didn’t need to get bids. We would be better off just hiring Bruckelmyer Brothers to do the work and not worry about price. (As it turned out your firm offered the best value of any of the firms we sought bids from.) Now that you have completed our new home, I just can’t tell you how thrilled we are with the superb job you did for us. The words that come to mind when describing your firm and your subcontractors are: talented, knowledgeable, honest, hard-working, reliable, and humble. The first thing that surprised me was that your crews showed up every day, all day, on time. The job site was far cleaner than any builder we’ve used in the past and your workers were pleasant, polite, and accommodating. The quality of work, from the masons, framers, electricians, plumbers, sheet rockers, painters, and finishing carpenters was uniformly great. No one ever cut corners, no one ever complained about the many change orders we requested, and everyone on the job-site was a pleasure to work with. As you know I decided along the way to hire out a very small portion of the work to certain sub-contractors. For each portion I decided to tackle on my own, I ended up with less than stellar results. In every case, I should have used the folks you recommended. Every sub-contractor that you used performed with the same high quality that we hoped for. I learned a valuable lesson, and that was to let the general contractor be responsible for the entire project. I must also mention that having your firm make all of our cabinetry was one of the smartest moves we made. The craftsmanship was awesome. Cheryl and I would be most pleased to show any prospective client our beautiful new home. Please call us at any time for a showing. We both want to thank you again for the terrific job you did for us. Should we ever decide to build again, we’ll make only one call, and that’s to Bruckelmyer Brothers!!”
