• Design & Build

    The “design-build” approach, as opposed to conventional bidding methods, involves Weaver Commercial Contractor from the beginning design phase through completion. Weaver accepts single-source accountability, keeping the owner informed through all the phases while protecting the customer’s investment. This approach benefits the customer in time, money and peace of mind.

  • General Contracting

    A general contractor is responsible for the means and methods to be used in the construction execution of the project in accordance with the contract documents. These contract documents usually include the contract agreement including budget, the general and special conditions and the plans and specification of the project that are prepared by a design professional. A general contractor usually is responsible for the supplying of all material, labor, equipment, and services necessary for the construction of the project.

  • Site Evaluation | Planning

    Reduce risk and have greater confidence in your spreadsheets, proformas, and feasibility studies. Recognize most deal breakers from the start - before spending thousands on Surveys, Design Engineers, Phase 1’s, Geotech and Environmental Reports. Develop conceptual site plans based in reality, not “rules of thumb” and best guesses. Eliminate profit destroying “surprises” from emerging after closing.

  • Preconstruction Services

    Careful planning is the bedrock upon which all successful projects are founded. WCC’s extensive preconstruction experience enables a “big picture” perspective and ensures plans are designed to attain our clients’ objectives. To guarantee results, we work with our clients, designers, and engineers during a project’s earliest stages to maximize constructability, evaluate building materials and systems, value engineer designs, integrate sustainable elements, and provide an accurate budget and schedule. We also seek input from our in-house experts in such disciplines as foundations, structural components, building envelope, mechanical and electrical systems, and purchasing. This valuable information allows you to better understand conditions, requirements, and costs before moving forward with final drawings and construction.

  • Budget Consultation

    With a comprehensive understanding of all the costs of a project, your organization can determine the true feasibility and affordability of the project. Adjustments can be made to the project’s scope to bring the budget in line with your organization’s means.

  • Construction Manager at Risk

    CM at-risk is a cost effective and time conscious alternative to the traditional design-bid-build process.

    Construction management at-risk is a process that allows the client of a project to choose the CM before the design stage is complete. The CM is chosen based on qualifications, and then the entire operation is centralized under a single contract. The architect and CM work together in order to cultivate and assay the design. Then, the CM gives the client a guaranteed maximum price, and coordinates all subcontract work. The A/E is hired separately from the CM at-risk and the traditional client – A/E relationship is maintained. The advantages to construction management at-risk over traditional methods of construction are:

    • Increases the speed of the project and can also strengthen coordination between the architect/engineer and the construction manager.

    • The client hires the construction manager based on qualifications, thus better ensuring a construction manager with a strong allegiance to the client, because their business relies on references and repeat work.

    • Construction managers, architects/engineers, and the client all collaborate. This creates enhanced synergies throughout the process.

    • Transparency is enhanced, because all costs and fees are in the open, which diminishes adversarial relationships between components working on the project, while at the same time eliminating bid shopping.
