Design-build is a project delivery method in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the Owner to provide design and construction services.
Streamlining the project delivery transforms the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance. In our experience this delivery method results in a faster, more cost effective project flow with fewer change orders often related to a more streamlined communication protocol between the Owner and Constructor.
At ReArch, we have successfully completed most of our development projects using the design-build delivery method. We have also implemented succesful design-build projects for our clients and often utilize the design-build approach for delivery of mechanical and electrical services within a Construction Management contract. This once again shows the benefit that getting our team involved as early as possible in a project will ensure the maximum value.
ReArch was a key partner in the beginning phase of the project before we ever had a budget put together and built the estimate with the Architect. We made a wise choice in selecting ReArch and we are planning to use them on other City projects.
ReArch has always been out in front of issues. If there is a problem and I call, they already have the options and answers for me.
ReArch does a great job coordinating their subcontractors, they have a positive relationship with subcontractors which is definitely a big benefit to the owner.
ReArch differentiated themselves by the phasing plans they brought to the table before meeting us. The phasing plan made it clear they had done their homework and there was a lot of thought, and the plan made a lot of intuitive sense to us as educators.
During construction it feels like ReArch is very much at the service of the owner. They are super responsive with outstanding communication throughout the project.
ReArch is very proactive in reviewing envelope details, always looking ahead to review and resolve those details weeks and months ahead of construction.
As a prime subcontractor that has worked on many projects with ReArch, we find their commitment to safety to be far above their peers. Whether it is new construction or renovation; and especially within historic and occupied facilities, they understand what it means to work safe, stay safe, and think safe. Without doubt, this goal is obtained on all their work. ReArch demonstrates that safety is both a responsibility and life-style; an obligation for every person on every project.
The Wentworth Housing projects blower door test was tied for first out of all the buildings we have tested in New England for air tightness, with an air infiltration rate of 0.0375 CFM50/sf.
ReArch Company’s skills at managing complex sites in densely populated areas and their ability to communicate effectively and respond nimbly and with flexibility to their client’s needs makes them an incredible asset on any project.
Without reservation I am pleased to say that hiring ReArch Company was the best and most important decision we made on this project and we look forward to working with them again on our next facility.
The team at ReArch is professional and they go above and beyond to make clients happy. I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality and excellence. One of the best companies I’ve worked with.
ReArch Company has proven themselves to be a valuable asset on the preconstruction and construction phases of our $10M+ state office complex. Their value management exercises generated real value and cost savings to the City of St. Albans throughout preconstruction and construction. The project has been wonderfully managed, and they have been a great partner to the City of St. Albans on this project.
Your team took ownership of the project and worked tirelessly to ensure that the project was delivered on time and on budget to allow us to successfully transfer operations to this location without any service interruptions to our clients.
ReArch’s project schedules are detailed, accurate and consistently updated throughout both design and construction processes. Estimating exercises are equally detailed and proactively inform preconstruction design decisions resulting in met expectations and proven accuracy come final bids. Our teams experience working with ReArch was smooth and reliable. I look forward to working with them again and I highly recommend them for any construction project.
Hardy acknowledges ReArch’s level of effort that they put into their shop drawing/submittal review. It is refreshing to see all the comments on the submittals ahead of our review, which is a testament to their due-diligence. We design over 100 projects a year and I can confidently say that there are very few other Contractor’s that put in this same effort.
ReArch’s construction site is clean, organized and safe. They have made a number of proactive decisions for the betterment of the State’s project that we do not see other construction managers make. Job meetings are well organized and a pleasure to attend, they communicate well with all members of the team. Working with ReArch has been a true blessing.
ReArch was the construction manager for BVHC’s renovation project. Without their guidance and expertise, we wouldn’t have the beautiful building we have today!
I am not sure how our project could have gone better. I expect you know how rare it is to be able to make that statement.
The St. Albans State Office Building and City Parking Garage project has been an unqualified success, and a portion of that success is attributable to the dedication and hard work of the employees of ReArch Company.
ReArch can always be counted on. They are a pleasure to do business with. Quick responses to inquiries and really one of my favorite GC’s to work with.”
