When planning a construction project, one of the most important decisions you’ll face is which delivery model to use. That choice influences every phase of the project and impacts the budget, the schedule, and the quality of the completed work. Our projects fall into one of three categories: General Contracting Services, Design-Build Services or Construction Management Services.
A&K takes a thoughtful, concerned approach to craftsmanship, cost control, layout and design and structure longevity for every project we complete. A&K’s project managers carefully plan and analyze every facet of your construction project from the origin of blueprints to handing over the keys to a finished project. Our goal is to completely satisfy our clients, making their building dreams a reality.

Design-build is a method of project delivery with the emphasis ultimately on project performance. For our clients, this has meant timely project completion at a lower cost. Fundamentally, design-build embraces architecture/engineering and construction services under a single contract, thereby integrating the roles of designer and constructor. Because there is a single point of responsibility, the ability to manage risk is improved and because A&K believes firmly in the partnering concept, we emphasize the importance of the owner, architect, contractor, and supplier functioning as a team. The consistency afforded by the approach is beneficial in completion of the project on schedule, within budget, and in accordance with plans and specifications to meet the specific needs of each client.
