By working as a team with owners, architects and engineers throughout project planning, design, and construction, Mid State maximizes value in each phase and eliminates budgetary surprises. Our success is measured by the real value our clients receive. We Build Trust in the highest levels of achievement and client satisfaction.
Please take a moment to review Mid State’s approach to General Contractor, Design/Build, Construction Management and Team Approach.
Every year Mid State Construction Company builds a wide variety of industrial, commercial and institutional structures. Mid State maintains a hands-on approach in the construction of these assignments by utilizing its capabilities to complete major components of the construction process. ‘This ability ensures that Mid State clients receive the highest possible standards of quality and value while schedule and budget constraints are closely maintained. Mid State maintains modern equipment, the latest construction technology and a dedicated team of professionals to meet every general contracting requirement.
Mid State’s construction teams of project managers, field supervisors and craftsmen are dedicated to providing their clients with complete satisfaction. At Mid State, “We Build Trust.”
Mid State Construction Company’s Design/Build program offers single-source accountability for both the design and construction process. We see the Design/Build approach as a method of providing the optimal conditions for “appropriate” building design and quality construction while achieving economy in all phases of the process. We have worked hard to maintain strong relationships with clients, architects, engineers, sub-contractors and vendors, based on trust, mutual respect and fair dealing. Our pre-construction services are managed with the same principles in mind.
Mid State practices Design/Build by retaining independent design professionals to perform the required aspects of the design process in close coordination with our Design/Build managers who understand and respect the contributions of all team members. Design professionals are selected based on their compatibility with the individual client’s needs and their ability to become a part of a total performance team with the common goal of creating innovative solutions for the client’s project. Our design partners, utilized to date, are considered among the most highly regarded architects and engineers available in the state.
We believe that greater responsibility serves as motivation for maintaining a higher quality of all services rendered and insures the proper selection and performance of building systems specifically suited to our clients needs. In the traditional design-bid-build project delivery method, the designer does not fully understand the relationship between the design and the Contractor’s cost. With Mid States depth of experience developed since 1958, design solutions can be explored, which are known to comply with the Owner’s cost parameters, in a much more timely fashion.
By achieving a guaranteed maximum price at a much earlier stage in the process, the Owner does not waste time, effort and financial resources on misguided concepts or unrealistic goals. In situations where timing is critical, the Mid State “fast track” method of construction can overlap the design and construction processes for maximum efficiency.
In the Design/Build process, quality is driven by single source responsibility for client satisfaction rather than excessive documentation and inspection. Cost savings are attained by exploring only efficient, innovative concepts before the production of drawings. Project duration can be substantially reduced by overlapping the design and construction process, avoiding extended bidding periods and eliminating redesign time. Early real cost guarantees eliminate the potential for an owner to extend funds for completed documents only to learn that the cost of the project as designed is prohibitive. Once the project scope and price are defined and accepted, change orders due to document incompleteness are eliminated. Correction of such issues is the responsibility of the design/builder, not the client.
In addition to Mid State Construction Company’s general contractor capabilities, we are also seasoned construction managers. You can count on Mid State to follow through in the field. The Mid State construction management teams work hard to ensure that people and materials come together seamlessly to drive your project to completion. From groundbreaking to ribbon-cutting, Mid State offers a comprehensive, “no-excuses” approach to every assignment they take on.
Mid State Construction Company takes the guesswork out of complex assignments with a systematic construction management process known as the Mid State Team Approach.
We work with our clients, not for them. It is an architect’s or owner’s right to understand the cost consequences of design alternatives, long before a project is physically under way. This information can make the difference between true management, and simply reacting to crises as they occur.
Below is a simplified step-by-step of the Team Approach from beginning to end.
- Design Consultation – Mid State team members work directly with the owner and architect, to determine appropriate methods, systems and materials. The decades of experience since 1958 as a company combined with a diverse group of knowledgeable construction professionals, assure this initial step is invaluable.
- Budgeting & Estimating – Our budgeting is reliable and accurate. Following initial conferences, we move to estimating, based on actual quantities, sequences and cost factors.
- Feedback – We provide ongoing cost feedback during design so that the architect and owner can evaluate the consequences of their decisions.
- Proposal & Scheduling – Finally our construction proposal includes our recommended approach to the construction process, including scheduling based on computerized critical-path procedures for a predictable outcome.
The Mid State Team Approach is a complex process, but it has one simple goal. We Build Trust by eliminating surprises.
