Construction Delivery Methods
When choosing a project delivery method, it is important to consider the project’s specific needs, including scale, complexity, schedule and financing. Delivery approaches are flexible and DOD Construction LLC can accommodate and assist with variations on methods based on specific project needs. Contact us to learn more about the project delivery methods or to discuss the best way to deliver your project.
When it comes to construction management services, the DOD Construction LLC team’s approach is simple: we build not only buildings, but also relationships. We take the time to understand each project’s unique features and challenges and determine how to maximize economies for your needs. Our high percentage of repeat business validates the level of importance we place on building lasting relationships with our clients. Our people are empowered to “do the right thing” every day. Our experience in all construction phases, from project planning through project close-out and beyond, ensures the project is managed successfully.
By integrating the design and construction phase of a project, DOD Construction LLC is often able to economize time and cost. The design and construction team members collectively evaluate effective alternatives to maximize your construction value. Value engineering and constructability are implemented from the beginning of the project, and you have one point of responsibility. As the lead, DOD Construction LLC takes responsibility for quality, cost and schedule. By managing multiple, parallel objectives, including aesthetic and functional quality, as well as budget and schedule, we free the owner to focus on timely decision making, and scope and needs definition.
As your general contractor, like with any other delivery method, DOD Construction LLC will always “do the right thing.” We will handle all the construction services, including hiring and managing subcontractors to make sure we meet your project goals. Our ability to self-perform enables us to set the pace for construction, control project costs, and establish standards for quality and safety. Additionally, having a firsthand knowledge of the effort required to complete these trades allows us to more accurately schedule work, and enables our personnel to better monitor production and quality.
Construction can be unpredictable, but with the right team and thoughtful logistics, you can remove the guesswork and focus on your work. Through our early involvement on your project team, DOD Construction LLC employs a proactive approach combined with local market knowledge, helping you develop realistic project goals factoring in the scope, schedule and budget.
Quality estimates take shape in many different ways, with the key being the process, tools and people. In house ,we have the ability to estimate civil, structural, architectural, fire protection, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems. Our knowledge warehouse and team of experts allow us to coordinate systems and find any gaps in the design: as simple as the need for concrete equipment pads to cutting, trenching and replacing concrete floors for new utilities that may have not been realized in the design process. Our estimating team is always collaborative, open to new ideas and willing to dig a little deeper in the interest of the project. We use a multitude of technology and tools, including Timberline, OST and Revit, and are flexible enough to accommodate the communication and technology needs of our clients.

“To ensure efficient usage of the software, Phoenix Contact provides its custom SAP applications in the respective local languages of our users. In planning our SAP implementation for Poland, DOD Construction LLC provided valuable professional consulting regarding an efficient long-term translation strategy. With the help of the DOD Construction LLC experts we quickly gained an insight into this specialized subject matter and jointly we were able to formulate a process for the future.
DOD Construction LLC helped kick-start the translation effort by performing the initial translation into Polish in full service. By using appropriate optimized translation methodologies and by exploiting the full potential of the SAP tools, DOD Construction LLC completed the translation both in time and at minimal cost. In addition, in the area of customizing tables, DOD Construction LLC provided us with a special ABAP report to further facilitate the translation process.”
Cornelia Grawe, Informatics & Organization

We now know who to turn to in future for any questions related to SAP translation."
