DESIGN BUILD SOLUTIONS
The primary benefit to our client is the ease of having one party responsible for the overall development of the project. Under this type of Contract, the owner will typically negotiate a fixed price for the designing and the completion of the construction of the facility. The Design/Build team would then design the complete facility, usually based on a preliminary scope or design presented by the Owner. From the moment the contract is signed, the Design/Build team takes on total responsibility for the construction of the project, and for all coordination between design and construction.
Argus’s role as a design-build contractor is a multidimensional one. Initially, the client will work with Argus’s design-build team to identify project needs. As the project progresses, the project manager and estimators will join the team to ensure a smooth transition through all the phases of the construction process. In the conceptual design stage, much of the effort will focus on the overall scope of the project. Seamless value engineering and opportunities for substantial time saving are major traits of this kind of approach to construction. Argus Services Inc. always maintains complete transparency with our client.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
With construction projects becoming more complex over the years and with each aspect of a job being handled by separate specialists and regulated by different codes, construction management has emerged as a critical function for a successful project. We, at Argus, understand this complexity of managing commercial construction projects and their multifaceted processes.

From the initial conceptual meeting to the final walk through, we will be there, every step of the way, to ensure your project is a success. As a liaison between designers, architects, governmental agencies, contractors and suppliers, we make sure the building process is managed properly throughout its entirety.
From the conception of the design through to the final stages of development, Argus Services Inc will focus on the entire project, from cost estimating, managing the bidding process, the contract requirements, communicating with and managing design professionals and governmental agencies and ensuring quality standards.

GENERAL CONTRACTING SOLUTIONS
Each Construction project is unique and requires different preparation and management depending on the Contract. The traditional design-bid-build system, referred to as “General Contracting”, remains one of the most popular delivery methods for you, the Owner. In this specific Contract type, the Owner hires Design Professionals to design the entire project including construction drawings, specifications and contract packages.
Once all the design work is completed, the Owner, along with his/her Architect and/or Engineer, solicit bids from General Contractors to prepare bids for the work. The contractor selected to perform the construction is then responsible for constructing the facility in accordance with the design. Typically, the Design Professional maintains limited supervision of the work and responds to questions about the design on behalf of the Owner. This contracting system offers the advantage of being widely applicable, well understood, and with well-established and clearly defined roles for the parties involved. However, many construction Owners have experienced a variety of frustrations using this system, leading to the development of other methods and variations of the General Contracting contract method.
After an Owner evaluates the General Contracting delivery method on a Project, Argus steps in with a systematic yet direct approach. We first review and evaluate the plans and specifications prepared by the Owner’s Architectural and Engineering Team. In our evaluation we review the plans for constructability, schedule, means and methods to complete the Project. We also evaluate the Project status as it relates to Governmental Agency approval.
