The Process

Project Approach

Our project approach is summarized through three broad phases where we design and price, construct and follow-up during post construction.

Phase one: Design and Pricing
  • Define client objectives & priorities
  • Brainstorm design ideas & architectural details
  • Review design & price options
  • Constructibility reviews balancing cost, aesthetics & function
  • Final price & schedule
Phase two: Construction
  • Daily oversight
  • Self-perform steel building erection with Patco’s crew
  • Manage subcontractors
  • Quality control checks
  • Weekly updates
Phase three: Post Construction
  • Identify & complete all punch list items
  • Perform periodic walkthroughs
  • We stay in touch

Benefits of Patco’s Design-Build Process

Our success in completing projects within budget and on time is based upon both our experience and the utilization of the Patco Design-Build Process.

The Design-Build process creates the framework around our Project Approach. Patco’s version of the Design-Build concept is different, because we perform much of the design in-house and we have our own erection and enclosure crews. These differences help us control cost, schedule and quality.
