A pre-construction service plan provides a road map for reaching your specific building goals and objectives.
You have enough to worry about running your day-to-day operations. Design-Build Construction offers a single-point of responsibility for your entire project making the process simple, easy to understand and stress free. Unlike traditional “design-bid-select-build” contracts the Design-Build delivery method takes advantage of integrating the design, construction, quality, cost, and schedule together under one contract. Planners, architects, engineers, and contractors work together as a team to maximize the design and functionality of your project while maintaining budget and schedule concerns. Advantages include enhanced “value-engineering” and pre-construction reviews, early knowledge of guaranteed costs, accelerated delivery, increased quality control, lower design and engineering fees, reduced owner risk and administrative responsibilities. Design-Build delivers savings that traditional methods just can’t beat.
W. K. Thomas & Associates offers general contracting services to accommodate any phase of your project. From pre-construction services through the designing, planning, construction, interior finishing, roofing, and even the landscaping of your project, we can deliver the general contracting services you need on-time and on-budget.

When large projects require multi-phase or complex scheduling with specialty subcontractors, W. K. Thomas & Associates offers one-source management to coordinate every aspect and detail of your project for you. In a Construction Management Agreement we act as your agent and administer the work on your behalf. This agreement allows you to contract directly with the subcontractors which has the potential to save you money but exposes you to risk. Construction Management Agreements can also be written with lowered risk, depending on your desired scope of service. In these agreements, called At-Risk Agreements, the construction manager contracts directly with all construction contractors and assumes the risk for delivering the project. We assist you in the development of an agreement that focuses on achieving your goals and objectives. In fact, our management fee is often recuperated in the amount of time and money we can save you over the course of your project.
