8 Frequently Asked Questions for Your Next Construction Project 

When we meet new prospective clients for the first time, we’ve found they often have some of the same questions. To help provide you with more information as you consider your options, we’ve listed 8 of the most frequently asked questions, and their answers, here. 

Why Choose Rich and Gardner?

Since 1988, Rich and Gardner Construction Company has applied our dedication, expertise, and passion to providing a quality product at a fair price on every project. We are uncompromising in our commitment to respond to the needs and concerns of our customers on every project from design to the final punch list.

What Services Does Rich and Gardner Offer?

We are a full-service general contractor with over 33 years of experience successfully completing construction projects for a diverse range of clients. Our expertise spans the entire lifecycle of construction, and furthermore, our experienced team of Construction Managers is on-hand to keep your project running smoothly, on time, and within budget. 

We also help you save time and money by offering design/build services. Partner with us to create a delivery schedule that manages every stage of your project.

Do Rich and Gardner Accept Commercial Projects of Any Size?

Yes! When potential clients learn about Rich and Gardner through one of our larger projects such as our recent completion of the GPO Credit Union’s new branch, they will sometimes assume that we are not interested in smaller projects — for example, an office or workspace renovation. However, no commercial project is too small (or, for that matter, too big) for us to help with. 

How Do Design-Build Services Make Rich and Gardner Unique?

Our Design-Build services offer a simplified approach to your building needs. Rather than hiring one company to design, and another for construction, Rich and Gardner is a single source of responsibility and accountability for all phases of your project, from estimation, assessments, and pre-construction to schematics, subcontracting, construction, and post-construction.

This method allows for greater organization, reduces the delivery schedule, gives you a greater voice of input, and minimizes your risk. 

The result? A quality project, faster, with more consistency and less risk, at the lowest possible price. 

Why is Construction Management Important?

Although some smaller scope projects may not require a Construction Manager (especially those in which a general contractor fills the project management role), the bottom line is that most complex or larger-scale projects would be practically impossible to execute successfully without effective Construction Management. 

A good Construction Manager brings cohesion between different aspects and methodologies of a project, coordinates a project’s schedule, cost, quality, safety, scope, and function, and maintains communication and trust with the client. 

At Rich and Gardner, our Construction Management goals are simple: meet our client’s needs. It sounds easy…and, although it can in fact be very complex, we like to think that our Construction Managers make it look easy, too.

How Much Will My Project Cost?

The short answer? It all depends. Our team applies the latest technology alongside their years of expertise in order to create accurate estimates that ensure our clients get the best value for their project dollars. Our estimating team understands the industry and considers current market trends and realistic project schedules. They also collaborate with subcontractors to identify value engineers for cost-saving options. 

Rich and Gardner’s extensive database of over 10,000 subcontractors and suppliers create competitive pricing for every project. Furthermore, we coordinate and manage all subcontractors from start to finish and self-perform critical portions of work to provide even greater value. We are committed to making every client satisfied and keeping each project within budget.
