Our Solutions

AKM Building Systems, Inc. is a design build company. What does that mean? It means that we are your one source contact from the design of the project to its completion. This eliminates extra steps in the building process, saves on cost, saves time and the end result is a better product.

Traditional – Build Method

  • Owner contacts an Architect to design the project.
  • After approval of drawings from Owner – Architect presents drawings to contractors for bid pricing.
  • Contractors submit bid proposals, trying to have the lowest bid.
  • Bid proposals can be more than the owners budget.
  • This can cost owner more for the architect to redesign the project to eliminate cost to get closer to budget dollars.
  • You have multiple contact people to complete the project which causes the possibility for communication errors.

Design – Build Method

  • The customer knows how much will be invested upfront.
  • A contract price, within the customer's budget, is established early in the design process.
  • There are no change orders for the client after construction begins unless the original scope of work is changed or hidden conditions are discovered.
  • It is a partnership where we work together with the owner as a team to ensure we have common objectives and goals.
  • Chances for misunderstandings are reduced with one point of contact.
  • Time is saved by eliminating redesign and bidding, AKM Building Systems gets you into the facility sooner.
  • Quality is maximized because subcontractors are pre-qualified.
  • Completion dates are established within a reasonable time frame based on the size of the project.
