Since our founding in 1946.
Design-Build construction has been engrained in the McKay-Cocker philosophy, since our founding in 1946. Some of our greatest partnerships with clients, architects and subcontractors have been built on this method of construction. It is the closest we can get to a true partnership. As a single source partner we are able to work directly with the key stakeholders and more often than not, the end users that will use the facility once it is completed - minimizing the risk of misunderstanding your needs.
Our approach to developing Design-Build projects has been adjusted over the years to deliver maximum client value, while minimizing their risk. Based on your specifications we find the optimal solution for delivering lasting, long term facilities that end users are excited to use. All of our design-build projects are managed through our dedicated and growing Design-Build Division. We are capable of delivering projects in excess of $50M, with management of drawing production from our office; partnering with world class third party architects and consultants. Tightly managing constructability and evaluating lifecycle costs that best suit the client's needs; management spans from project inception to substantial completion and beyond.
Design-Build, as a project delivery method, is larger now than ever. If the current rate of growth in the design-build method continues it could become the most used method of procurement in non-residential projects over the next five years. This is driven by the world's economies, companies and governments need to keep pace with global development. Projects need to be developed on a fast-track basis, in order to for our clients to be able to provide new services and products to their customers and governments to their constituents, quickly and efficiently. McKay-Cocker's long term experience in this high paced, date certain environment uniquely places us in a position to provide true value to our clients, giving them the confidence to trust in partnering with us to design and build their stores, factories, community centres and offices.
