We offer a range of services to meet your needs
Our Design-Build service offers our clients a full turnkey service where we take care of everything during the project, from concept to completion.
Design-Build is quickly becoming the fastest-growing segment in the construction industry, simplifying the delivery model to successfully transfer responsibility for project design, cost and execution to a single point of contact. This integrated approach can save time and money while encouraging collaboration and innovation as all parts of the process are aligned at the outset.
Unlike traditional tender methods, the design-build delivery method brings design and construction functions together under one team. We will act as a trusted advisor, guiding you through the entire construction process from beginning to end, while managing everything in between. Meanwhile, you’ll remain an active participant in both the design and construction process, guaranteeing that your goals and wishes are included and achieved within budget.
We are experienced in working with clients to understand and develop their goals and vision for a project into a set of working plans. Our experience of market rates and project costings allows us to consider the cost of what is being designed from the initial stages of design and then at key stages during the design process ensure the design is both cost-effective, value-for-money, and is aligned to the client’s budget expectations. We are happy to work on a cost-plus “open book” basis with our Client’s to give them full transparency of the project costs.
Once the client has approved the design, the team at DBM will handle the planning process and will obtain approvals and building permits on behalf of the client. During the construction phase, we will handle all aspects of the build including procurement of all materials required for the project, sub-contractor selection and tendering, and project management.
Our design build service offers clients greater flexibility to refine and hone the design as the project progresses; and as DBM Construction only completes a select number of jobs at any one time, one of the company owners will provide hands-on management of your project from start to finish to provide the personal touch and ensure your project meets expectations.
When choosing DBM Construction for your General Contracting services one of our owners will work with you and your design team through every step of the process to turn your vision into reality.
Our general contracting services help ensure that your project moves forward as smoothly as possible, from pre-construction to finish. We’ll guide you through the entire process, offering scheduling, quality control, procurement, subcontractor selection and supervision. We will also handle the many unique challenges that arise along the way.
Thanks to our extensive industry knowledge and strong relationships with subcontractors and vendors, we can provide cost-competitive value. Our clients appreciate how we add extra value to their projects as their general contractor, even before construction. This is because we can act as a second set of eyes on their project’s design which, at times, allows us to make cost-saving suggestions that don’t diminish the design integrity of your architect’s vision.
Our focus is committed to meeting your objectives through personal, high-quality service and integrity, without sacrificing quality and safety. We aim to provide a bespoke service tailored to your specific project needs.
PRE-CONSTRUCTION COST PLANNING & ESTIMATING
DBM Construction offers private clients, architects and developers cost planning advice and project feasibility appraisals which include everything from simple budgets, to detailed cost plans. We use our expertise and knowledge to review drawings and specifications at design stage prior to tender to provide detailed building costs based on cost data from our previous projects and current market rates in the Cayman Islands.
We can help ensure that realistic expectations are set, and budgets don’t stretch beyond limits. Our cost planning know-how gives our clients the opportunity to amend and adjust requirements, layouts, material, and finish specifications at the pre-construction stage; aligning the projected construction costs and design to provide reassurance that the project can be delivered to their budget.
Budget estimating and cost planning services can benefit the client in several ways. Our clear budgets provide:
The most economical layout, methods of construction, quality of work, size and materials.
