Success from Beginning to End.

We've found our projects are most successful when we are involved from the very beginning of a build through completion of the project. Through our relationships with architects, we are able to be a part of the project from design through completion. During each of the five stages of design, our communication between the architect, client and the construction team is critical.

Stages of Design and Communication:

Phase 1 – Origination. During this stage, the client is exploring the idea of what kind of building they need.

Phase 2 – Focus. With the help of an architect, the project is defined in this phase. Further exploration regarding building needs and wants is completed.

Phase 3 – Design. In the design phase, drawings and written specifications are completed and agreed upon. It's during this stage that R. J. Ryan can be of extra help by determining features that are more cost-effective than others, as well as what building materials will hold-up to time and be a good investment for the client.

Phase 4 – Build. R.J. Ryan is the project management source and build expert during this stage. Managing materials, defining time-lines, inspecting craftsmanship, and adhering to building codes are just a few examples of the multi-faceted build phase. Our reputation as one of the top commercial contractors in the Twin Cities area did not happen by accident. Our buildings are delivered on-time, are high quality, and cost-efficient.

Phase 5 – Occupy. The hard work is complete. The client takes ownership of their new, quality facility. R.J. Ryan goes the extra mile to ensure our clients are satisfied with their building. Read some of our many testimonials here.
