We specialize in design-build construction and negotiated GMP contracts, where we work with the owner, client, and tenant every step of the way. We have found our projects to be most successful when all parties are involved in the process from the very beginning. Being a part of a project from design through completion fosters better communication between the architect, client, and construction team.

We assist owners at the beginning of each project by working side by side with their brokers or developers to help find the right space, finalize their design with the architects and engineers, and work through the city planning and permitting phases. Our involvement in design helps you as a client by determining features that are more cost-effective, as well as which building materials will be a better investment.

Our team then works with the owner, client, or tenant during the construction schedule to ensure that their budget is kept, their schedule is on time, and their design dreams are met.

Once construction is complete, we continue our relationship with the owner by setting up the closeout information and assisting with maintenance or remodeling throughout the life of the building.

We want the owners to be involved in the design and development of the project to ensure the results meet the expectation of the owners envision, for that, GMP is a good choice. Owner participation ideally results in greater communication and understanding between the owner and RJ Ryan Construction.
