Firmo Construction offers an array of services
with the flexibility to accommodate our clients' diverse needs, no matter the project size or complexity.
Firmo Construction is pleased to offer our Design-Build service and save owners both time and money. We understand the importance of working closely with architects and design consultants at the earliest phases of your project to help prevent and resolve possible conflicts prior to actual construction.
Through our strategic partnerships we will prepare detailed architectural and engineered drawings. We will then manage the construction phase of the process, ensuring your project remains on schedule and within budget. Furthermore, Design-Build gives owners the luxury of single-source accountability, resulting in the most efficient and highest quality design and construction.
The traditional general contracting process (design-bid-build) remains a very popular delivery method, where owners separately hire and manage a design team to produce all of the drawings and specifications. These contract documents are then distributed to the general contractor to bid and build. Through years of experience we've procured excellent relationships with the most skilled subcontractors, designers and suppliers, allowing Firmo to secure competitive pricing for your project.
As experienced developers we are well equipped to support your project with development services related to governmental approvals, financing, portfolio analysis, environmental reviews, public relations, land acquisition, specialized lease structures and project ownership. We possess a deep knowledge of the regulatory landscape plus the ability to work well with local neighborhood organizations and communities.
Pre-construction is an opportunity to work through potential problems, analyze budget decisions, and choose the best subcontractors to help execute work. Our preconstruction services include:

- Site Studies and Evaluations
- Value Engineering
- Constructability Analysis
We build projects in a collaborative team environment, using innovative techniques to improve productivity, reduce costs and give clients the best project possible. Once the scope of work is established and local subcontractors vetted, our experienced project managers oversee all aspects of construction. Our team will ensure all design parameters are met and all subcontractors are performing their highest quality work on schedule and within budget. Our services during construction include:
- Construction Management
