This is the heart and soul of Bingham Construction. We’ve been a licensed general contractor in the state of California since the founding of the company by Roy Bingham in 1942. To keep our overhead down, we do not self-perform any work. We subcontract all trades and obtain multiple bids per trade on each project. The savings from this approach are then passed on to our clients. In addition to managing our own subcontractors, we provide coordination of owner’s vendors during the duration of the project including providing schedule activities and milestones in the project schedule.
In situations where construction expertise is needed at the very genesis of a construction project, Bingham Construction can assume the role of construction manager. In this procurement method, we act as the owner’s primary consultant throughout the design, construction, and close-out phases of the projects. Developing RFP’s, preparing budgets and schedules, managing design teams, vendors, and general contractors, and assuring project compliance with authorities having jurisdiction are some of the services offered in this format.
Managing multiple concurrent and phased projects takes a well experienced team that understands the logistics of the program and the clients’ needs. Lease deals and available project funding are the two primary drivers of program management that are time sensitive and require exceptional planning, coordination, and execution. We are able to manage programs as a general contractor, construction manager, or both.
Bingham Construction can provide design services through the traditional route of hiring and managing an architect and consultants. By soliciting multiple bids and managing the design team as we would our subcontractors, we pass along savings to the client and more efficiently manage the design process preventing unchecked scope growth or missing details. However, some projects are not large enough in scale or need to be completed too quickly to warrant the traditional design-bid-build procurement. In this situation, we have the technology to develop space plans and details from existing as-built drawings or marketing plans. This scenario allows our clients to quickly get deals signed or work completed when time or budget does not allow for a permitted design.
As capital budgets and staffing capabilities continue to decline, it is crucial to have the necessary resources to complete capital improvement and facilities maintenance projects. By becoming an extension of our clients’ staff, we are able to develop accurate pricing and to complete construction projects that engineering and property management teams are unable to complete in-house. Completing property upgrades and maintenance is vital to a portfolio’s marketability and functionality.
