our process

From the very beginning, we’re focused on providing a process that’s innovative, honest and accountable to you. We start with transparent bidding, consistent communication, reliable job-site oversight, and attention to detail. You can count on us to be focused on the bottom line as if it were our own.

Before Construction

During the Pre-Construction Phase, we work with both the design team and the project owner to troubleshoot any challenges and identify opportunities for cost-savings. Loyd Builders provides a number of services as part of the pre-construction process including:

  • Team Collaboration

  • Estimating & Cost Control

  • Constructability Review

  • Quality Control

  • Planning & Scheduling

  • Third Party Agency Coordination

During Construction

In the Construction Phase, we roll up our sleeves and work hands-on throughout the process to help keep the job safe, on time and on budget. Loyd Builders offers all the traditional services as well as value-added services during the construction process, including:

  • Contract & Payment Administration

  • Project Management

  • Progress Monitoring

  • Quality & Cost Control

  • Safety Programs

  • Change Order Management

  • Self-Perform Capability

After ConsTruction

For Loyd Builders, the process doesn’t end when the construction phase is over. We take pride in being a true partner, maintaining communication through the warranty period and beyond. We’ll be here when you need us. Loyd Builders also offers additional services post-construction to ensure the long-term success of your project, including:

  • Operation & Maintenance Manuals

  • Warranty Catalog

  • Commissioning

  • Lien Releases

  • Periodic Warranty Reviews


  “Loyd’s pre-construction services have allowed us to explore the design that best suits the client and stays within the budget. In fact, the new USD 290 elementary school had a few features that were tweaked at Loyd’s recommendation and thus came in significantly under budget.”    Amber Beverlin, Principal  DLR Group

Our Project Delivery Methods

GEneral Contractor

What is GC? General Contractor (GC) is the delivery method most familiar to Project Owners. Under this delivery method, we submit a comprehensive bid based on plans and specifications that have been prepared by the Owner’s Design Professional. Under this delivery method, the GC has minimal opportunity to provide input during the design phase. We construct the project as designed under the direction of you and your design team.

Why Loyd? Even though selection of a contractor is based primarily on price in the GC delivery method, we don't abandon our values and commitment to quality in pursuit of the bottom dollar. We strive for a team approach throughout the construction process that helps you achieve your goals.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGER AT RISK (CM@R)

What is CM@R? Construction Manager at Risk (CM@R), also known as Construction Management (CM), involves two contracts - one between the Owner & Design Professional and one between the Owner & CM. Under this delivery method, we provide construction input to the Owner and Design Professional during the design phase. We then serve as the General Contractor during the construction phase, working in collaboration with you and the design team.

Why Loyd? Our collaborative approach and industry relationships allow us to excel in the CM@R role. We have a proven track record working as a partner with Architects & Engineers to ensure the best plan at the best price. Our attention to detail and problem-solving skills allow us to shine in this role, quickly identifying and resolving challenges and helping control the bottom line. We also employ a full team of skilled craftsmen and maintain strong partnerships with the region's most respected subcontractors, giving us a talented team of building experts to drawn upon during every stage of the planning and construction phases.

DESIGN-BUILD

What is DB? Design-Build is intended to simplify the process for the project Owner. It involves one contract - between the Owner and the Design-Build firm. Under this delivery method, we serve as your single point of contact, first facilitating a design based on your vision, then guiding the project through the pre-construction and construction phases.

Why Loyd? We know how to take your idea (even if it's from a napkin sketch) from start to finish. Our organizational skills, approachability, network of trained professionals, and open communication allow us to stand out in the DB role. Working directly for you, our team can move seamlessly through the process on an accelerated schedule to achieve the results you expect.
