The firm’s sister company, Raymond Engineering, has architects, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers on staff and building envelope experts readily available to design projects Raymond Construction builds. With streamlined collaboration, our Clients benefit from timely and precision coordination, and in-house efficiencies that ultimately equate to reduced design and construction costs while compressing schedules. Our fine-tuned internal systems separate us from our competition who mostly seek outside sources to design their projects, affording Raymond Construction a competitive edge, not just financially, but also in terms of the value we create. We like to think these resources and unique delivery process are aligned with the traditional sense of design-build construction stemming from Master-Builder Imhotep who in 2630 B.C. was commissioned by the Egyptian Pharaohs to design and build the first pyramids. The concept of the builder designing projects continued in America until the 1960’s until a clear division between design and construction had taken hold. It was not until 1978 did the American Institute of Architects allow its members to engage in Design-Build project delivery, a trend that continues to gain traction at a rate of 4% annually. We at Raymond Construction and Raymond Engineering are proud of our distinction as a “true design-builder” and look forward to demonstrating the benefits to those we serve.
