The company’s 77 year history is your assurance that a single point of contact can be a good faith partner through the complexities of the design and construction process. A Design-Build approach focuses the architect’s efforts on solutions that are cost effective and allows value engineering to start from day one. Knowing which architects can provide innovative, timely and competitive professional services is critical. To develop a preliminary design, the owner’s needs must be systematically written down. Filling out a Commercial/Industrial Program Outline is the first step in that process.


Porter Bros., Inc. excels in the application of Construction Management to control the duration, cost, and quality of a construction project. Our team understands the role of being the Owner’s advocate through the planning, design, and construction process while maintaining a team approach with all involved. Our proactive method helps us minimize delays in project completion, cost overruns, and quality defects of a project from inception to completion.


In the current climate of tightening budgets, quality control standards, and ever-increasing regulations, Value Engineering (VE) is a service that helps owners maximize their project’s value. For construction projects, VE utilizes a multi-disciplined team that is independent of the original design group. Early application of VE methodology uses this team in a concentrated effort to identify the basic required functions of the facility, to seek feasible alternatives, and to develop selected alternatives and prove their feasibility. We present these selected alternatives to the client in a way that will maximize successful implementation of the alternatives, and optimize functionality, cost, and value of the facility.


Porter Bros., Inc. preconstruction services include, but are not limited to: feasibility studies, cost estimates, constructibility analysis, product and material recommendations, scheduling impacts, value engineering, etc. We collaborate with many skilled design professionals, architects, engineers, municipality city planners, and subcontractors to reach the owner’s objectives. We provide input from the phases of programming, schematic design, design development, and construction document preparation.


Porter Bros., Inc., is very adept in the design assist delivery method which has many benefits for project owners. As a single point of contact and responsibility we offer the capability to overlap the design and construction phases. With the reduced scheduling capabilities and comprehensive understanding of the make up of a project, the end result is a product that is created with greater quality and cost effectiveness.
