A Better Way

Opus DB3™: Faster Completion, Reduced Cost, Best Total Value

"There has to be a better way," Opus founder, Gerry Rauenhorst, declared shortly after starting his business over 60 years ago. Inspired by a client-centric vision, he pioneered design-build project delivery. Today we refer to our unique project approach as Opus DB3, and we continue building on our culture of innovation to find new and better ways to achieve our clients' goals.

Opus DB3 takes design-build to the next level. Whether we work directly with an owner or developer as the client, or we engage internal or external design resources, Opus DB3 effectively integrates all stakeholders—client, architect, and builder—working as a single, multi-disciplinary team with meaningful collaboration that elevates your project delivery experience and delivers results.

As we grow, we continually innovate this holistic approach with a relentless drive toward one goal—to deliver your vision. The result is maximum value for you, through guaranteed cost, improved speed and risk mitigation as we act as your single point of accountability. And we do so without shortcutting or compromising the full design process For decades our experts have been delivering this value through proven results for our clients. Learn how below.
