Driven to Deliver: Design-Build That Makes the Difference

More about this project
Our vertically-integrated, in-house team has years of experience and a large portfolio of projects under our belt. From project to project, we've proven the benefits of our unique design-build model.

We have a multidisciplinary in-house team that integrates all functions from the day your project initiates until the last detail is finished. This single-source approach pays dividends for you with faster schedules, early guaranteed pricing, less risk, reduced costs, less administrative burden and better buildings.

Design-build has made the difference on countless projects. Check out what clients have said about working with us.

“I don't think there's any other way than design-build to get it done right. We were in the same room talking about the project. We went back and forth on the layout. I laid out stuff, and they responded with suggestions I had never thought of. This back and forth that was very beneficial to us. The company I work for has factories all over the country; we're one of their smaller divisions. This is by far the nicest factory. It's a very nice place!"

​"The value in the design-build approach stems from Opus' ability to work as a cohesive team. Even in our early meetings, it was not just the project managers present, but the architect as well. By having all parties at the table, there was never a question about our goals or the outcomes of our meetings."

"Opus' design-build process was seamless. It allowed us to continue to modify the design throughout the process and has resulted in a building that our organization and the city can be proud of."

"We were able to move fast because of Opus' design-build approach. The design of the project was occurring at the same time as our board discussions. In the end, we broke ground just three weeks after the board approved the project."

"I've been managing projects at Cook County for ten years and this was one of the best projects that I've worked on because Opus' design-build approach allowed the County to save time and money. Opus managed the project as if it was their money."

“When we were bidding it out to both architects and construction companies, the math wasn't working. The Opus design-build program actually made the math work where it wouldn't have otherwise. And so we couldn't have done it without them."​​
