Streamlining your project for superior results.

Design‑Bid‑Build vs. DESIGNBUILD

DESIGNBUILD eliminates the middleman/split between the independent architect and the independent contractor. Our Architectural Designers and Construction Managers are on the same page because we are on the same team, work for the same company, and our plans are fully integrated. We are committed to delivering aesthetically pleasing, functional projects on time and within budget.


Better Communication

Streamlined communication prevents disputes over unclear documents, costs, designs, and methods of construction. Our Project Team is all in one building and meets frequently to exchange the flow of information, giving you the peace of mind to focus on your business.


Cost Savings

Single Source Responsibility™ means our construction team provides their experience and input on plan details before final designs are complete. This allows more time for our estimating team to ask questions and adjust prices, resulting in a cost control advantage to you.


Improved Risk Management

Performance aspects of cost, schedule and quality are more clearly defined and managed by MSI General’s Project Director who is the leader responsible to manage these risks. This reduces the potential for surprises, errors, and omissions.


Faster Project Completion

Since our design and construction teams overlap inhouse, communication wait times are diminished. To avoid hang-ups within the construction schedule, critical stages and early decisions on lead times are calculated by our team. Our goal is to deliver at a higher quality and a faster pace.


Superior Results

Experts in design and construction contribute to all aspects of the project throughout our DESIGNBUILD process. Obstacles and deterrents are more easily recognized and handled accordingly. With over 64 years of experience, we confidently stand behind our work with an industry‑leading, five‑year warranty.


Less Stress

We believe we best serve you by partnering with you. We invite you to become an integral part of the DESIGNBUILD process, working directly with our award‑winning architects, designers, engineers, and construction professionals. With your direct involvement, our experienced team will develop the right solution at the right cost. You can rely on us to do the hard work of delivering on time and within budget, from the simplest of projects to the most complex.
