G.L.Lewis Construction Services is a Florida General Contractor (License # CGC1528896)
The design-build process works closely with key subcontractors and consultants from the conceptual design throughout completion of the construction drawings and specifications. Plans and specifications are reviewed in detail with the trades at key milestones to determine actual costs, identify LEED materials and develop a list of alternatives for the owner to consider. Continuous review of local construction costs by the design-build team assures a project design remains within budget and is completed on time.
The design-build delivery method gives the client one point of contact for both the design and construction phases and involvement throughout the decision making process. It offers a collaborative environment with the client, architect, general contractor, and subconsultants, creating a successful partnership. Design-build improves efficiency and saves time and money, making it the best overall value for your project.
As a general contractor and construction manager, G.L.Lewis Construction Services is committed to meet all of the client’s goals and objectives, and will coordinate construction oversight and reporting, safety and quality assurance, payment application processing, change management, FF&E facilitation, punch list coordination, and closeout and commissioning. The key to a successful project is to plan, communicate, collaborate and innovate throughout the entire general construction process.
Our experience has taught us that getting involved early is the key. By doing so, we are better able to understand the project as it relates to owners’ needs and expectations. The pre-construction process involves delivery methods, accurate conceptual and detailed cost estimating, logistics planning, scheduling and selection of the best building systems for a particular project.
Our extensive history of completed projects provides historical analysis and also allows our general contractor to finish our jobs on time and as efficiently as possible. This empowers our estimating team with invaluable information to provide accurate, realistic numbers.
We develop and maintain a master schedule, identifying long lead times, as well as design milestones, permits and approvals, early bid package and phasing.
Our goal during the pre-construction process is to eliminate surprises once construction begins, and to build the project as cost effectively as possible. This is a collaborative effort between subcontractors, owner, architect, design-build consultants, structural and mechanical engineers, and our management team.

Our extensive experience with a wide variety of building types and market segments enables us to bring forth new and innovative ideas that have a direct impact on the performance and cost of the building.
