Two gates team members meeting with construction plans.


At GATES, we believe it is important to establish ourselves as an integral part of your team very early in the process. While critical, the goals of pre-construction are not simply to define cost and schedule. In addition, we are committed to working with you and your teams to leverage the full benefit of our ability while identifying and actively planning for construction issues that impact budget and schedule objectives.

Conference Room


Design-build is a project delivery system where, in contrast to “design-bid-build”, both the design and construction are contracted through a single entity and thus a single source of responsibility committed to achieving all project goals.

GATES will expedite, manage, and document this entire process of design and construction so that each team member is positioned to fulfill their unique roles. A full-time senior project manager will be directly involved with all such aspects including, development, permitting, estimating, and construction delivery.
