what we do

Services

O‑A‑K specializes in managing the building process. We offer several flexible delivery options ranging from traditional general contracting to hybrid construction management – and everything in between. Whichever delivery method is right for you, you can expect accurate, intentional and inclusive customer service from start to finish.

Construction Management

The majority of our clients prefer this delivery option, because it maximizes the value of our partnership. As your construction manager, we lead the team from the earliest stages of planning. You can expect full transparency every step of the way.

    Preconstruction Services

    Before construction begins, we dissect the evolving design to help you understand the impact of every decision. Things like life-cycle costs, value engineering ideas and schedule enhancements are incorporated early. While your dream begins to take shape, we magnify the project scope through an owner-focused lens.

  • Facilities Assessments

    Our facilities assessment services give you a “nuts and bolts” perspective on the current condition of each of your facilities. The process begins with an expert analysis of existing conditions and collaboration among our estimators and constructability specialists. When complete, our assessments can be used as a tool to guide your team in the earliest stages of long-term master planning.

  • Virtual Construction

    Using the Building Information Modeling (BIM) system, we compile construction drawings of each building component into a highly-detailed, three-dimensional building map. This system provides an efficient means of:

    • Trade coordination prior to construction
    • Preemptive discovery of conflicts between building components
    • Virtual representation for budgeting and estimating
    • Minimizing field fabrication
    • Post-construction facility maintenance
  • Bond Campaign Development

    Our goal in campaign development is simple: to help you pass your bond. We can start working with you no matter where you are in the process, helping you communicate your facility needs with the community. With an organizational structure and process that is easy to execute, we provide a customized campaign tool kit that reflects the key messages of your program.
