Delivery Methods

General Contracting


As a general contractor, Johnson & Galyon is responsible for the overall coordination of the project from start to finish. And when safety is the top priority, quality doesn’t fall far behind. We hire the best subcontractors and provide the best quality material, labor, and equipment throughout the process to ensure the project is completed to the best of our ability.

Services include:

  • Project Management and supervision
  • Waste and recycling management
  • Cost and quality control
  • Quality Control
  • Permitting
  • Project scheduling
  • Compliance with all government and special inspections

Using a traditional bid approach, Johnson & Galyon bids out work and selects subcontractors based on price and their ability to perform on behalf of our clients. Johnson & Galyon is the “firm of choice” for many subcontractors because we pay promptly and clarify inconsistencies early in the process. As a result, we frequently receive lower bids, which benefits us and our clients.

Johnson & Galyon maintains a core group of craftsmen, allowing us to provide efficient, productive labor across several construction divisions. Additionally, our field employees often “self-perform” work, which has become one of our greatest resources

Through this delivery method, Johnson & Galyon provides construction services based on a fixed price and in accordance with the contract documents.

Construction Management at Risk


In this delivery method, Johnson & Galyon creates a team consisting of the owner and designers. From planning through construction, this team collaborates for the duration of the project, resulting in faster project delivery, reduced costs, increased quality, and improved scheduling.

We offer pre-construction services in a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), which can be provided as early as the design development phase if needed. We review incomplete documents to identify “gaps” and conflicts and consult with the owners to confirm their preferences regarding vendors and other team members. Johnson & Galyon also works closely with subcontractors to competitively bid or negotiate contracts, according to what best suits the project.

Design Build

In this delivery method, the client defines specific project requirements and contracts directly with a single team to provide both design and construction for the project. It is our job to assemble a team of experts including designers, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors who are equipped with the skills needed to take your project from start to finish. With this approach, we assume accountability for all aspects of the project, so you can focus on running your business. Because design and construction are together, coordination is typically improved, which benefits scheduling, estimating, quality control, and the value engineering process, while reducing risk. Many of Johnson & Galyon’s most loyal clients utilize this approach.
