General Contracting


Under a standard General Contracting delivery method, sometimes referred to Design-Bid-Build, the Owner employs a design team. The design team develops the drawings and specifications for the project which are used to obtain competitive bids from several contractors. Typically, the contractor with the lowest qualified bid will be awarded the project.

This delivery method has typically been used by government agencies to procure projects.  CAM Construction has completed many of its projects under this delivery method. Many of these procurements have a pre-qualification phase to ensure only qualified contractors bid on a project.
