government enable us to consistently deliver the highest quality product, on time and on budget.

Hawkins and Kolb Construction was one of the first contractors in the Sumter area to offer full "Design Build" services as well as traditional "Design-Bid-Build" delivery methods. As a leader in Design Build construction Hawkins and Kolb Construction can show you how this process can give you maximum value for your dollar while maintaining the highest quality standards and significantly cut project completion time from start to finish.

With our "Design Build" process, rather than dealing with multiple companies and individuals, Hawkins and Kolb is your single source project manager. A single source accountable to you, responsible for assembling a complete project team and providing all cost and schedule accountability and control. This process creates a partnership between

you, the architects or designers, the subcontractors, and all major suppliers for your project and as a result communication is greatly improved from day one and throughout the entire project. This frees you from the burden of trying to manage several different disparate contracts and gives you a single "Goto" for your project from beginning to end.

Using our design build process we will "Value Engineer" your project. The most expensive, or least expensive building component does not always determine the best long term value. Through "Value Engineering" , every dollar invested in the building can be optimized. This is an ongoing systematic process in which we identify ways to help our clients get the same functionality from their facility for less money. Our Design Build value engineering process weighs each choice against specific needs and objectives, resulting in

We handle all the necessary permitting, surveying, site evaluation. As your single source project contractor/manager we use our 30 plus years of experience and knowledge of the area and the latest code updates, to provide our clients with the most economical building solution that meets their needs and State and Local Building requirements.
