Utilizing the Design / Build approach, our clients receive their project faster, at a lower cost and with a lower amount of risk. By having a single source for both design and construction, redundancy is eliminated, communication is improved and the client is provided with much greater control over the project.

    • Conceptual Programming
    • AutoCAD Produced Drawings

    • Permitting
  • Preconstruction Services

    Preconstruction Services

    Preconstruction is the critical phase where the groundwork is laid for the entire project.  The earlier we are involved in a project, the easier it is to build a "team atmosphere" which is essential in making the project successful.  A major component of preconstruction is working with the design team to eliminate potential problems before they ever get to the jobsite, thereby saving valuable time and money.

    VK Powell performs a broad range of preconstruction services:

    • Design Review and Commentary
    • Constructability Review
    • Real-Time Budgeting
    • Scheduling
    • Value Engineering (VE)
    • Assistance with Permitting
  • General Construction Services

    General Construction Services

    For over 70 years, VK Powell Construction has been providing construction services across the Northwest.  As a general contractor, we have built a wide variety of projects from industrial plants to extremely custom structures.  We pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to new and innovative types of construction.  Our understanding of systems allows us to take on even the most complex projects.  Project delivery methods include hard money bid projects, negotiated lump sum contracts and guaranteed maximum (GMAX) contracts.  Because we have a large client base, you will sometimes find us replacing a door, adjusting hardware or moving an office partition long after the project has been completed.  Our company is about relationships, and it is our goal to deliver the best value for our clients' hard earned dollar.

  • Self-Performed Work

    Self-Performed Work

    VK Powell has the ability to self-perform many aspects of a project's construction.  We have found that by self-performing major portions of a project, we have better control of its overall quality and schedule.

    Typical self-performed work includes:

    • Structural and Architectural Concrete
    • Structural and Miscellaneous Steel Erection
    • Rough and Finish Carpentry
    • Door and Hardware Installation
    • Steel Studs
    • Drywall
    • Specialties

    Although we have the ability to self-perform many parts of a project, we continually solicit subcontractor bids for these areas of work to ensure our prices are competitive.  The client is always part of this self-check process.
