NewGround quality on-site, every step of your build.

Your Complete Build,
Coordinated by NewGround

Some projects are well-suited to a local general contractor. But not always. Depending on your project, the availability of the trades in your area, and the situation on the ground, you may need an on-site partner with global experience to coordinate your local resources.

When you choose NewGround International for a Traditional Design/Build solution, you get all of our Construction Management at Risk services, along with one of our experienced on-site project managers.

How It Works

Step 1: We complete contractor negotiations and due diligence.

Start with peace of mind. We’ll help you evaluate vendors and contractors based on their prices, credit ratings, financial viability, and experience levels. We check every bid against our designs, so the price on the initial bid will — more often than not — be the price you pay.

Step 2: You make final decisions.

Since we pre-negotiate our rate and operate with an open book, you can be sure we’ll give you our best recommendations on vendors and prices. You get the best possible information to make the best possible decisions.

Step 3: We coordinate across all teams.

Get one team and project management system to oversee all phases of your project. We start with Strategy and Design. And we can stay on the project until all Interiors are installed and ready for prime time.

Step 4: We assume the risk and ensure quality.

Visualize the ideal placement, adjacencies, and sizing of various spaces within an existing building, proposed expansion, or ground-up build.

Step 5: We coordinate regular, collaborative check-in meetings.

Who’s on your side of the table? When you work with NewGround, it’s our complete integrated team. We keep your project collaborative and on track.

Step 6: You receive a completed project, end to end.

With NewGround, you get a team that’s with you from Strategy and Design through to finishing touches and installations. We get the job done.
