Our professional team of skilled construction executives, project managers, estimators, superintendents and skilled workforce work to ensure that your vision is delivered and expectations exceeded.
Ronco offers building and construction services from Preconstruction consulting to Design-Build and Design-Assist delivery systems, General Contracting and Construction Management. We also provide Pre-Engineered or Customized solutions to make your vision a reality.
Building is a discovery process and the right contractor can be a skilled ally in advancing conceptual ideas and charting a realistic path to success. Using preliminary sketches, we are able to produce conceptual estimates with surprising detail and accuracy.
As the design progresses, we may suggest changes that improve the end product and get us there faster without altering the designer’s original intent. The value of early insight really shines through when we discover gaps that could lead to budget or scheduling crises later. Our proactive approach results in project goals being upheld.
As the Construction Manager, we work alongside the architect, engineer and owner to optimize project design, schedule and cost. We negotiate a guaranteed maximum price based on preliminary design documents that reflect the anticipated scope of the project.
We also competitively bid all trade contracts to ensure the client receives the lowest price from qualified subcontractors. Being a team player, we are known for our conceptual strengths, and our continued focus on solving conflicts proactively and collaboratively.
When price is the ultimate factor, or municipal laws enforce competitive bidding, Ronco relies upon our decades of experience and billions of dollars of project estimating to arrive at a competitive cost. We bid on and commence general contracting work as it’s awarded to us when design is near completion.
As a General Contractor, Ronco holds all trade contracts and is responsible for delivering all work based on a lump sum price. This approach requires less day-to-day involvement on the owner’s side and assumes project variables are more clear-cut. However, we take nothing for granted. During the bid process and beyond, we act as a confirmed partner working to fulfill the owner’s objectives. We consult with the project team and consistently monitor costs so we can deliver more of what you want in the finished product. That’s the ultimate value of choosing Ronco Construction as the General Contractor for your projects throughout the Midwest.
When an owner contracts directly with a single entity to perform design and construction, that’s Design-Build. It’s a great approach for clients who know what they want up front, because it streamlines delivery. It simplifies procurement of design and construction services, offering customers the convenience of dealing with a single point of contact.
Projects are often awarded to design-build teams who compete on qualifications and sometimes price. The owner’s request for services may contain reasonably solid design criteria or preliminary sketches only. In the latter case we’d use our own architect consultants to advance our design proposal. Price is fixed early in the process, although the owner may negotiate the price until design is finalized. With this approach, we’re responsible for all phases of the building process.
In fact, we’re 100% responsible for building performance and materials long after project close-out, an advantage that gives the owner added security when embarking on a Design-Build contract. Using this method, we have found great success in ensuring the delivery of outstanding projects that meet the owner’s needs and budget.
Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings
As a pre-engineered metal building supplier and installer, Ronco is able to offer advantages beyond traditional construction. Cost savings begin on the drawing board and continue at the job site for years to come. We work with architects, engineers, developers and owners to meet your budgetary considerations and future expansion needs.
Systems design and fabrication methods help reduce interim financing costs through faster construction and minimized field labor expense. Plus, you have the added benefit of earlier occupancy and a head start on day-to-day operations.
The skilled team at Ronco’s in-house mill shop specialize in building custom interior or exterior features that enhance your space. The design possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
If you have an idea for a business display, custom casework piece, or 20-ton sculpture, Ronco can deliver on any of your creative needs. With multiple requests for custom projects every year, we are experienced in bringing your custom features and creative ideas to life.
