Construction Activities and Expertise of the Dorman Construction Firm

More Info about the Dorman Construction Firm

Dorman Construction, Inc., ("Dorman") was established in August 1990 by Steve Dorman in order to provide high-quality, profitable construction services for both the public and private sectors. It is a general contracting firm focusing on commercial, industrial, and medical projects in Oregon. This company has built its foundation upon the philosophical principles of honesty, fairness, teamwork, and commitment for every project, from conception to completion.

Dorman is capable of managing your projects through a variety of contracting methods:

  • Traditional General Contract (Design-Bid-Build) — The client gets a firm price under a traditional, Lump Sum Bid general contract along with a scheduled commitment; Dorman gets it done.
  • Design-build Contract (Design-Build) — Dorman has extensive contacts in the architectural, structural, site services, mechanical, and electrical design communities. We will hire a competent team of design professionals and then work closely with them to assist with constructability, preliminary cost estimates and schedule requirements to meet the overall desires of the Owner. Upon the receipt of final documents a final hard bid or guaranteed maximum price based on the cost of work plus a fee is established with open or select subcontractor bidding to bring the project from concept to completion.
  • Construction Management — General Contracting (CM-GC) — The client gets the best of both worlds with the traditional scope of work performed by a general contractor combined with a construction manager. The owner selects a contractor early in the process to accept the role of collaborating with the design team in the development and preparation of the documents. Once the design has progressed to an acceptable level, the GM/GC submits a guaranteed maximum price.

In all instances, we both subcontract or self-perform carpentry-related portions of the work to ensure quality and cost-effective products for our valued customers.

Cost Estimating / Budgeting

Dorman Construction employs several talented estimators, Project Managers, as well as other staff members provide support. Budgeting is a constant tool when managing projects since:

  • Each line item contains a cost budget assigned before and adjusted during construction.
  • It is a vital part of the value engineering process.
  • It is applies to all change orders and/or changes in scope of work requested by the design team.

Dorman's approach to cost estimating and budgeting is to provide the Owner with the most accurate information possible based on:

  • Size and type of proposed project
  • Past experience on similar projects
  • Basic construction knowledge
  • Industry standards

Value Engineering

Value engineering is undoubtedly one of the most critical, if not the most critical stage of any project. In order to gain the maximum benefit from the value engineering process, it is vitally important to start as early as possible in the project process. The further along the project develops the opportunities for cost reduction ideas diminish in quantity and magnitude.

Dorman works closely with all team members to examine the cost-effectiveness of basic planning alternatives. We will concentrate on the impact of the selection of one particular system or material over another. Our goal is to see that Owners receive the best value for their money.
