J.M. Cope offers a closed book construction methodology utilizing a preexisting set of construction drawings and specifications with a focus on upfront pricing.
Owners are most familiar with this method. It is a linear process where one task follows completion of another with no overlap possible. Plans and specifications are completed by the architect and their consultants, then contractor bids are solicited. Contractors bid the project exactly as designed with the lowest responsive and responsible bidder awarded the work. The design consultant team is selected separately and reports directly to the owner.
