Design Build

Design-Build & Construction Management

Morton designBUILD is construction-driven design. Our services go far more in-depth than providing construction plans, however.  This is our proven, process approach to construction.  We developed the designBUILD process with our customer in mind, as it enables us to deliver projects that meet your scope, schedule, and budget.  This alleviates stress, eliminates time loss, and ultimately reduces the overall project cost, as our design fees are nominal and included as part of the construction package.  

A whole team of vertically integrated Morton construction professionals – architects, engineers, project managers, drafters, on-site construction coordinators -- focus exclusively on executing our unique designBUILD process for Morton Buildings’ projects.  This collaborative team works with you every step of the way to ensure the project stays within budget and schedule. 

If you have an architect or general contractor that you love working with, that’s ok, we play nice with others too. 

Our concept to completion services will guide you through the early stages of planning, through design, to the actual construction of your building and beyond.  We go a step further than other design-build firms—we use Morton materials, Morton craftsmen, and Morton construction techniques to deliver the most comprehensive, integrated, and full-service approach to project management today.

Whether you’re a design professional looking for an experienced construction partner or a business owner looking to expand, Morton designBUILD can coordinate the design and construction of your project. From vet clinics and event venues to retail centers and churches, every Morton building is customized to meet your present and future needs.  We work with companies and organizations in various stages of their building project—some have already had plans drawn by an outside architect, some are only in the planning phase, and some are ready for our designers/architects to draw up plans and move forward with construction.  No matter what stage you are in currently, we will help guide you to the best possible outcome. 

We utilize a Project Delivery System (PDS) that includes these four areas:

  • Project Development
  • Concept Package
  • Construction Package
  • Construction
