Paschen is an industry leader in helping owners save time and money before construction even begins.
That’s the Paschen Way.

Design-Build Construction and Value Engineering

For many construction companies and owners, waste seems to be an unfortunate but acceptable part of doing business. That’s not the case at Paschen.

Through our advanced Design-Build Construction and Value Engineering services, we work with owners and architects on the front end, providing creative ideas and expert solutions to ensure the most efficient, cost-effective process possible.

Design-Build Construction

Paschen’s Design-Build Construction service is a highly efficient, turnkey solution that brings design and construction services under one contract.

For owners, using a single design build contractor provides multiple benefits, including:

  • Expediting delivery times
  • Eliminating extensive procurement times
  • Minimizing risk through a single, accountable entity
  • Reducing the hassle of multiple contracts and contractors
An industry leader in alternative delivery methods, Paschen is uniquely positioned to provide high-quality design build construction services. Unlike most general contractors, we have on-staff professionals in both the design and construction phases. In addition, we offer vast experience in a broad range of sectors—including roads, healthcare, schools and mass transit—with dedicated departments and specialized experts to plan and execute the work on each project.

A testament to Paschen’s outstanding design build work is the award-winning Veterans Memorial Campus Charter School in Chicago, which we completed in 2009 for the United Neighborhood Organization.

Value Engineering

Led by our in-house team of experts, Paschen offers state-of-the art value engineering services to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for any construction job.

Working in conjunction with the owner and design firm, Paschen’s value engineering team analyzes a project or design and provides ideas to save money in areas such as construction and long-term maintenance costs. Drawing on our extensive experience, we are able to determine cost-saving methods that are highly specific to the job at hand, including simplifying the construction process and using alternative materials and equipment.

A true representation of Paschen’s commitment to value engineering is proven by the half a million dollars savings experienced on the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority’s reconstruction of the southbound Tri-State Project.
