What You Get with a SageWater Design-Build Project

Turnkey construction, all delivered by SageWater tradespeople.

Dedicated project managers and crews working collaboratively to drive efficiency in scheduling, communication, and construction.

Resident-centric communications that ensure everyone in your community knows what to expect.

What Makes SageWater Design-Build Services Different?

Accurate project scope Engineers, architects, and construction managers don’t perform repipes every day. But we do! This means we are on top of industry best practices. We avoid “over-engineering” your project and instead focus on value-engineering, delivering an appropriate scope and saving you money.

Lower project cost The biggest cost drivers in a repipe project are the unknown conditions behind your walls, ceilings, and floors. We leverage decades of expertise to deliver an accurate project estimate with near-zero change orders, keeping your costs low.

Accelerated timeline One provider means you’ll start–and finish–your project sooner. In a traditional model, it can take a year or more to select a construction manager, hire an engineer, review the design, put the construction project out to bid, compare RFP responses, interview top candidates, and execute a contract.

Single point of accountability Your solution is our responsibility, since we designed it. You won’t have to deal with the differences of opinion that can occur between a contractor and an engineer. If we find anything that requires your attention, we bring it directly to you—along with the proposed solution.
