What Sets Our Design-Build Approach Apart

Self-Performance, Proven Expertise

Value Engineering

If there’s an opportunity to save cost or push the schedule, we’ll find it, either through operational adjustments, material choices, or design changes. Adding value is central to how we perform.

Design Due Diligence

Design-build projects allow our engineers and project teams even greater opportunity to identify and address potential design flaws early on in the process of an infrastructure project.

Partner Collaboration

At Scott Bridge Company, we thrive when presented with the opportunity on design-build infrastructure projects to become a fully integrated, contributing member of the project design team.

Relationship Driven

On every project, we’re determined to form positive relationships with all members and stakeholders, because we want to continue partnering together successfully in the future.

What Our Design-Build Partners Say

“I’ve worked with The Scott Bridge Company for over ten years on numerous bridge projects. I consider them the best water crossing bridge constructors that I have worked with in my 35 year career of bridge projects. Their management team, estimators, and construction engineering folks are top notch and are great teammates in project pursuits and execution. Their jobsites are clean, safe, and construction quality is outstanding. But what I like the most about working with them is that for the most part I’m still dealing with the same Scott Family members and Key staff that I have from the beginning and ALL of these folks operate with the utmost integrity and are true to their word which I’m sure would make their founders proud.”
