Design and Construction Services

RFW Construction Group offers design and construction services needed to accomplish any custom building project in a timely, cost-effective sustainable manner.  From proper location and sitting all the way to successful sustainability years from now, we plan it, prep it and pull it together.

Site Selection and Evaluation

Proper site selection of your facility is the crucial first step to a successful project. Whether you’re expanding or relocating, RFW Construction Group begins our decades of experience to bear from the very beginning. The better the selection and initial evaluation for location, environment, and access, the greater the likelihood of continued progress.

We partner with you for:

Master Planning / Identifying any unforeseen issues / Setting a development budget / Determining access to utilities / Analyzing access to transportation systems / Feasibility studies / Tax incentives – federal/state/local

We’ll be happy to share with you how we helped our clients get off to a good start.

Master Planning

RFW understands how much your success depends on our thorough, painstaking master planning. We insist on thoroughly understanding the scope of your project as well as your long-term corporate objectives. We use techniques like BIM (Building Information Modeling) and incorporate the latest in green and sustainable LEED practices.

When we sit down to plan, we focus on:

Project budgeting  / Type – new construction, renovation, or demo & rebuild  /  Scheduling  / Process layouts  /  Utilities  /  Facility sizing & layouts  /  Space planning  /  Facility programming

At RFW, thinking well past the project outcome helps ensure that the finished facility will meet your every need.


In-House Expertise

In addition to being licensed in most states (41 at last count), RFW brings a full contingent of in-house architects and engineers to your project:

Civil  /  Structural  /  Mechanical  /  Refrigeration  /  Electrical  /  Process

We Know the Codes

Whether it’s new construction, renovation, or demolition and rebuild, we understand the latest in local authority building codes and amendments – USDA, FDA, OSHA. The increasingly relevant international building codes (IBC). Even clean design principles for sanitary facilities that follow AMI (American Meat Institute) guidelines. After all, the last thing any of us want is the state fire marshal holding things up. While concentrating on industrial and food processing opportunities, we can respond quickly when emergencies arise. Proactively solving problems and gaining the necessary permits are second nature to us.

We're Up To Speed

We employ innovative approaches like client design charrettes and BIM (Building Information Modeling) to achieve the maximum value and increased sustainability for your project.


RFW believes success begins well before the first shovel breaks ground. The smarter the setup, the easier it is to get the results you seek.

Set Up For Success

With our national database of current costs, as well as prequalified subcontractors and suppliers, we produce detailed estimates – quickly and accurately – for your project. We manage bids and costs throughout the design phase. We identify every efficiency.

This continuous process of estimating and review holds down your costs and reduces your risk as the owner. 

The End Result?

You’ll have detailed scopes of work for each construction phase, with solid numbers and accurate timeline. Subcontractors and suppliers ready to start, whether it’s new construction, renovation, or demo and rebuild. No change orders, no surprises. Just a successful project waiting to happen.

Contact us to see how we can help your next project start successfully. Before it even gets off the ground.


RFW Construction Group believes strongly in the value of “self-perform” contracting. As we handle some of the initial construction, we set an example – and a standard of performance – for our subcontractors and suppliers. This adds tremendous value to the project. Whatever it is – safety issues, scheduling, coordinating, communicating – we’re hands-on and involved. We know how to roll up our sleeves and make it happen. All while having no impact on your existing operations.

We scrutinize every aspect of your project, looking for the best ways to get the building you need to help your business succeed. It all boils down to getting your project done – safely, efficiently, economically, on-time and in-budget. And NO SURPRISES.

As your design-build contractor, we’re responsible for:

Safety  /  Coordination Meetings  /   Schedule Management  /  Delivery Methods  /  Construction Management  /  Time and Material  /  Cost Management  /  Quality Management (Inspections)  /  Day One Training  /  Project Closeout/Warranty  /  Commissioning  /  Reporting Systems  /  Site Management – Safety/Cost/Quality/Schedule  /  Coordination of Trades  /  Permitting  /  Equipment Installation  /  Process Installation  /  Sustainable Construction

Building Green and Sustainable

Applying current green technologies results in both environmental and economic success. Especially when the energy savings can quickly add up. RFW Construction Group has adopted and practices the latest in LEED standards for sustainable design, preconstruction, and construction on every project. We have LEED-accredited professionals working in all our areas of service. We incorporate LEED-based principles into all aspects of the development and construction process. Your result? A high-performance, highly-efficient, cost-effective building.

BIM(Building Information Modeling)

BIM (Building Information Modeling) allows us to better plan and manage the needs of your project. It uses technology to build a graphical, digital model of your facility and how it will look at various stages throughout the design, pre-construction and construction process.

This multi-dimensional modeling approach offers:

Improved visualization and coordination of project conditions  /  A more economical building  /  Better building design  /  Scheduling simulation to anticipate potential roadblocks  /  “What-if” problem solving capability  /  Greater interface for the client with the process  /  Visualization/animation of renderings and virtual walk-thrus

Our approach to BIM offers greater coordination and an improved comfort level as your next project takes shape. It becomes much easier to see how you’ll succeed.
