The increasingly relevant international building codes (IBC), even clean design principles for sanitary facilities that follow AMI guidelines. After all, the last thing any of us want is to have a problem on our hands which could be potentially dangerous- like state fire marshals holding things up! While concentrating on industrial/food processing opportunities; we can quickly respond when emergencies occur. Proactively solving problems and gaining necessary permits are second nature to us- it’s what sets us apart from other companies.

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

By utilizing 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 throughout the design phase to identify every efficiency. This continuous process holds down cost while reducing risk by providing you with an accurate estimation at any point in your project’s life cycle.

RFW Construction Group believes strongly in the value of “self-perform” contracting.

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.

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-throughs


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.
