General Contracting

General Contracting (GC) is the traditional design-bid-build approach to construction delivery. As a true builder, DC Sparks Construction is passionate about the GC delivery method. We provide hard bids on select and invitation-only (prequalification based) construction opportunities throughout Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

We are regularly awarded GC assignments either by providing the lowest price to build or by coming up with the best value-engineering suggestions for an overall value proposition. Established relationships with trade contractors founded on trust and experience and extensive market knowledge enable us to be extremely competitive while providing unsurpassed quality.

General Contracting is best suited for straightforward projects that are subject to minimal changes or projects subject to strict procurement policies requiring lump sum bids. GC offers the simplest form of contract and offers a high degree of traditional 'checks and balances' between the architect and builder.

Our GC services include:

  • Cost control measures

  • Schedule control

  • Managing all trade contractors

  • Shop drawing and submittal review

  • Field Supervision

  • Professional Project Management


While the General Contracting delivery method does not always benefit from the value engineering and schedule acceleration opportunities from the more collaborative delivery methods like Construction Management or Design/Build...'Low Bid' is not always 'Best Value'. DC Sparks Construction always recommends strictly pre-qualifying our subcontractors and conducting thorough post-bid interviews.
