What is Design-Build?

Design-Build is a contractual method by which architectural, engineering and construction services are performed under a SINGLE CONTRACT with the owner.


Hello to positive working relationships! The increasingly popular approach also gets your project finished on-time, in-budget!


Through this process, our in-house design engineers develop permit plans for a building from the owner's ideas with all parties on board from the start. Speed Fab-Crete can control the elements of time and money, giving you a cost and projected occupancy date before construction begins.

Affordable Creativity

Callahan & Freeman Architects is the primary design component when Speed Fab-Crete performs under a Design-Build contract.


Award-winning architects Frank Callahan and Chuck Freeman deliver creativity, less traditional expense. Representing some of the best and brightest organizations in the Southwest, Callahan & Freeman deliver master planning, and facility design for many of Speed Fab-Crete's design-build projects.
