Whatever your project needs. We deliver.

Construction Manager-at-RiskCollaboration. Communication. Results.

By engaging as Construction Manager-at-Risk early in the design process, Bartlett Cocke General Contractors brings added value during preconstruction to help keep the project within budget and on schedule, while developing a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for your project. We focus on fostering a collaborative environment built on frequent and open communication. As your CM-at-Risk, we are responsible for dealing with such issues as jobsite safety and security, subcontractor selection and management, fluctuations in material prices, schedule adherence, construction means and methods and quality.

Bartlett Cocke General Contractors was a pioneer in the CM-at-Risk project delivery method. We were selected for the first CM-at-Risk contract awarded by a public institution in Texas, the Pearsall Independent School District, and we were selected for the first CM-at-Risk contract awarded by the University of Texas System.

Our success has led to our firm being ranked consistently among the top CM-at-Risk firms in Texas.  Call us today to learn how we can help you achieve the best value for your construction investment.

Design/BuildCreative Vision. Superior Execution.

When properly executed, Design-Build – a delivery method under which the owner contracts with one entity to both design and build their project – results in an alliance between the designer and builder that fosters collaboration and teamwork. This can provide numerous benefits to you, including:






Singular Responsibility – A single point of contact means you can focus on the project rather than managing multiple contracts and entities. And because we’re all in this together, everyone works in a collaborative environment to find solutions to challenges that arise.

Faster Delivery – Total delivery time is reduced because construction commences before design is finished. Also bidding periods and redesign are eliminated. Resulting time savings means lower costs and earlier occupancy in your new facility.

Cost Savings – An integrated design and construction team works more effectively and is focused on efficiency and innovation.

Total Accountability – One entity is responsible for cost, schedule, quality and performance.

Improved Risk Management – Change orders are virtually eliminated because the design-build entity assumes the responsibility for developing drawings and specifications, as well as constructing a fully-functioning facility.

Utilizing the IPD philosophy, we foster a collaborative effort amongst the design, construction and facilities operations teams throughout the entire duration of the project. By working together as a unified team and leveraging the capabilities of BIM, we are able to realize each of the following goals:

  • Project completed on-time and within budget
  • Reduce waste by maximizing prefabrication using enhanced, 3D coordination
  • Optimize quality and reduce rework through virtual prototyping prior to field installation
  • Increase field productivity and improve safety by reducing onsite exposure through prefabrication
  • Increase levels of understanding, collaboration and communication project-wide
  • Increase levels of document and trade coordination
  • Reduce RFIs and ASIs
  • Streamline data & documentation collection process for integration with the Building Maintenance Management System

Darrell Glasscock Quotes[Bartlett Cocke General Contractors'] collaboration with the design team, through the Construction-Manager-at-Risk project delivery method, was exemplary. They were not only frugal in finding solutions for construction challenges, through their experience and expertise, but they were also very sincere in preserving the historic nature of the building.

BIMVisualizing the Future. Enhancing Building Performance.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is becoming a widely accepted tool in the construction industry because of its ability to maximize value, optimize schedule efficiency, improve safety and assure superior project quality. For more than five years, Bartlett Cocke General Contractors has utilized BIM from preconstruction to construction and beyond.

From the outset, BIM becomes an effective tool for communicating design intent, allowing stakeholders to see a virtual image of what their building will look like inside and out. Thanks to the ability to identify conflicts and constructability issues before they materialize in the field, less rework leads to less cost.

Further, for those projects delivered under a GMP, project savings are returned to the owner. And in many instances, our clients benefit from ease of maintenance and enhanced facility performance because the building model can provide consolidated and thorough information on operations, maintenance and warranty terms.

Our Earth. Our Responsibility.

As  builders, we realize we have a significant effect on our environment and natural resources. At Bartlett Cocke General Contractors, we are committed to finding ways to impact our environment in a positive way. Many of these solutions, like selecting local building materials or collecting rainwater, don’t require a costly investment.

We are continuously searching for and implementing innovative techniques that utilize less non-renewable energy, reduce pollution and wastes, and cost fewer energy dollars. Through Life Cycle and Life Cycle Cost Analysis, we can look at the building envelope and mechanical/ electrical systems to help you better define your operational and energy performance goals so you can make informed cost decisions and determine your best return on investment.

While a number of our projects have received certification through LEED, TX-CHPS, the Austin Energy 3-Star and Green Advantage programs, many of our clients have implemented sustainable principles without seeking certification. All of these projects have resulted in significant savings for our owners, in terms of both construction and energy costs.

Sustainable principles we’ve employed include:

  • Protecting existing plants and vegetation during construction
  • Creating zones of activity, placing the most intrusive land uses as far away as possible from the most environmentally sensitive areas
  • Salvaging and reusing topsoil and excavated rock on site
  • Utilizing building materials native to the region
  • Minimizing transportation of building materials
  • Utilizing durable products with long life spans such as concrete, masonry, stone, steel and wood, to reduce the amount of future waste
  • Stockpiling refuse and designating construction vehicle parking only in areas that will ultimately be built on
  • Assisting with or performing total building commissioning
  • Separating construction debris for recycling, minimizing the impact on our landfills
  • Collecting rainwater and condensate, as well as utilizing greywater, for irrigation purposes
