Commercial General Contractors Orange County
The company has been a commercial general contractor in Orange County for many years. A well-earned reputation for quality and attention to detail attracts clients from the public and private sector.
Design-Build Orange County
Echo Pacific is available as a design-bid-build contractor, a design build contractor, or as an at risk contractor. A 2011 study shows that design-build was the project delivery method of choice for roughly 40 percent of all non-residential construction projects completed in 2010. California was no exception, and design build construction in Orange County followed the national trend. Design-build project delivery is desirable because it limits the liability placed on the owner for design errors and saves both time and money.
Construction Management at Risk Orange County
For construction management at risk project delivery, Echo Pacific assists in pre-construction project management support on behalf of the owner and then assumes the role of general contractor. Under this method of project delivery, Echo Pacific incurs risk by assuming financial responsibility for all project cost overruns. Echo Pacific also shoulders the liability for the company’s timely construction performance as the prime contractor and for the performance of all subcontractors involved on the project.
Pre-Construction Services Orange County
Pre-construction services offered in Orange County include feasibility studies, constructability analyses, site assessment, mobilization plan preparation, and budget development. It is during the pre-construction phase that Echo Pacific, acting as the construction manager, reviews plans and specifications to recommend materials and components to be used for the project.

Knowing that time is money, Echo Pacific monitors all construction activities for timely completion and holds all project activities to budget constraints.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) Orange County
The company uses advanced building information modeling techniques on all Orange County projects to represent the physical characteristics of a proposed facility. These digital models are used to support all subsequent design and construction decisions. The data is maintained throughout the construction phase, and facility owners and operators are provided with the models after construction to facilitate a smooth transfer of building control.
Lease-Leaseback Orange County
The company also offers lease-leaseback options in Orange County. This is a specific type of design-build project delivery where the client first leases the project site to Echo Pacific, Echo Pacific develops the site by constructing the facility under a guaranteed maximum price constraint, Echo Pacific then leases the property and the facility back to the client, and the client owns the project at the end of the lease term. This approach is being used more and more by school districts.
