It’s all about your DELIVERY METHOD.

Why is your delivery method important? Because it determines when those collaborating on your project… you, the design team and the builders…become engaged. Your delivery method influences the type of contract you select and it has a significant impact on your project cost and schedule.

Pray Construction, plan and design

Start with DESIGN-BUILD.

Which delivery method is best for you? Let us help you determine.

Design-build is a collaborative process that puts you – the owner – at the table, making important decisions about your project before it is too late to matter. Design-build starts with a team including you, the design team and the contractor, working together from the early conceptual phase through construction. If you want a project that is delivered on time (or early) and on budget (or under).

A tradition of building excellence.

Pray Construction Company is the leading design builder in West Virginia, delivering high quality work completed on time and within budget. We are focused on exceeding customer expectations.

ASK US EARLY and we can help you determine your best path. Trust us, our customers do. Just ask them.
