a History of design-build

From the very beginning, (which was 1975 for VIP), we knew what we wanted to accomplish – to serve our clients more effectively by forming a design-build company that would integrate the best elements of design and construction.

VIP Structures started small and grew slowly. Even at our smallest, however, we offered combined design and commercial construction services – which was key to our advancement in our industry. As we looked at our progress, it became clear that our integrated design-build model yielded a distinct competitive advantage for our clients and for us. Incorporating design and construction under one roof increased our operating efficiencies, eliminated overlapping overheads, reduced costs, and simplified communication – and a greater understanding of our client’s goals emerged!
