We strategize with our clients to develop an effective program that clearly defines the objectives of each project.
Preliminary cost estimates are developed to determine the cost and feasibility of design, permitting and construction, preliminary property requirements and other governmental requirements. Then, we create an analysis of our findings with supporting maps, photos, preliminary designs, and cost tables. Finally, we discuss potential difficulties and define and compare alternatives.
The preconstruction services we provide to our clients give them the big picture view of the project and provides them solid information to make informed decisions. This early-stage process eliminates cost surprises and makes the building process easier for you.
This popular delivery system is designed to support the owner and maximize project success. Belz Construction serves as the owner advocate, applying effective management techniques throughout the entire scope of the project – including planning, design, and construction.
Our experienced, consistent guidance results in top-quality construction that delivers on time and within budget.
For our clients that prefer the traditional competitive bid process after the completion of the design drawings, we offer General Contracting Services. Our strong base of subcontractors allows us to provide competitive bids in various markets across the country.

Belz Construction has multiple staff members that have received the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association’s healthcare construction certification. The certificates were awarded by ASHE following an intensive educational course designed to meet the unique needs of the healthcare professional. Participants were groomed to communicate the healthcare language more efficiently; identify the latest trends in healthcare design; and understand the complex compliance issues facing healthcare providers today.
The ASHE certification represents the total commitment by Belz Construction to better serve their healthcare clients in some of the most complex and challenging facets of the design and construction industry. Construction in an active healthcare facility requires stringent safety practices, expert communication skills, and solid teamwork to successfully complete the work with minimal inconvenience to patients and staff. The ASHE curriculum has provided us with special expertise to understand the unique needs and expectations of our healthcare facility owners and to apply those sensitive practices as they relate to the construction process.
The elite certification also covered contemporary issues in the healthcare environment including:
- Inner workings of a healthcare facility
- Methods to integrate a quality control program
- Ways to strengthen relationships between team members
- Latest compliance issues in the industry
Belz Construction is a leader in the field of Healthcare design and construction and is dedicated to compliance with the standards as set forth by American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE).
As the concern regarding the availability of natural resources and living in a healthy environment increases, so has the interest in sustainable design and construction that reduces the use of non-renewable resources while improving a building’s performance.
Belz Construction is at the forefront of this effort developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), which is comprised of industry trend makers like Belz who support environmentally responsible building.
LEEDing the Industry Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) is the “nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.” Our LEED® Accredited Professionals have proven experience in navigating the client and project team successfully through the LEED® Certification process.
In order to achieve LEED® Certification, buildings must meet stringent design and construction guidelines.
What is BIM?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an architectural, engineering and construction workflow of utilizing information which has been loaded into a building design project. The information in a virtual model is commonly utilized in the areas of building design and engineering, material takeoff and cost estimating. Industry focus continues to be on the 3D value of a model which allows the building team to better plan, design, visualize, and construct the built environment.
Benefits of BIM
Overall, a building information model allows building owners to visualize their investment in a whole new way, in an accurately displayed virtual environment. Belz Architecture+Construction has embraced Building Information Modeling and strives to utilize technologies associated with this workflow. Having the ability to better communicate and coordinate with architects (in-house), engineers, building owners, and subcontractors improves our operating efficiency, and greatly defines our success as a Design/Build Contractor. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is transforming the design and construction industry and Belz Architecture+Construction is at the leading edge of this technology.
BIM Services & Experiences
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is transforming the design and construction industry. Currently, many design firms are beginning to embrace three-dimensional (3D) modeling tools. Belz Architecture+Construction has fully embraced the use of BIM for the design and construction process. We have full-time professionals devoted exclusively to BIM for construction projects.
Our use of BIM includes:
- Design Review Constructability Review Utility Modeling
