Three Types of Construction Services

General Contracting (A Traditional Approach)

Every project is unique, and there are times when an owner hires an architect and a contractor separately. That’s why we pride ourselves on quality craftsmanship and a solid reputation for getting the job done right and on schedule when serving as a general contractor.

Construction Management

A construction management (CM) approach means the Owner has a knowledgeable adviser that facilitates the construction of the project. As an owner, you need a partner you can trust. That’s Trumbull-Nelson. We explore every option and provide you with solutions that drive efficiency and constructability.


Design-Build is when the architect and the builder are “under the same roof.” That means single-source responsibility, a tailored and experienced team, and ultimately, the best value possible. At Trumbull-Nelson we focus on teamwork, open communication and collaboration.

Here is a downloadable PDF which expands upon these three approaches and how Trumbull-Nelson can help you choose the best approach for your construction project.
