"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - Steve Jobs



Design-Build - A Better Way to Improve Your Building


We agree that "design is how it works." It is why we recommend the design-build process for your next office expansion, build-out, or remodel.

Through our firm's early involvement in the planning stages of a project and our knowledge of cost-efficient construction methods and handicap (ADA) code compliance, we are able to guide the design and construction to completion in a timely and competitive manner.

Since 1977, we have specialized in this type of construction and are able to bring value engineering ideas to your project as well. The design-build process (as opposed to hiring an architect yourself, going through the design concept, having them put drawings together, and then putting those drawings out to bid), saves you time and, therefore, money. It's a win-win.

It's no secret that Riggins Construction & Management, Inc. specializes in design-build tenant improvements and new building construction, especially since Tom Riggins has a construction engineering degree from Cal Poly. Our approach to construction from an engineering background allows us to streamline the entire process for you, our client.

RBC Transport Dynamics
RBC Transport Dynamics

Riggins Construction & Management, Inc. is proud to announce the completion of the design-build RBC Transport Dynamics project right in the heart of Orange County, California. The goal for this project was to create a cohesive facility on this two-building, two-shift manufacturing campus. The caveat is that the work had to be performed while maintaining their production levels at 100%.

The two buildings were unified and upgraded and the once-vacant dirt lot north of the building was transformed to allow fluid access around the facility. A new storm water retention system and bio swale filters rain water runoff before it enters the main catch basin, leading to the ocean.

The project is one of our proudest moments of coordination. Please click here to see our PDF.
