THe ADI Advantage

The ADI Advantage is something that sets Advanced Development Inc. apart from the competition. Included in the ADI Advantage is our ability to do design-build. Design-build is our competitive advantage over the industry and is a special construction project delivery method. Using this method our qualified general contractors are directly responsible for both the total project design and the actual construction of the project. We create teams for completing design-build projects, and utilize our contractors as the team leaders. Chosen architects and engineers can be in a subcontracted role or as team members.


Our design-build approach sets us apart from our competitors because we create teams that work together building great relationships. This generates a highly visible process for better communication and flexibility for our clients, while meeting and exceeding the quality and performance specifications of the project.  Depending on the details of the project we have the capacity and abilities to complete different phases of construction. We will always search qualified third parties or subcontractors for prices and project estimates to guarantee the lowest total cost.

Construction management

We feel that managing our projects and our daily construction activities on site is very important for a successful project. Because of this we strongly incorporate construction management methods into every project. Construction management is another project delivery method that uses a construction manager or superintendent to facilitate the design and construction of a project.


The construction manager or superintendent will organize and manage the workforce, materials, and equipment needed to accomplish the goals and needs of the architect and client. Our construction management philosophy is based on open communication between all parties, leadership on and off the work sites, and the ability to manage the construction teams and the daily activities of the workforce. Construction management helps make the planning, design, and construction of our projects possible.
