Our Story

Our goal is simple; every client gets our full attention and our commitment to you lasts well beyond the day we turn over your project. No matter what your needs are or how large the project is, Caliente allows you to focus on your business while we navigate the details. From assisting with the choice of the best project delivery method (Bid-build, Design-build, Construction Manager at Risk), to budget and schedule management strategies, quality control, safety through an effortless close-out; your project is our priority.

Pre-Construction Services

Caliente understands decisions made during planning and design have a lasting impact on projects and our services begin with understanding goals, expectations and implementing value as defined by our clients. We achieve this through accurate cost estimating, value added options analysis, dependable schedule information and development of a guaranteed maximum price (GMP). We review the design documents, identify issues, look for conflicts and resolve in collaboration with the architectural team. Caliente’s pre-construction services marry fact-based information to the design and deliver predictable outcomes with no surprises. We can provide pre-construction services as a “stand alone” service or as the predecessor to management of your construction project.

Construction Manager at Risk (CM@R)

CMAR offers our clients unsurpassed quality, value, flexibility and adaptable solutions to fit every type of project. While architectural and construction services are procured under a separate contract, successful CMAR delivery depends on commitment and extensive participation of the client, architect and contractor throughout the project. The project design is developed through collaboration of all the partners with Caliente focusing the correlation of design, materials, and system options with cost, schedule, availability and function. As the CMAR we provide value and qualifications based subcontractor selection. As we transition into the construction phase, the collaborative process continues with Caliente as the single point of responsibility for successful delivery of your project.

Job Order Contracting (JOC)

Job Order Contracts are about the collaborative relationships we develop with our owners. We essentially become an integral part of our customer’s team, providing flexibility and responsiveness; we efficiently and effectively serve the emergency, critical and everyday needs of their facility customers. We are currently providing construction and design-assist services to various private and public customers under 14 JOC/Task Order service contracts.


Caliente offers our clients a complete package of design and construction services under one contract. Through our strategic alliances with design-build architects and sub-consultants we assemble the right team, take your initial ideas, offer strategies and selections and ultimately deliver a project that achieves your unique requirements faster and more effectively. As your single point contact, we are accountable for providing a seamless transition from design through construction resulting in cost effective, timely and functional projects.

General Contracting

Through the bid-build process, we provide negotiated subcontractor pricing, procurement, schedule direction, budget control and project management. While this method delivers the lowest lump sum cost in the current marketplace, our strong subcontractor base and established relationships result in accurate and competitive pricing without compromising scope, work or quality.


No one does “renovation” better than Caliente; we offer modernization, retrofit and re-purposing of existing facilities and historical renovation. Specializing in occupied buildings, our services are tailored around your facility and whether it means working off hours or phasing your project, we will keep you operational while maintaining safety and security for your staff and the public.
