A bid approach is one where the owner selects a certain number of General Contractors to price a set of contract documents, specifications, and drawings that has been completely designed. The General Contractors invite a list of subcontractors and supply vendors to price their scope of work. This approach puts the owner and contractor at greater risk.
Negotiated / Design Build approach is a TEAM approach, where the owner, contractor, and architect/engineer work together to design and build a project that satisfies the needs of the owner. This TEAM approach focuses on solving problems with the owner's best interest in mind.
A.D.E Builders is Mission Minded
A.D.E. Builders inc. Has a heart for missions and faith based programs. A.D.E. Has had the opportunity to participate in funding construction of several churches in burkina faso west africa with engage burkina through john and betty arnold.
ADE worked with us during the architectural design phase of Hamilton Mill UMC new worship center to give input and feedback when requested as to constructability and likely financial impact of desires such as adding a kitchen or not, an elevator etc. which was a great help in making these early decisions. This was done even though we did not yet have a formal contract with them, just a letter of understanding that we were going to use ADE. They have been outstanding to work with in resolving issues and working with the HMUMC and the architect during construction. They have identified savings where possible and responded to our request for changes during construction in a “can do” attitude. I highly recommend this company.

After a career spanning over 40 years and serving companies like Union Carbide Corporation, The Coca-Cola Company, and Siemens, in roles such as Maintenance Technician, Plant Engineer, Senior Program Manager, and Global Business Development Manager, I found the ultimate contractor after retiring.
Serving as a volunteer Owner’s Project Manager, I had the distinct pleasure of working with ADE Builders, Inc., on a renovation/repurposing project for a non-profit, institutional organization. In a project filled with challenges, I quickly learned I could depend on ADE for solution and to share my passion for excellence. I would definitely TRUST ADE Builders to deliver a solution to any issue that arises, that fully satisfies my needs. ADE Builders Inc., sits on the top of my list of contractors I have had the pleasure of working with.
