R.W. Mercer General Contracting

Building to meet the Highest Standards

At R.W. Mercer Company, we have built our success on providing construction services and solutions that meet the highest standards and exceed the expectations of our customers. This performance-driven approach extends to our network of qualified subcontractors and suppliers whose focus is to meet your project’s scope with exceptional workmanship.

Great Lakes Facility

We are a full service construction company, providing all facets necessary for the successful completion of a variety of building projects. Even after many projects, we still look forward to the sense of pride and accomplishment from exceeding our customer’s expectations. When you select Mercer as your construction provider, you can depend on:

  • Delivery systems and services to handle a variety of construction projects from start to finish.
  • The ability to meet demanding fast-track schedules year round.
  • An open review of costs and bids to assure you of top quality and value.
  • The latest technology to deliver reduced costs and tight control over schedules.
  • Regular project reviews for your input and approval.
  • The ability to self-perform many trades to ensure performance and quality.
  • A guarantee of our work.


In this method, an architect is retained by the Owner and completes the design process prior to our involvement. We use the drawings and specifications prepared by the architect as a basis for the bid we submit to the Owner. While we have the ability to self-perform many of the services needed to construct the project, we will also hire and supervise a team of subcontractors and suppliers to complete the work.

Construction Management At-Risk

R.W. Mercer Company provides advisory management and assistance to the Owner prior to construction in this delivery method. We will offer schedule, budget and constructability advice during the project planning and design phases. We then assume the risk for construction performance or the equivalent of a general contractor by subletting the construction work to trade contractors and typically guarantee completion of the project for a fixed, negotiated price or percentage of cost.


R.W. Mercer Company teams up with an architect in this delivery method to provide design and construction services under one contract. This method yields improved project quality by having the architect and contractor working together from concept to completion. It can also result in additional cost savings to the Owner as value engineering and constructability review are utilized continuously throughout the project duration.
