We are construction experts and don't expect you to be. Our Construction Management service provides you with a single point of contact who has your best interest in mind for the duration of the project. This includes general contracting, architecting services, site selection, permitting, value engineering, project planning, costing, contract administration and more. You have a single number to call from start to finish.



TriCon has a combined 60 years of custom home experience and most of that is right here in east Tennessee. As a Construction Management company, TriCon is able to "turn key" your custom home. We deal with construction planning, architecture, design, costing, scheduling, permitting, communication management and sub contracting. You are assigned a single point of contact that is a home building expert that will collaborate and consult with you during the entire process.

Whether you have just an idea of what you want to build or a full set of plans, we start with a sit down meeting to figure out how best to approach your specific construction project. Your project is assigned a Construction Manager who will be your point of contact for the duration of the project. They will work with you to determine the best approach to complete the planning. They will assign the remainder of the construction team as required to best serve the needs of your project.


TriCon has successfully completed many projects using the Design-Build methodology. In a Design-Build relationship, the owner, architect, engineers, and contractor collectively work together to maintain the integrity of the owner’s needs and desires while considering budgets and schedules. This team oriented approach allows us to establish a project’s cost very early on and helps the team control potential overruns and project scope creep. Design-Build construction gives an owner greater project control by working through preliminary design phases, cost analysis, document completion, construction, and project closeout via a single point of contact.

Raymond McBride and TriCon Builders recently completed a remodeling and clinical expansion project for our offices at Ear, Nose & Throat Associates in Johnson City. They did an outstanding job relocating our Allergy Department, building out three additional exam rooms, and adding physician office space. We were very impressed with how they were able to complete construction, on-time and on-budget, without any significant impact on our on-going daily operations all within a busy medical / surgical practice. Great work and great folks to work with, we highly recommend Raymond McBride and TriCon Builders!
