Vendor Partners

DMK Development is a full-service general contractor focusing on healthcare construction and the senior housing market. In this highly specialized area of the building industry, DMK is an authority, with a unique depth of understanding in both healthcare operations and construction practices. Our collaborative, streamlined approach ensures projects are completed on time, according to plan and within budget.

From idea to execution, DMK develops and continually updates project scope and schedules, administers subcontracts, manages vendor relationships and provides on-site construction management through all phases of a project. Leveraging technology in the field allows our superintendents and crews to be agile in responding to any changes, delays and accelerated deadlines.

DMK maintains a Two‐Week Look‐Ahead schedule to better navigate a project from site work to closeout. The Two-Week Look-Ahead is used in conjunction with the Master Schedule to ensure consistency throughout a project. It is reviewed in weekly on‐site subcontractor meetings and distributed to the project team.

DMK also closely monitors project budgets, making updates as necessary and identifying alternatives to provide the client with flexibility and the most cost-effective options.


DMK partners with skilled subcontractors across all construction-related disciplines, from architects to engineers to plumbers, electricians and HVAC. If you have a proven track record and experience in healthcare construction, we would love to work with you on our future senior housing projects.

All DMK projects adhere to a specific set of guidelines to promote maximum bidding coverage and achieve the best market rates. Our policies cover new jobs and refurbishment jobs, scope sizes and how quotes relate to established targets based on current and historical pricing.

When working with new vendor partners, we require an initial pre-bid meeting. Subsequent communication may take place via phone or technology platforms including iSQFT.

While one of DMK’s priorities is to keep costs down, our primary focus is ensuring the highest quality outcome for our clients. We won’t choose the lowest bid if the expected results will not meet our standards.

We treat our subcontractors as collaborators and part of our team. We negotiate fair contract terms and always pay on time. We strive to develop long-term relationships with our subcontractors, using their services on multiple projects as needed and approved by the client.
