Are You Interested in working with Vaughn?
An important part of our success is the success of our trade contractor partners. We pride ourselves on proactively managing well organized, safe, and efficient projects that allow you to be successful. We are proud to have been named “General Contractor of the Year” by the Houston Chapter of the American Subcontractors Association numerous times for the respectful and ethical way we treat our trade contractor partners.
One example of how we help you be successful is through our use of an open bidding process, which gives you the opportunity to propose only on the portions of the work you are comfortable performing. You do not need to bid on an entire scope of work that you may not have the staff, materials, or expertise to perform. We make the extra effort to match trade contractor bids to achieve complete bid packages. This is a win-win for you and for our clients, since this approach often provides a better value.
Because many of our projects are extremely complex and require the best talent in their respective specialties of work, the vast majority of our trade contractor selections are made on a “best value” system. We evaluate your firm’s qualifications, your past experience with Vaughn and the project Owner, your safety record, the quality of your performance, the experience and qualifications of your proposed team members, and your price. Our experience has taught us lowest price doesn’t always equate to best value.
We operate a master subcontracting system, which allows us to quickly procure project subcontracts and start work on a project in an expedited manner. We maintain a list of prequalified trade contractors with whom we communicate regularly about upcoming opportunities.

"Vaughn Construction treats their trade partners with high level of professionalism. They go out of their way to foster a team approach with all members of the trade contractor community, from the early pre-construction stages to the final close-out of their projects."
