Imperien Launches to Offer Design-Build Construction Management Services to Northern Illinois Commercial and Industrial Clients

Flexible Services Allow Clients to Focus on Running Their Business

October 23rd, 2018

ROCKFORD, IL – Colin Simpson, P.E., launched Imperien LLC to help companies across Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin expand existing or build new facilities. Imperien’s construction management services offer alternative delivery methods, such as design-build, to allow clients to focus on their businesses while Imperien represents solely their interests throughout the design phase and construction of their facilities.

Imperien is uniquely qualified to serve the construction needs of small- and medium-sized businesses due to its size and depth of capabilities. Unencumbered by high overhead costs, Imperien can offer a higher-level of service and a more diverse range of contract options, reducing risk, time and cost for its clients.

For example, traditional construction contracts are typically a “design-bid-build” model; this commonly used model creates a separation between the design team and the construction team, often adding cost and time to projects. The separation of design and construction services means clients are managing two separate service providers that may have opposing interests. Imperien solves this problem by managing both the design and construction, protecting solely the interests of the client. The alternative models may be design-build, construction manager-as-agent, or construction manager-at-risk contracts. While managing the process from design through construction, these contracts offer customized solutions not currently offered to small- and medium-sized companies.

Since 2004, Colin Simpson has worked on behalf of owners to execute developments in commercial, industrial and municipal infrastructure construction, featuring both private and publicly funded projects:

$36 Million luxury apartment development in Downers Grove, IL
$25 Million reconstruction of the City of Monroe, WI’s waste-water treatment facility
$32 Million hangar at the Chicago Rockford International Airport
$22 Million terminal expansion at the Chicago Rockford International Airport

Colin’s experience working on behalf of municipal governments has made him extremely effective at advocating on behalf of his clients with government agencies while ensuring projects meet code requirements. Colin maintains close relationships with the public works community, serving as Director at Large for the American Public Works Association (APWA) Illinois Chapter, Northwest Branch since 2014.

Colin founded Imperien based on the core values of:

Protecting our clients’ interests
Quality construction
Partnering with our clients and vendors
