Our expertise creatively combines civil-horizontal construction, vertical elements, and landscape construction to create a variety of memorable destinations for public enjoyment. Valley Rain is known for exceptional quality and high-value solutions achieved through collaborative relationships from design through construction.
A Passion for the Outdoors: Valley Rain is all about providing facilities that get people outdoors, hiking, biking, or playing in parks. Our work prioritizes pedestrian outdoor activity over time spent in vehicles or indoors. Our projects are a legacy to the future making Arizona a healthier place.
Experts in Alternative Project Delivery Methods.
Valley Rain builds park and open space projects using Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR), Design-Build and Job Order Contracting (JOC) methods. Through these Alternative Project Delivery Methods (APDM), we are able lead teams and provide significant contributions during the design and planning phase. Many firms merely respond to engineered plans causing backtracking and rework. We offer solutions ahead of design and concurrent assistance as plans are developed. This results in better solutions, better budget control, faster delivery, and less cost to significantly increase value and provide world-class quality.

Valley Rain completed many large, complicated parks projects for the City of Phoenix while I served as the City Engineer. They always provided great service, were very innovative and creative in solving problems, and delivered outstanding results. Given the opportunity, I would select them to complete any project without reservations.

Valley Rain demonstrated exemplary professionalism and workmanship in the Gateway Access Area project. … Our mission was to deliver a product to the citizens that showed not only careful use of tax dollars but also stewardship of the preserve, itself. Valley Rain always offered options that were economical as well as conservative in approach. I really cannot say enough good things about their commitment to the high quality and success of the project.
