Design Build

Our team of design build professionals brings industry depth and knowledge to help lead the project through critical decision processes. Our preconstruction design development managers develop concepts into construction documents. Working with all design disciplines, the project's definition, cost elements and key challenges are defined.

Design Build Approach
In our approach to design build, we select an engineer for a specific project and place them under contract as part of our design build team. In some circumstances, the mechanical engineer is selected as a member of the design team. These decisions include our construction manager partner. Our goal is to have an architect and an engineering team that is best suited to the specific project. We then work with the owner to design and construct the project to meet their specific goals.

Integrating Preconstruction Services
Our emphasis on preconstruction services makes us uniquely qualified in the design build project approach. Our team's early integration with the design process assures timely input on key decisions. We provide optimal delivery of the design elements by developing the detail documents in a fast-track method. We begin the detail design from flow diagrams and P & IDs. As engineering progresses, we bring refined elements into the detailed design. For more:
Design Assist Project Delivery

We have actively participated in many design build projects with great success.

GMP Development
We understand the importance of establishing definitive cost estimates that reflect a complete project scope. The initial estimate is a tool to help us define the overall project resources needed and to help with our early construction planning. The GMP is developed in these document deliverables:

100%  Programming – Initial budget
  50%  Design Development Documents – Initial GMP
  50%  Construction Documents – Final GMP
