Our design-assist approach combines the strengths and expertise of essential trade contractors to develop design and construction documents.
A collaborative approach
We establish a collaborative environment within the design and construction teams, which addresses coordination issues earlier in the process—minimizing delays associated with requests for information and limiting obstacles like Value Engineering and costly change orders.
Design-assist team members’ early participation also allows for the pre-purchase of equipment and identification of long lead time items, which is crucial for projects with accelerated schedules and phased construction.
The design-assist process has a major impact on performance, cost, speed to market, and constructability, which is especially valuable in high-risk, complex jobs.
Design-build for public agencies
Design-build is widely accepted by local, state, and federal agencies. Our team has utilized the design-build model for:
- State agencies
- Colleges and universities
- Municipal corporations
- School districts
- Other political subdivisions
The design-build approach gives public owners project delivery options that are faster and more flexible, with lower costs and fewer risks.
For example, in the State of Ohio, the Ohio House Bill 153 (HB 153) included the first changes in Ohio’s method of public construction in over 134 years. Known as Ohio Construction Reform, these changes alter the method of completing public improvement projects and allow for alternative construction delivery methods. The Ohio Revised Code section 153 (ORC 153) outlines the framework for the design.
