Contrary to a design-bid-build approach, design-build is based on a single point of responsibility contract in order to minimize risks for the project owner and streamline the delivery schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases of a project.
A design-build approach typically generates significant savings. We favor the involvement of our experts from the start of the planning and design phase and work in step with the designer to offer guidance regarding the choice of materials, dimensions of primary components, connection details, coating systems to prevent rust, erection methods, prerequisites to the production of shop drawings, i.e. all factors that can impact costs and deadlines. This multidisciplinary team approach fosters an environment that is conducive to design innovations and optimization as all aspects of the project execution process are taken into consideration.
