Project Mind-Meld: Integrating Expertise

An alternative delivery method to traditional design-bid-build is design-build (D-B), a process that requires the design team and builder to work together from a project’s start to its completion. Since the design team and contractor work simultaneously on the design of the project, the built solution often is more efficient with fewer risks. Owners need to trust the D-B team to successfully move through the complex details.

With more than 16 years of providing D-B engineering and construction administration services on projects ranging from construction value of only a few million dollars to large, $250 million projects, our engineering staff understand how to work with contractors to make D-B projects successful. The range of our D-B services we provide includes:

  • RFP Preparation
  • Civil Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Land Surveying
  • Construction Administration
  • Value Engineering/Constructability Input
