We believe in collaboration and communication. The Design-Assist Project Delivery methodology turns the traditional process into an innovative process rooted in early engagement and teamwork. The days of construction teams working in isolation or creating adversarial relationships are long gone. We work as a team, ideally including the owner, architect, general contractor, structural engineer, steel fabricator, steel detailer, and steel erector.
An effective design-assist team operates with open communication, respect, and a free exchange of information to be successful. This approach helps resolve design issues in the early design phase of a project instead of in the field where the stakes of time and cost are much higher. The desired result is to have fewer change orders, RFIs, and other issues with the plans and specifications.
Our design and engineering resources provide our clients with flexible and efficient services that result in high-quality outcomes. Understanding our client's objectives and desired outcomes is the key to effective design. Being involved early in the design phase means we can finalize more details upfront and coordinate the work more efficiently. This enables us to incorporate all project components in the initial design and planning stage to avoid changes and variations later in the project.
