Design-assist is a project delivery method in which the construction team is engaged by the owner to collaborate with the architect or engineer during the design phase. It is intended to reduce the cost and time for construction, improve constructability, and add value. Design-assist is part of the recent trend in delivery methods aimed at improving collaboration and teamwork to the traditional design and construction methods.
Our Design-assist team combines hands-on field implementation engineering and trades knowledge with state-of-the-art Computer-Aided Design (CAD) capabilities, and the latest in Building Information Modeling (BIM). Over the years we’ve also evolved a specialized mechanical Design-assist service that includes bid and specification, Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP), value engineering, building systems integration, energy retrofits, sustainability and LEED consultation, and BIM.
