Design Build Delivery
In addition to traditional design/bid/build method of delivery, we have successfully participated with architects and contractors on a wide variety of design/build projects. The design/build approach allows for:

  • Integration of current construction costing, means, and methods to be incorporated into the structural design prior to the completion of the design phase.
  • Coordination between the various trades during the design phase instead of during the construction phase thus minimizing construction delays and extra construction costs.

Construction Materials & Methods
We have extensive design experience with various construction materials and methods allowing us to use the appropriate materials and methods based on the project's requirements to provide for cost effective construction while allowing for the construction timeline to be streamlined.

Construction materials utilized in our designs:

  • Reinforced Concrete: Cast-in-Place, Tilt-Up, Post-Tensioned, Prestressed
  • Structural Steel
  • Masonry
  • Wood/Timber: Sawn, Manufactured Woods, Engineered Wood Components
  • Light-gauge Metal Framing
