Comparison Chart of Delivery Methods: Design-Build vs Design-Bid-BuildOur in-house engineers and construction professionals bring decades of experience to help you design your project from the ground-up or improve your existing design, all the while providing real time feedback on performance, costs, and schedule considerations and impact.


When we lead design-build projects, we take responsibility for the design and meeting your performance and budget requirements.  From conception through execution, we consider your project goals and collaborate with other trades to help ensure delivery.  Some benefits of our design-build delivery method include:

  • Reduced total project cost and faster delivery than the traditional design-bid-build method
  • Less change orders since we are responsible for a complete design upfront
  • Selection of the best possible means and methods based on real-world cost data and constructability considerations
  • Streamlined communication by eliminating time spent coordinating separate design and construction contracts 


If you already have an existing design or partial design, we can work in a design-assist capacity. In a design-assist capacity, our team of engineers and construction professionals can complete your design or work alongside your engineer to recommend design or material modifications that will streamline execution and reduce costs.

Our design-assist capabilities include:

  • Completion of an existing design as the engineer of record
  • Material recommendations and selections to improve field installation efficiency
  • Prefabrication considerations to reduce field labor
  • Routing of piping and ducting systems based on single line schematics and P&IDs
  • Constructability consulting alongside the design team
  • Schedule and cost feedback and recommendations as the design progresses
