THE DESIGN BUILD PROCESS
By consistently looking out for our client’s best interest we are able to provide the best value for our clients with our design build services.
These principles are at the heart of our design build process, and we believe it distinguishes us in the industry. It allows us to be innovative while focusing on effective and meaningful solutions. Our experience in the industry and commitment to the client’s best interest ensures that we are able to manage a project rather than react to it.
The Right Team
Creating great design begins with creating the right team of design build consultants with a foundation of an open and honest partnership.
With BDB providing the right blend of talents and chemistry, along with the framework to allow decisions to be made in a timely fashion… you can be assured of a successful project with the customer in the heart of the design and construction process.
BDB provides value by combining design and construction expertise with total project accountability.
BDB is unique in that its project managers and superintendents are experienced in the office as well as the field and are very experienced in working side by side with the designers and clients from design conception. By collaborating efforts and consolidating project responsibilities, we are able to interweave processes and eliminate time lost while remaining in sync with your budget.
A comprehensive and responsible budget is crucial to the project’s success.
We don’t simply consider the cost of construction and design, but also the on-going maintenance (long after the project is complete). While managing the budget, the entire project team will participate in establishing goals and priorities, which will then be translated into a series of detailed and system-specific budgets. The end result is multi-disciplined professionals working towards a common goal to complete the project on time and within budget.
The project schedule is the foundation of our entire design build process.
The detailed Critical Path Method (CPM) schedule encompasses the design, construction, and approval elements of a project. This schedule is thoroughly reviewed with the customer to ensure each party understands the process and is aware of the tasks that they will be responsible for. Our scheduling expertise enables us to provide our customers with the highest quality product in the fastest, most economic manner.
BDB’s quality assurance program is based on one simple concept: Do it right the first time.
BDB utilizes a formal value design process to ensure each element of the project is thoroughly researched and evaluated so the customer receives the most appropriate design for the project at the lowest possible cost. We always evaluate the functional, operational and maintenance implications of all design issues before recommending a specific design. Our value-engineering process focuses on leveraging the knowledge of the entire team to review building design alternatives, with detailed follow-through on site as the project is built.
