A project delivery system used in the construction industry. It is a method to deliver a project in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity known as the design–builder or design–build contractor.

In the Design-Build service, there are various steps from project procurement to project completion:

  1. MEETING: The management team will schedule a meeting with the project owners and managers to determine and review project expectations.
  2. PLANNING: After full review of timeline, resources, budget, project goals, the engineering team meets to develop accurate and detailed plans.
  3. RFP:  A Request for Proposal is issued, also known as the procurement process. The Design and Build procurement includes the process of securing bids with a focus on timeliness, acceptable quality, financial parameters, minimizing and mitigating risk, effective communication and administration, and most importantly, ensuring clients’ satisfaction by fully understanding the project objectives.
  4. SELECTION PROCESS:  The owner then shortlists up to three bids, with a full consideration of each teams’ technical proposal and price proposal.  Each project owner has an individualized scoring system based on price, quality and timeline. Each RFP will be weighed on these scoring parameters and then a final choice is made.  Once chosen, a public announcement will be issued of the chosen design-build team who was awarded the contract.
  5. KICK-OFF MEETING:  The awarded contract team’s partners and engineers will meet internally to discuss and review all project plans. After which a meeting with the project owner and managers is scheduled to go over any changes and review all project expectations.
  6. SCHEDULE DETERMINED:  After all the above meetings, a project schedule is set into builder units, for each portion of the project, enabling the project to begin construction before the entire project plan schedule is finalized and approved.

A Cofferdam is an enclosure built within, or in pairs across, a body of water and constructed to allow the enclosed area to be pumped out.This pumping creates a dry work environment for the major work to proceed. Enclosed coffers are commonly used for construction and repair of oil platforms, bridge piers and other support structures built within or over water. These cofferdams are usually welded steel structures, with components consisting of sheet piles, wales, and cross braces. Such structures are typically dismantled after the ultimate work is completed.

H-Pile Installation

These structural beams are used extensively for deep foundation applications to add stiffness and support to sheet pile walls and foundations. H-Piles are steel beams that are driven into the earth by pile driving equipment.

Highway Bridges

A Highway Bridge is built for the passage of highway vehicles and pedestrians. Highway bridges are designed for heavy rolling loads of up to 0.8 meganewtons (80,000 tons of force), crowds of people, and other forces. Girders are most often used in building steel highway bridges.

Railroad Bridges

Railroad bridges can trace their roots back to the industry’s beginnings in the mid-19th century.  Prior to the development of iron, and later steel, early bridges were built of either stone or wood.  Even today it remains the largest bridge of its type and still carries regular freight and passenger trains to this day, a testament to the strength and longevity of not only its stone construction but also the masons. Railroad Bridge construction provides a permanent road having a line of rails fixed to ties and laid on a roadbed and providing a track for cars or equipment drawn by locomotives or propelled by self-contained motors.

Reinforced Concrete Box Culverts

A culvert is a structure that allows water to flow under a road, railroad, trail, or similar obstruction from one side to the other side. Typically embedded so as to be surrounded by soil, a culvert may be made from a pipe, reinforced concrete or other material.

Retaining Walls / Sound Barrier Walls

A retaining wall is a structure that holds or retains soil behind it. There are many types of materials that can be used to create retaining walls like concrete blocks, poured concrete, treated timbers, rocks or boulders. Some are easy to use, others have a shorter life span, but all can retain soil.

Steel Erection

Steel erection work includes heavy duty high rise structures, metal buildings and the skeletal core of bridges, office buildings, commercial, retail and industrial structures.  We provide construction, alteration or repair of steel buildings, bridges and other structures, including the installation of metal decking and all planking used during the process of erection.   Our focus when it comes to steel erection is safety, accuracy and productivity on the jobsite.
