DESIGN / BUILD is a process whereby the contractor leads both the design and construction teams. This approach offers several advantages to the owner: oA single source of responsibility for the owner, established and maintained throughout the project from inception to completion.oA construction team involved in the design process to monitor the cost implications of various design decisions.Selection of materials providing better control to ensure compliance with previously set budgets and schedules.Simplified construction details worked out in advance to provide a smoother flow of construction.In many cases, portions of the work are contracted prior to completion of the design. When time is critical, the fast track approach may be utilized. This approach allows expedited construction because portions of the design and construction can be accomplished concurrently, thereby compressing the overall schedule.
Design/Build provides the owner and the design builder with a higher degree of control. This control and single source of responsibility for the owner can prevent conflicts and delays in construction.
IFC is experienced in the design/build approach. In this approach, AS becomes "part of the team" along with architect and owner at a very early stage of a project's development. During design development, the construction manager offers conceptual estimating and value engineering services. This is the stage of a project's development where the most money can be saved. The construction manager evaluates various systems early in the design process to ensure compliance with the owner's time and budget requirements. Following conceptual design, the construction manager monitors the design consultant's progress throughout the completion of the working drawings to ensure the project stays on budget. Where time is of the essence, construction management also lends itself to a fast track approach. Portions of the work can be let prior to the design being completed on the remainder of the project. This facilitates a compressing of the schedule to allow the owner an earlier occupancy date.
IFC warrants its work for twenty full years from the date of substantial completion. Beyond this one year warranty period, we will continue to service the building and perform any work to meet the needs of their customers. No matter how great or small the need, AS's people and/or qualified subcontractors will take care of it. Our customers need only look to us for the solution to their needs.
