Design Build Services:
Design-build is a method where the contractor assumes responsibility for all phases of construction. This includes all architectural design, planning, site preparation, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and construction. Using the design-build method, the client only has one point of contact and one contract for their project.
Acting as the design-builder Colarelli Construction would choose architecture and engineering firms that are experienced with related projects. Once we have put together a design team we would work with them to create a plan for your building or space that is cost effective and meets your needs. Allowing the contractor to work with the design team from the very beginning offers many benefits: cost savings, cost effective, enhanced communication, and precise schedule creation.
Project Team Selection
As your design-builder we will select architectural and engineering firms we feel are the best fit for your project. In addition like all of our projects you will be paired with a project manager who will create estimates and develop your budget and a superintendent who will manage onsite construction activity.
Being thoroughly involved with the design process will allow us to formulate a more accurate budget for your project.
We will develop a schedule that includes all non-construction related activities as well as construction activity to give you an accurate timeline for your project’s completion. We will consider permitting requirements, lead times, as well as design decision making and approval processes. In the end you will have a comprehensive schedule that will get you a finished product in the fastest time possible.
Modeling & Sensitivity Analysis
A key component to aiding to the design process is the evaluation of different building systems. We will analyze each system within the facility or to be included within the facility early on in the design process. Our objective is to develop an assessment that allows us to recommend the most appropriate system selection for items such as the buildings foundation, roof, or mechanical arrangements.
