Design-Assist/Design-Build

Proven Experience Executing Clients' Deliverables

For decades, State Electric has partnered with owners, construction managers, general contractors, facility managers, and utility and power plant operators on design-assist/design-build projects. We can provide a broad spectrum of design deliverables that range from constructability reviews, all the way to 100% stamped design documents. Whether it’s a design-assist/design-build approach, our in-house team provides the support necessary to meet the requirements of a project, to ensure the most cost-effective solutions are utilized. We work hand-in-hand with you to make sure budgets are created to the highest degree of accuracy and detail.

A key component of our design-assist/design-build approach is an on-going estimating effort. As designs change, we will identify and flag items that will affect final pricing, so you can make informed financial decisions, relative to your budgeting parameters. We pride ourselves on our ability to establish budgets that hold throughout the design-development phases of a project. Participating in the pre-construction process allows us to fully understand the scope of work, critical budget constraints, and condensed schedule requirements. Complex and demanding projects are best served by our early design participation. This allows us to put our proactive and problem-solving approach to work, assuring the project can be completed in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our design-assist/design-build team is comprised of knowledgeable professionals proficient in BIM technologies, allowing us to offer innovative design solutions and alternatives. Whether you are looking for a design-assist partner to work with your engineer of record (EOR) or a design-build contractor where we have all engineering responsibility, we can help you become more efficient and cost-effective on your next construction project.
