DESIGN ASSIST

Innovation in construction delivery is enhanced with a collaborative, teamwork approach. Design Assist creates this environment with advantages such as reduced schedule, improved constructability, reduced cost, and added value. Under traditional delivery methods, the General Contractor doesn’t see the plans and specifications until the Architect and Engineer have completed their work and the project is prepared for bids. From this point forward, suggestions for improvements bring added costs and schedule delays. Utilizing Design Assist engages the entire design and construction teams including key subcontractors as active participants in developing and delivering the best possible version for the Owner.

BUILDING RESILIENCE

Resilient Design Institute defines resilient design as “the intentional design of buildings, landscapes, communities, and regions in response to vulnerabilities to disaster and disruption of normal life.”

Throughout the world, we have learned that building to code is no longer enough. This is why we are excited to share our unique seismic protection system that prevents beam and column damage and offers repairability via replacement of a single component: the bottom fuse plate. This patented, innovative technology creates structures with higher resiliency, simplified installation, improved schedule, long span layouts, braced-free steel frames, and cost savings to the overall project.
