A contractor with design-build capabilities typically has a licensed Professional Engineer on staff and covers multiple disciplines within the “building construction” umbrella, such as mechanical, electrical, civil, piping and plumbing, etc.

Tesco Controls says design-build “embraces real collaboration and healthy compromise throughout the entire project delivery cycle.”

Revere, also a controls contractor with design-build offerings, tallied the data and found that design-build is “a project delivery system that can shorten project schedules by up to 30%.”

RJ Mechanical has found that their in-house design-build services – which include engineering, design and drafting – allows them to “manage the process much more efficiently”

Successful design-build firms tap their engineering talent and their controls expertise in combination to deliver robust solutions for an entire building controls job.
