Design-Build is rapidly becoming the preferred method of project delivery. Design-Build can reduce total project cost and schedule. Design-Build can also result in better project quality if clients select the right design-build team that understands the importance of both good design which creates systems with high constructability, operability, maintainability and reliability, and cost control which assures budget and schedule control. Contractors often focus on constructability and cost control only. Some contractors deliberately bid projects low to win and work to earn profits through high cost change orders. Integrated Technologies, Inc. (ITI) understands how to manage the tension between great design and cost/schedule control. ITI also brings a team of proven and preferred suppliers and teaming partners to our all of our design-build projects.
Design-Build projects still require a well-defined basis of design and project requirements. Effective design-build project delivery follows process planning, project feasibility studies, and conceptual and preliminary engineering and design. Preliminary engineering can often be limited in scope if the conceptual engineering and design is complete; however, clients should be aware that, when they are seeking competitive bids for design-build projects, less detail will mean more variation in the offers received from bidders. ITI often delivers design-build projects after completion of conceptual design on a negotiated bid basis, and this can further shorten the project schedule by eliminating a prolonged procurement process. ITI specializes in the design and build of wet process systems. Wet process systems include surface finishing process lines (i.e. plating, anodizing, phosphating, pickling, cleaning, etc.), water treatment systems, wastewater treatment and recycling systems, and wet process ventilation systems.
