Design Assist Program
Our Design Assist program includes assistance in the development of project details and product specifications, utilizing industry standard product performance data and relevant industry engineering standards. We would attend, and contribute to the design team meetings through the development of construction issue documents. Our primary focus would be to maintain both the constructability and adherence to the cost parameters of all elements within our scope of work. With this in mind our proposal is based on shop drawings being generated concurrently with the design development process in order to allow for submission to coincide with the final approved design.
