Design-Build brings together a partnership of the owner, architects, general contractors, and trades. As part of the design-build team, BMI engineers analyze the owner’s requirements, reviewing concepts and systems on a price/performance benefit. Realistic project budgets can be established early in the process. Design-Build speeds up the entire construction process as we proceed seamlessly from design into construction with known project costs. Design-Build is the best way to avoid constant change orders, project escalation, and cost overruns.
Integrated Project Delivery
Integrated Project Delivery is a concept that has been integrated into all areas of BMI’s capabilities. As a design-assist and design-build contractor, we regularly participate in the collaborative design and planning processes, allowing us to figure out the best way to accommodate the unique needs of each project. BMI’s project managers are unique in that they manage the project’s mechanical scope of work from start to finish, playing an integral role in the design, cost control, construction, commissioning and handover.
In the Design-Assist method of delivering work, BMI works closely with your design and construction team to clarify the operational benefits of the project. We will analyze alternates on a price/performance basis. Our engineer’s knowledge of installation, maintenance, and long-term operating costs will help deliver the maximum value for dollars spent. When appropriate, we’ll recommend using alternative designs, different materials, and more efficient installation methods.
BMI brings decades of experience to construction projects that mandate a fixed-price bid on a detailed set of construction documents. We examine the plans and specifications, determine the lowest possible cost, and then build exactly what was designed. By working closely with the architect and engineering teams, our project managers anticipate issues and work to avoid change orders and cost overruns.
