Carter Mechanical Design/Build Solutions, Malvern, PA
Carter Mechanical offers complete design/build solutions for all commercial and light industrial projects related to HVAC and plumbing.
We take a different approach to your project. We create a single point of accountability while integrating the main elements of the project, which include the design, budget, and scope-of-work involved including the selections management.
Let us take the weight off your shoulders of your design/build project so you can focus on what matters to you.
The Importance of HVAC Design/build Solutions
There are plenty of reasons why going with a design/build option is better than a traditional project delivery system.
One Point of Contact and Accountability
With a design/build solution, the HVAC architecture, engineering, and construction are all under one contract. That means the design/build firm is responsible for the entire design/build process and there is less room for financial risk.
More Accurate Costs and Estimates
A design/build team works closely with its clients; therefore, conceptualizing the project is more accurate. And, according to the Design/build Institute of America, a design/build solution costs at the very least 4.5 percent less than Construction Management (CM) and could be up to 6 percent less than Design/Bid/Build (DBB.) So, there’s no question that a design/build option is more cost-effective and time-efficient than a traditional project delivery system.
Provides an Overall Higher Value Engineering Strategy
When both the design and construction teams are working together the entire project (its systems, materials, and methods) is more focused on the scope-of-work more efficiently and accurately managed. Hence, the operating expenses can be more easily evaluated against the capital costs to optimize the life cycle costs.
Higher Quality Enhancements
A single HVAC and plumbing design/build team will provide you with higher quality than you would receive if you had to depend on several different contractors and architects who often have conflicting approaches. The design/build approach eliminates the revolving blame game that often accompanies the use of multiple companies for one project.
More Effective Timelines
Since a design/build solution is controlled from one point of contact, the construction processes can be overlapped while eliminating wasted time for such things as bidding periods and redesign times. One point of contact eliminates long lead times for purchases, because they can be made early during the design phase. That’s why going with an HVAC and plumbing design/build solution will significantly reduce the duration of the project.
