Design Build Assist

design_build.jpgOur approach to pre-construction service emphasizes the involvement and knowledge of the project support personnel to maximize the overall efficiency of the project.

We take an active role in pre-construction activities because they are a vital function of getting maximum value from your project investment.

We will implement the following steps to enhance design and construction:

Conceptual Budget 
Working from preliminary documents, an initial budget is established utilizing an extensive data bank of historical costs provided from Dynalectric’s project background expertise and local supplier pricing. After completion, this estimate is then continually refined and expanded as the design process proceeds.

Design Sequencing
Working with all participants, we identify critical construction schedule items affecting the electrical installation. Once these items are identified, we work with others to establish a sequence of design activities to ensure that the construction schedule can proceed without design delays.

Value Engineering
Through the input of on-site and off-site personnel, we work to identify design alternatives, which may favorably impact cost and schedule. We anticipate that our project manager, general superintendent, and estimator will be involved in value engineering.

Schedule Development
In cooperation with other project participants, we work to develop a critical path schedule that meets the scheduling needs of a project.

Purchase of Materials
We purchase electrical equipment or materials and assure timely delivery. This affords a project the full advantages of purchasing at the best available prices while still allowing for material or equipment to be on-site whenever necessary.

Project Coordination Meetings
We attend regularly scheduled meetings during the pre-construction phase in order to ensure coordination of activities.

Pre-Construction Activities
We have a dedicated team with in-house CAD system capabilities. Field installation drawings are developed and coordinated with other trades showing actual dimensioned conduit routes and equipment locations. These CAD drawings increase field productivity, which in turn improves the overall project schedule. The CAD installation drawings then become the as-built drawings at the end of the project.

Dynalectric has successfully completed many design-build and design-assist projects and believes in the success of this type of procurement. This team approach improves communication and forces all involved to work for the same common goals.
