At CB&E we have experience of working in either a plan and specs or design-build environment. Our passion for finding the best value for our clients doesn’t change as a result of the contract type. We are committed to delivering a project that is both on budget and also on time.
In a plan and specs format we don’t just take off what we see and price the work according to the drawings and specifications. We work outside the box and look for inconsistencies and missing items. We highlight those items for you in our comments and clarifications so that you are not surprised later by a potential design flaw or an omitted item. We feel we are being hired for our expertise in building and that is what we deliver.
When we are able to work in a design-build environment we are able to put our talents and experience to work for you from the very beginning of the project. We will assume the responsibility for the design from the civil through the architectural/structural and the MEP design. Our process is totally transparent. We show you all the bids and work together making the selections based on your expectations and our experience. During schematic design phase, we will provide you with a Guaranteed Maximum Price. The GMP locks in the cost for you and is our guarantee to deliver the project on budget.
