design engineering

Design engineering is the fastest growing method of project delivery in the country. It’s not only popular among owners but is also becoming the method of choice for developers, contractors and design professionals. Besides being cost effective, design engineering creates a teamwork environment in which all parties work together to ensure success. This results in a higher level of quality and workmanship, a faster turnaround time, a more acute attention to detail and a lower risk of error.

We aim to exceed our customer’s expectations by maximizing the value of our prefabricated outputs on all projects while minimizing cost, waste, and time delays. Determining our lean construction strategy starts on day one. From an operational standpoint, lean construction is a key ingredient to our success with clients as well as our workforce. Our commitment to continuous improvement is a testament to our experience in this area of our business and the construction industry alike. With our multiple prefabrication sites, we have the capability to assemble project components, either completely or partially offsite. This offsite manufacturing process promotes a consistent quality for construction projects. Allowing us to finish projects more quickly and efficiently for our clients.

benefits of electrical prefabrication

  • Safety: By embracing prefabrication, more labor is expended in a controlled environment, rather than on jobsites where there is inherently a higher level of risk. Prefabrication also reduces the amount of tradespeople required on a jobsite, supporting social distancing.
  • Increased Installation Efficiency: Electrical assemblies are built to exact specifications, so once they are prefabricated and delivered on-site, they simply need to be connected to the electrical supply to start working, greatly increasing efficiency. This also limits lost time retrieving forgotten tools and materials since most of the work is already complete.
  • Less Material Handling: Prefabrication eliminates unnecessary material handling on the job site.
  • Reduced Labor Costs: By performing repetitive installations your team requires less time, saving you labor costs.
  • Faster Turnaround Time: With finalized plans, equipment can be prefabricated before the building is even built, which can shorten the project timeline.
  • Higher Quality: Eliminating the negative impact of weather by prefabricating in a controlled environment allows for higher quality output.
