We Practice Honesty
A5 Des+Con has encompassed a great amount of experience in providing timely and accurate budget estimates. The expertise in estimating derives from the use of advanced estimating software, continuous knowledge of the current local market and historic data to assure accuracy. Through our experience in estimating, we can ensure that estimating probable design/construction costs are in line with the actual construction cost of any project, limiting the need for unanticipated change orders and resulting in a budget that will remain unaffected and generating savings to the customer.
We Create Fun
A5 Des+Con is a leader in working with both public and private sector clients under the traditional Design-Bid-Build (DBB), Construction Manager at Risk (CM@R) and Design-Build (DB) delivery methods.
DB is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the DB team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. DB is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility. A5 Des + Con specializes in design build methology.
A CM@R is typically selected at the same time that the design team is selected, and works side by side with the design team throughout the design process, typically known as Pre-Construction Services. Once design is nearly complete, the CM@R gives the project owner a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). Once the GMP is accepted and construction documents are completed, construction begins. The intent is that no change orders be allowed unless the owner wishes to modify the scope of work and/or add scope to the project. It is A5 Des+Con‘s position and intent to uphold our GMP until the project is completed with no change orders.
