Qualifications and Experience
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.
Overall, A5 Des+Con is built with a very highly qualified team that will bring clients a satisfaction guarantee on all projects. It is our goal to serve and build a long lasting relationship with all of our clients and particularly, if given the opportunity, earning their respect and trust through honest, reliable and professional services.
A5 Des+Con prides itself on our ability to locate and enlist quality subcontractors, consultants, environmentalists, vendors, suppliers and others that provide quality work and services, promote home town economies, and practice ethical business values. We always welcome the opportunity to bring new, enthusiastic and qualified team members. As we select new team members, our goal is to secure the highest quality local labor and materials. In doing so, we utilize our pre-qualification process and make every effort to employ local subcontractors, tradesmen, and suppliers when they are available. In this manner we are actively supporting local businesses first and foremost and contributing to the local economy.
A5 Des+Con is fortunate in having a unique team of individuals with special skills, unique contacts, experience and knowledge that enables the team to utilize several design consultants, environmental abatement firms, subcontractors, vendors and long standing relationships with people in the construction industry that greatly benefit all projects.
