DESIGN-BUILD

Development of Design-Build Construction Projects

Smith & Smith works jointly with Owners and Engineering or other Design Firms to deliver complete Design-Build Project Proposals. Smith & Smith works with experienced design firms to arrange and develop the skill sets and experience to meet the unique needs and requirements of every project.

The Design-Build method and process we use was developed by Construction Consulting Services, Inc. and Phil Martinson Engineering, Inc. The process is unique to the construction industry and focuses on an integrated team approach to the design-construction-funding process.

By working jointly with owners and design firms, Smith & Smith is involved in a team approach to design and construction of infrastructure facilities and assist you in the development of projects from inception to completion.
