In today’s competitive and fast-paced marketplace, Prime Engineering, Inc. realizes that many clients prefer a single-source design-build approach to capital projects.  The design-build approach allows the project to be streamlined and expedited in a more timely manner than the traditional design-bid-build approach.  Design-build can provide the project owner with cost and schedule savings without compromising the quality of the project.  Early interaction between the design professionals and the construction management team, working together with the owner, provides better coordination and control and can help minimize problems during construction.

Design-Build Approach
As a full-service company, Prime Engineering approaches each design-build project with an experienced staff knowledgeable in planning, procurement, construction management, check-out and start-up functions. With Prime providing this single-source responsibility, clients benefit because projects require less internal staff, while the client maintains all control of scope, budget and schedule. With all members of the design-build team working as a single unit, construction can proceed simultaneously with design, which greatly reduces the project schedule. Our project managers focus on coordinating the planning, design and construction management activities, while our subcontractors are able to concentrate on applying the specialized skills and specific knowledge of local conditions assigned in their scopes of work.

To meet project goals, our professionals concentrate on maintaining continuous and complete communications with the client and subcontractors throughout the project. Our reputation for superior communication skills and integrity allows clients to know that Prime will stand behind our commitments and quality of work. Our design-construction process and procedures were established to result in projects that are safe, constructible, functional and maintainable.

Prime Engineering uses an in-house quality assurance program that requires formal, periodic review and analysis of all projects by senior engineers and management. Quality control procedures prescribe the methods of checking all documents at each stage of development, assuring that each is suitable for its intended purpose. Using such a formal quality assurance program, our senior staff is able to identify issues and concerns at the earliest stages, often saving a great deal of time and cost. Prime’s QA program has proven to be the catalyst for high quality, successful projects. High standards in planning and design, coupled with effective construction management and contract close-out, yield an outstanding record of successful design-build projects.
