Many clients select the Design-Build construction method because they want a “turn-key” project, with a single firm responsible for both the design and construction. Frequently, the design-builder will provide a guaranteed maximum price to the client for the entire project. IPRM has the resources and expertise to effectively take the lead on Design-Build projects. We have the capability to team with our client’s preferred architect or seek an independent design firm.
Design-Build is also an excellent vehicle for incorporating green building technologies into a project, and/or achieving LEED certification for a new facility. As Design-Builder, IPRM has managed the documentation and third-party mechanical system commissioning required for obtaining LEED Silver certification for a major project.
- Construction costs for contracted scope are guaranteed at the onset of construction,
eliminating hidden costs
- Combined design systems process with the construction process “fast tracks” elements
of construction to accelerate completion
- Excellent method to incorporate Green technology into a project
“The City set out with a goal of having the project achieve LEED Certified status. We accomplished that goal easily and were a few points shy of Silver Certification. IPRM’s knowledge of the LEED system made it possible for the City to incorporate a few more green initiatives to achieve a Silver LEED rating and still remain on schedule and under budget. IPRM’s intelligent and interactive management style was prevalent from the Design Team to the Onsite General throughout the project. The end product that IPRM left me with is one that I am very proud to be a part of.”
