Design-Build Procurement & Project Management
A Host of Value-Added Benefits
The advantages of design-build procurement are many, but only if the firm providing this high level of program management has the capability to carry out the complex responsibilities required. KEH & Associates’ deep experience in this area maximizes the value-added benefits of this process, fostering client confidence while helping ensure that the advantages of design-build delivery, lower costs, faster schedule and reduced risk, are realized from procurement through construction.
With its ability to assume singular responsibility, KEH & Associates puts projects on the right track from the start. Together with the client, our team establishes the project definition, manages the procurement of a highly qualified design-build contractor and provides the oversight of the project for the client from contract signing through start-up and final completion. Risk management is enhanced, with performance aspects of cost, schedule, and quality clearly defined and managed; change orders due to “errors and omissions” are virtually eliminated.
Our staff of professionals brings real world expertise in design-build project delivery and a thorough understanding of the procurement laws and enabling legislation associated with selection of design-build services in the public sector. We help ensure a fair and open competitive environment during the procurement period allowing the public to be confident in the client’s management of the selection process.
The efficiencies realized through KEH’s management of the design-build project delivery process significantly reduce the client’s administrative burden. By not having to invest time and money in coordinating and arbitrating between separate design and construction contracts, the client is free to focus on project delivery and public outreach.
