What is Design-Build? - Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity (the design-builder) forges a single contract with the project owner to provide both architectural/engineering (A/E) design services and construction services. Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.
Communications infrastructure is often overlooked or simply tacked onto the electrical contract as an afterthought. Information Technology & communications infrastructure is the core of so many of the systems in a finished project that a professional design and installation is critical. Computers, building management, telephone, CCTV, alarm, environmental and access control are all increasingly IP based systems which rely on the communications infrastructure to work. Retrofitting after the fact can lead to unplanned expenses, project delays and unhappy customers.
Our unique approach to building IT infrastructure puts the system designers, engineers and builders all on one team. The design engineering is created to the exact specifications then built out by our technology construction specialists. This means on-budget, headache free projects that run smoothly with no surprises.
Building technology systems is a complex undertaking comprising thousands of parts, details and nuances that all need to be coordinated to achieve a perfectly working system. A critical factor in building Technology Infrastructure is the transfer of knowledge from the owner's vision to the IT design engineers down to the actual system builders. This transfer of information is often the critical point of failure between highly successful project implementations and ones that do not meet expectations and run over budget.
Tech Alliance's proprietary design/build approach connects the owners directly to the system builders by placing the, IT consultants, system designers and builders on one connected team.
Perfectly engineered on-budget projects that conform precisely to ownership's vision and needs, built by IT construction specialists.
