Sustainable Engineering Solutions LLC

SES is an engineering company located in Pittsburgh that was
founded under the principles of Design-Build Project Delivery.

SES recognized,
in an era when costs are spiraling, quality is questionable, and change orders
are one of the first things considered when constructing a project,
it’s time to do things differently!

On Budget

Design-Build projects are 1.9% less expensive than Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) on a cost per square foot basis and 0.3% less than Design-Bid-Build (DBB). Design-Build projects see 2.4% less cost growth than CMR and 3.8% less than DBB.

On Time

Delivery schedule is the most influencing factor for owners when selecting a project delivery method. From design through final completion, Design-Build (DB) projects are delivered 61% faster than Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) and 102% faster than Design-Bid-Build (DBB).

Limited Change Orders

Few owners realize that the battle lines against higher costs and change orders are NOT established after the design is produced and the project is being bid. The fight for lower cost is won much earlier in selecting the project delivery method. DB provides the ability to develop strong communication and understanding of what the owner values. A better plan results in minimal changes as the project progresses.

What if

you could ensure the delivery of a construction project on-budget, with a streamlined schedule, at the highest level of quality?

The Design-Build delivery model provides customers with performance certainty in project delivery.

How it works :

In Design-Build project delivery, the owner manages only one contract, providing single-point accountability. The designer and contractor work together from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the owner’s schedule and budget. Any changes are addressed by the entire team, leading to collaborative problem-solving and innovation.

Design-build the fastest growing, most popular delivery system in the nation.

Design-build will account for nearly half of all construction spending by 2021 with spending increasing 18% over the 2018–2021 period.
