The design-build approach is a modern-day project delivery system that effectively collaborates the designers and contractors into one entity. This method overcomes the classic adversarial relationship between the design and contractor. CES has developed a strong and effective design-build business model, in which the contribution of designers come from their knowledge and experience in design and construction. Our understanding of construction methods, permitting, scheduling, and budgeting allows us to design projects, wile reducing cost and schedules. This cradle to grave understanding of a project development has allowed our staff to develop phased schedules for large scale projects in which we effectively perform design and construction operations in parallel. These schedule compressions allows for faster delivery times and a reduction in overall project cost.
