Allison-Smith was an innovator in the design build [LINK]approach in the 1960’s and that tradition continues today. Our staff has experience in the consulting engineering business as well as construction, which enhances our design build capabilities. We have the capability to develop realistic budgets with surprising detail based on conceptual drawings and scope outlines. By articulating to the engineer the information needed to maintain a fast track schedule, we are able to maintain the construction schedule, remove unnecessary pressure from the designer and meet important material delivery milestones. Value engineering analysis becomes part of the design/estimating process. Estimating is computerized, which results in better budgets, faster estimates, and more efficient value engineering comparisons.
