SAIC provides DesignBuildSM services that maximize the potential for project success in cost, schedule, and quality.
SAIC's DesignBuild name is symbolically significant, bringing the words "design" and "build" together as one to represent the seamless union of design and construction professionals who clearly understand each other's roles and work toward a common purpose.
Eighty percent of the decisions that influence successful delivery of a project are made during design development. Our DesignBuild operation maintains co-located, full-time design and construction professionals who provide leadership for DesignBuild projects. Repetitively working in this collaborative environment builds relationships, eliminates barriers of inefficient information exchange, and creates a common language between architectural, engineering, estimating, procurement, construction, contracts, and other personnel. This results in time efficiencies, development of second and third tier understanding of project goals and objectives, and firmly establishes our DesignBuild culture.
Our clients benefit from project challenges being identified and solved early in the project delivery process. On the critical path of every project you will find engineering and design, work we perform with in-house resources. Additionally, the engagement of our construction professionals in this process assures that cost and schedule is optimized. Together, this provides us the greatest opportunity to influence project success by lowering client risk profile and improving the project timeline. Working diligently to achieve timely and economic projects, SAIC DesignBuild delivers solutions, not just projects, to our clients.
SAIC understands the elements required for successful project delivery. We manage all facets of project delivery, from preconstruction services through startup and commissioning. Our expertise includes:
