IES is the right contractor to provide quality design-build services beginning with our value engineering from the very inception of your project. Our proven method of design-build construction gets the job done right, in less time and money over traditional construction methods.

Benefits for our customers:

  • Accelerated Design
  • Value Engineering
  • Parallel Construction - shorter construction time
  • Expert Project Coordination - with owner, architect and trades
  • Project Cost Control
  • Prompt delivery of long lead-time equipment and materials
  • Certainty of Construction Cost
  • Promotes Team Concept – our design and build team works closely with the owner and related disciplines to assure overall constructability and the most cost effective construction solutions.
  • Accelerated Project Delivery - Functions such as estimating, value engineering and even construction can start during the design phase.

Engineering expertise is of great value to our clients when we are given the responsibility as your Design-Build Mechanical Contractor. IES takes on single-source responsibility for the design, construction and installation of the project's mechanical systems, from concept through completion. Design-Build is particularly appropriate on fast track construction and renovation projects. When a schedule is compressed, a single accountable source for design and installation is the only way to be certain your critical date will be met responsibly.

IES offers in-house engineers and CAD professionals who work in partnership with designers, architects, and owner representatives on each project.  Our engineering technologies insure a sound design, operating efficiency, code compliance and comprehensive documentation.

Our Design-Build team is a highly skilled and well qualified engineering group who performs comprehensive mechanical design services on either a single source design-build basis or as a design-assist partner. The team’s early involvement from project conception provides solutions tailored to project schedules, construction coordination and budget parameters. Design-assist can be as simple as design review, consultation, construction and completion of detailed design project documents.

IES in-house registered Professional Engineers approach project design in these ways:

Our engineering skill and experience allows us to create a cost benefit design that maximizes the value of the owner's investment while meeting or exceeding project operational and budgetary requirements.

Quality Design: All systems are designed by in-house professional engineers who specialize in mechanical systems construction. Their experience on varied projects produces high quality creative designs that maximize the value of construction costs.

Decreased Design and Construction Time: Since design drawings are also our shop drawings, the design, coordination and construction detailing are all completed at the same time. Equipment can be ordered and construction can begin before final design drawings are complete.

IES Design-Build methods assist property owners:

Design-Build project methodology is best suited for projects requiring quick turnaround time, are complex in nature and both initial and lifetime costs of the systems are significant considerations.

Because IES is involved in the design phase of the project, Design-Build can provide significant cost savings over traditional plan and spec projects. The earlier costs and savings are taken into consideration, the greater the impact on the bottom line. Upfront costs for the initial design are not required as IES includes our engineering in the project.

Single source of responsibility - Because engineer, designer and builder are the same company, the owner does not have to look to multiple sources for responsibility.

IES engineering expertise allows us to specialize in fast track, Design-Build projects
