DESIGN/BUILD

ICON does more than manage construction projects. ICON has developed a team to discuss options and program requirements, to identify property, budgets, funding options, and to develop an overall strategy for how to execute a building program. Our team includes some of the best architectural and engineering firms. And our collaborative approach ensures excellent design, prudent budgets and timely delivery.

 

  • ICON excels at challenging projects, whether faced with a tight budget, a difficult site, a compressed schedule, or a unique program & design. We succeed because our approach works.
  • We engage the owner, design professionals and our management team to work as a single group, partnered to communicate and collaborate.
  • Valid budgets and accurate, detailed conceptual estimates are prepared from the earliest concepts and updated regularly as the planning progresses.
  • Our schedule management is unparalleled with detailed breakdowns of every step from first sketches to final clean-up.
  • Our project accounting is accurate, open, well documented and always competitive. Project cost information is published online allowing access to up to the minute status of the work.
  • Our commitment to quality is unwavering, both in the craftsmanship we demand at the site and in the conduct of our services, every day, on every project.

 

 
BENEFITS OF THE DESIGN-BUILD DELIVERY APPROACH:
  • Provides a “turn key” approach to project development.
  • Owner chooses his design/construction team through a Best Value solicitation process.
  • Owner is shielded from cross claims between contractor and design team.
  • Owner is shielded from the cross claims of multiple prime contractors.
  • D/B Firm accepts risk for total project cost by issuing a GMP for design and construction of the project.
  • Subcontractors are prequalified, resulting in a higher quality workforce.
  • Owner requires less staff involvement than the traditional multiple prime approach.
