Design / Build Services
The Design Build methodology of contracting enables clients to expedite design and fast track construction projects worldwide. Successful projects are the result of a continuous dialog with clients through out all phases of the design build process.

Spectrum has successfully utilized its extensive experience with U.S. Government agencies. As evidenced with it’s previous track record with The U.S. Department of State. Spectrum firmly believes in the KISS (Keep It Simple Spectrum) methodology. This approach enhances the intent of our client’s Design Build requirements.

Spectrum does not have layers of overhead in its management team in contrast to other companies. During the design build process, our project managers will have first hand knowledge of any issues that may be raised by the client during the contract implementation. This management style has historically been proven effective. The response time to any administrative, technical, design and/or construction issue will be addressed and resolved in an expeditious manner. This reduces the total professional time required to implement and perform a task order. The major benefit is lower cost and decreased design and administrative time, and enabling the fast track process.

The Design Build Team for each project includes a Project Manager, Architectual, Mechanical, Electrical, Structural engineers along with a Site Superintendent. However, the Design Build team composition will be coordinated with the requirements set forth in the client’s Statement of Work. This team is experienced in estimating, purchasing, logistical project implementation, site mobilization and scheduling.
The project manager will have the authority to address and negotiate all contract matters with the client.
