Our Design Build engagement team promotes an easily customizable approach to your project. Corporate sponsors and Project Managers will work closely with our design and construction teams to procure, schedule and construct your custom project, while limiting your exposure to change orders, material delays and cost escalation.
Our expertise is in our experts - in both design and construction. Dragon only hires dual ticketed technicians for this division. This unique strategy facilitates two groups of experts (design and construction) working in sync - and in-house - to reduce your scope creep, budget costs, and scheduling.
Dragon's Corporate Sponsor will work with you to determine whether your project would benefit from the Design Build approach:
We’re known for the speed, agility and preparedness of our people. Everyone contributes something special to our team and we cross-mentor each other in safety, quality and technical expertise. Dragon is COR Certified and our safety record speaks to the strong culture we’ve built.
With traditional construction projects, the opportunities for communication breakdowns are abundant. This is only natural when more than one company works on the same project—even if both parties are committed to keeping their counterpart in the loop. The design team has to correspond with the contractors, and possibly the subcontractors, and vice versa, which will inevitably lead to delays. When you choose our design build methodology, Dragon simply and effectively streamlines communication through one single project manager. We prevent needless delays and ensure your project is completed on time.
There is less chance of conflict throughout with the design build methodology. Dragon will handle everything under one roof where accountability and responsibilities have been established. We offer a shared vision that the whole project team is aware of and will work towards. We will take ownership of the entire project, meaning you don’t have to deal with conflicts of interest.
In a traditional engineer-then-build project methodology, accountability isn’t as clear cut, it is shared. This leads to discrepancies in the overall project costs. For example, engineering may predict a certain cost or completion date, but the construction team can end up quoting almost double the cost, or time, that was suggested. There is little collaboration between the two parties in the early stages of the project. For us, it’s simple, we take full accountability for everything we do. This means we have the means and motivation to pay attention to small things that could impact your scope, schedule and budget.
