Design-Build Engineers Help Manage Risk and Improve Results with Construction Oversight

Designing a new process or piece of equipment can often seem like the most challenging part of a design-build (D/B) project for food and beverage manufacturers. However, it may come as a surprise to some project owners that the construction phase of a project typically contains the greatest potential for risk, due to the various and complex moving parts involved. Working with an engineer that provides design-build services in addition to site management and construction oversight services can minimize some of these risks and keep projects on schedule.

Jason Jacobe, a project manager on our Industrial Manufacturing Process team, recently published an article in the March/April issue of Food Manufacturing that details the ways in which using your design engineer to perform construction oversight on design-build projects can ensure that a project sticks to its schedule and budget while reducing the overall risk associated with a project.

All projects have their own unique requirements, so choosing the right partner as your D/B engineer is crucial for achieving the type of success we’ve seen on many of our projects. Jason lays out some guidance for making sure you’re selecting a firm that you’ll feel comfortable working with as your main point of contact throughout the process.
