Fully Integrated Design-Build Services

With a national presence and more than 30 years of experience executing infrastructure for clients in the public and private sectors, Woodard & Curran provides an integrated approach to design-build that results in informed, collaborative, and efficient project delivery.

By embedding constructability analysis, operations and maintenance needs, and high-performance design from the outset, we create better results at the right short- and long-term cost. In addition to our experts in scheduling, estimating, logistics, subcontracting, and construction, we have extensive engineering resources and expertise, in-depth regulatory understanding, and best-in-class project management tools that make us uniquely qualified to perform even the most complicated projects.

While we are deeply invested in a collaborative design and construction process that maximizes the value of the project, our highest priority is getting our clients, colleagues, and contractor partners  home safely at the end of the day.

We deliver design-build projects as the prime design-build entity, in a joint venture with a trusted design-build partner, or as a design subconsultant to a trusted design-build contractor.

WHY DESIGN-BUILD?

When you invest in a major capital project, you can’t afford delays, cost overruns, or poor execution. The design-build approach allows you to deal with one team and a single point of contact – improving communications, speeding up timelines, and giving you more control over quality and cost.

With design-build, you get the benefits of constructability, operability, and value engineering throughout the design process. This allows for accelerated construction schedules because work can begin as designs are being produced instead of waiting through an extended bidding process.

Legislation enables most public entities subject to procurement laws to benefit from the design-build approach. We have helped clients implement major infrastructure projects via design-build and construction management that comply with all applicable laws protecting the public interest.

Our O&M team members inform our designs from an operability standpoint, and are a significant educational resource in training your operations staff.
