This method allows FSI the ability to overlap the design and construction process; allowing us the ability to deliver projects more timely and efficiently than traditional methods.

Q: Why should you choose this method?

A: When multiple companies are tasked with design, engineering and construction, there is more inefficiency in the process; including wasted time, money and resources. Design-build is an agile method to complete a construction project, meaning that when issues arise we are able to rapidly respond and change direction, if need be. Wasted time can cost our customers money, but because we are design-builders, we are able eliminate process waste without reducing the function of the final product. Additionally, we are able to design with constructability in mind.
