PLAN SPEC

Archer Mechanical has the experience needed for your plan-spec project. We examine the plans and specifications, determine the lowest possible cost, and then build to your design. We work closely with the general contractor, architect and engineer teams to anticipate any issues and avoid change orders by providing cost effective solutions to your construction projects.

DESIGN-ASSIST

Working as a collective group from the start not only allows for the best end result, but also for the quickest, most cost effective and efficient construction process.

In the Design-Assist delivery method; Archer Mechanical works closely on and off-line with the design team and all consultants. Archer aids in coordination of systems and completion of the design. We analyze the Mechanical systems and methods comparing both price and performance. Our teams collaborate with owners, architects and construction managers to design mechanical systems that accomplish multiple construction objectives while reducing building costs to deliver the maximum value on your dollars spent.

  • Cost control.
  • Detailed construction schedules.
  • Provide a faster project delivery, and a more reliable mechanical system.
  • The project becomes a collaborative effort allowing for early starts on construction and early procurement of critical materials.
  • Increased construction and design efficiency.
  • Trade collaboration, alleviating construction delays and ensuring on time delivery.

DESIGN-BUILD

The Design-build delivery method can streamline budgets and schedules, provide single-source accountability with minimal change orders, ultimately delivering a high-value product for the owner.

  • Cost control.
  • Provide a single point of accountability.
  • Identify your objectives, manage contractual details, and evaluate options to maximize energy efficiency, sustainability and costs.
  • Provide a faster project delivery, and a more reliable mechanical system.
  • The project becomes a collaborative effort allowing for early starts on construction and early procurement of critical materials.
  • Construction costs are locked in by eliminating the change orders.

Target Value Design

Target Value Design (TVD) is delivery method that consists of designing a project to the customers predetermined budget requirements, rather than establishing costs after the design is completed. As a design-assist and design-build contractor, Archer Mechanical regularly provides input towards design, sustainability and best used practices to maintain project budgets. With the Target Value Design method you can be certain that your “expected costs” do not exceed your “budgeted costs”.

GMP Development

When an expedited schedule, early product procurement and fast track project delivery are the critical factors to the success of your projects, a GMP format may be in your best interests. At Archer Mechanical we understand the importance of preconstruction services, early procurement, expedited schedule and establishing a definitive cost estimate that reflects a complete project scope. A guaranteed maximum price allows us to predetermine costs, critical paths and complete your project earlier than the standard construction process.
