The most important element of any construction project is
its design. Construction design quality is the single most
important factor in determining a project's life-cycle cost,
which includes the initial cost of construction, plus the
ongoing cost for operations and maintenance.
Design is the initial step in the
construction process. It dictates everything that follows.
The size and layout of the facility; type of construction
materials; capacity of mechanical and electrical systems;
energy efficiency; and other factors are all impacted by the
design of a project.
Estimated by the
federal government to be 1% or less of a building cost,
design services represent only a small percentage of the
construction budget, and a far smaller percentage of life
cycle cost. It makes sound economic sense to ensure your
consulting engineer has the experience and qualifications
needed to deliver a high-quality design.
