Interface Consulting’s Buildings & Facilities Expertise
Construction projects for buildings and facilities, whether public or private, constantly face increasing pressures to shorten schedules and lower costs. But as tools such as computer-aided drafting (CAD) and now building information modeling (BIM) have improved the efficiency of such projects, the complexity has increased greatly. This greater complexity, combined with the multi-disciplinary approach necessary for the design, magnifies the need for a thorough, well-coordinated design. This need carries beyond the design phase and into the construction phase.
Even the slightest misstep can expose a project to significant schedule delays and/or cost overruns. These impacts can be caused by issues such as design errors and omissions, unforeseen and differing site conditions, adverse weather, defective materials, labor inefficiencies, or construction defects.
Interface Consulting draws on first-hand experience and expertise in both the design and construction of building and facility projects. This experience spans the entire project lifecycle, including the planning, contract administration (AIA, ConcensusDocs, lump sum, cost plus, etc.), design, construction, and dispute resolution phases.
