Designed And Built With Purpose.
Design–build is a specialty at Beacon Marshall. It represents the majority of what we do. That’s not to say we don’t work closely with outside architects, but with our in-house design capabilities, we have designed, planned and built a wide variety of projects – large and small, for owners and companies throughout the United States.
Our “Total Concept Approach”
Beacon Marshall was built on the foundation of a “total concept approach”. This approach teams the contractor with the developer to provide you with speed, cost efficiency and excellent design/build concepts. The result? Complete developer satisfaction.
What Makes Us Different, Makes Us Better.
What makes design/build so attractive to owners is the fact that a design/build contract is sole-source responsibility. The design/build firm enters into a single contract with the owner to provide both design and construction services.
A Single Contract Changes Everything.
With one design/build entity, the roles of designer and constructor are integrated. And one entity drives one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion – streamlining project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design/build team. This transforms the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance that fosters collaboration and teamwork. United from the onset of the project, an integrated team readily works to successfully complete a project faster, more cost effectively, and with optimized project quality.
At Beacon Marshall, we will not let a client make a mistake in the design or construction of a new facility. In short, design/build is a lot more economical for developers. Projects are completed in a shorter period of time, many times under budget, and clients have a single source of responsibility with our firm. Every one of our clients want to build facilities that are more efficient – that’s the reason they call Beacon Marshall Companies. We have the same philosophy.
CHALLENGES/SOLUTION – Manufacturing – Blair Rubber
- A large steel delivery was scheduled in 3 weeks when an environmental issue arose with client’s site.
- This was scheduled to be the second project addition – doubling size of the plant without stopping production or truck traffic.
- Canadian ownership in the US – international laws of commerce were in play
- Provided the site and developed the pad and foundation ready to accept steel in a new city from the one originally planned.
- Coordinated a traffic pattern for construction vehicles separate from production shipping and receiving.
- Unified construction and international lawyers to work together toward a common goal.
