PLAN SPEC

Archer Mechanical brings decades of experience to your plan-spec project

Examining the plans and specifications, we determine the lowest possible cost, then build to your design. Working closely with the general contractor, architect, and engineer teams anticipating any issues, avoiding change orders, and providing cost-effective solutions to your construction projects.

Project Delivery Methods

DESIGN-ASSIST

Working as a collective ensures the most cost-effective and efficient construction process.

In the Design-Assist delivery method, we work closely on and off-line with the design team and all consultants, aiding in coordinating systems and completing the design while analyzing mechanical systems and methods comparing price and performance.

  • Cost control.
  • Detailed construction schedules.
  • Provide 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

A Superior Design-Build Delivery Method Streamlines budgets and schedules, provides 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 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

Expected Costs Never Exceed Budgeted Costs

Target Value Design (TVD) is a delivery method consisting of designing a project to the customer’s budget requirements, not 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.

GMP Development

Guaranteed Maximum Price Means Efficiency

An expedited schedule, early product procurement, and fast-track project delivery are all critical factors to the success of your projects.  We understand the importance of preconstruction services, early procurement, expedited schedule, and establishing a definitive cost estimate that reflects a complete project scope. A GMP allows us to predetermine costs, critical paths and complete your project earlier than the standard construction process.
