Why Protrend Arrow Construction (PAC) is right for your Design Build project:

PAC's ability to compress the construction schedule and work collaboratively is key to the design build process. With PAC design build, instead of having several contractors and consultants to deal with, you simply deal with PAC. All design revisions, project feedback, budgeting, permitting, construction issues, change orders, and billing are all routed through Protrend Arrow. Because design and construction are overlapped - the Fast Track construction technique, and because bidding periods and redesign time are eliminated, total design and construction time can be significantly reduced. These timesavings equal lower costs and earlier utilization of the completed facility.

The Construction Industry Institute reports that Design Build costs were 4.5% to 6% lower than other methods as well as 23% to 44% faster than other methods

    With PAC design build construction services, early knowledge of firm costs as guaranteed construction costs are known far earlier than in the other delivery systems. While still in the design stage, PAC is simultaneously estimating construction costs and can accurately conceptualize the complete project.

    Because PAC has long established working relationships with the construction industries finest sub contractors, PAC is able to offer our clients the qualified, pre-screened sub contractors who work safely, responsibily and meet the stringent requirements that PAC sets out for every project and every sub contractor.

    Design and construction personnel, working and communicating as a team, evaluate alternative materials and methods efficiently and accurately. Value engineering and construction synergies are realized when the designers and contractors work as one team under PAC's guidance during the design process.

    With PAC, quality, cost and schedule expectations are clearly defined and appropriately balanced so ndividual risks are managed by the party best positioned to manage the risk. Change orders due to drawing and specification errors are eliminated because the correction of such errors is the responsibility of Protrend Arrow Construction instead of the owner

    Because PAC "answers" to the owner for every thing associated with the project, PAC is highly motivated to ensure the highest of quality. As the owner, your requirements and expectations are documented in performance terms and PAC delivers results accordingly.

      At PAC, the design-build is an integrated and streamlined process, so the Owner's administrative burden is reduced. The Owner is not required to invest time and money coordinating and arbitrating between separate design and construction contracts, but can focus on scope definition and timely decisionmaking. Plus, any design changes during the project do not require a re-bid process.
