DESIGN-ASSIST

Design-Assist is a strategy offered by Miller-Davis Company that can be selectively applied to a variety of projects. With design-assist, we assess a project for particularly challenging aspects of the work that are uniquely critical to project success. A subcontractor that specializes in that type of work is then engaged early in the project to provide unique insight that helps manage the risks associated with the specialty work it performs. This integrated approach leverages the strengths and experience of these key subcontractors to develop a unique solution to completing a challenging project on schedule and under budget.

By engaging key subcontractors early, they can provide insight into the project budget and schedule, logistics, long-lead items and construction sequencing and phasing. This early coordination yields a higher quality, schedule-responsive project.

The teamwork that comes from Miller-Davis, the architect and the design-assist partners working together in the early phases of a project helps provide timely and cost-effective solutions that are aligned with the established aesthetic and performance goals of the project.
