While Cochran is not a contractor we do work with contractors as a design consultant for design build projects. Some clients may prefer the traditional, design/bid/build method, Cochran has tailored our Design consultant services to accommodate those clients who want the single point of responsibility the design/build approach offers. Design/Build is an increasingly popular method of delivery for construction projects. The owner of the land or building only has to manage one contract with a single point of responsibility with the Contractor leading the process. During the project evolution, the design consultant (Cochran) and a Contractor will work together from the inception of the project and provide unified project recommendations as a team to fit the project’s schedule and budget.
Cochran’s in-house engineering, architecture, and construction administration capability makes us the ideal Design consulting partner for a design/build project, and we’ve been successful in a wide variety of projects. You won’t be dealing with multiple consulting and testing firms on a design/build project. You’ll be dealing with the Contractor you selected and experienced members of the Cochran design team.
