Contact Mike Ehlert to discuss construction services for your mechanical systems.

Construction Services / Design Build​

We use our extensive knowledge and expertise to design and plan projects that meet or exceed your expectations, while maintaining high quality standards at an affordable cost.

We utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) to view potential clashes and eliminate problems before construction begins, which reduces costs and shortens the project schedule.

We pride ourselves on delivering innovation through engineering. Our Design Build team can design and install the system you need. Communication, planning, and execution drive our team to success. Proudly serving Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Dubuque, and the surrounding Eastern Iowa areas.

We can be your single source resource for design build construction projects. Whether it’s mechanical systems for new construction or working with you to solve a problem in an existing building or facility, we bring our years of experience and knowledge to every project.

We continually look for value engineering items that are mutually beneficial. It’s in the best of interest of both parties to share the savings. We have great working relationships with suppliers, manufacturers and other contractors, which means we can partner with them to solve even the most challenging projects.

Your mechanical systems design is mapped out virtually before they are built in our shops and field. This drives efficiencies in our shop fabrication and field installation to get your project off the ground faster. Our Design Build team combines expert tradespeople, designers, and technical support staff with state-of-the-art 3D modeling and coordination technology to provide you a better product sooner in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Dubuque, and the surrounding Eastern Iowa areas.

Benefits of Design Build

Budget Management

Communicating the cost implications of design decisions ensures that the owner plays a key role in arriving at the final project price. Once the scope of work has been finalized, the project costs are clearly defined and controlled.

Better Communication

Specific design and construction details are being developed throughout the entire process and the focus stays on owner “value”. The communication benefits of working with a design professional and a construction expert at the same time ensures that potential problems are discovered before the project starts.

Quicker Project Completion

Design build construction projects can be completed in a shorter amount of time because: Bid time is reduced, scheduling for the project can begin before design is finalized, potential construction problems are uncovered early, and enhanced communication keeps everything moving.

Quality Control

Design build helps to remove uncertainties that may arise in material and construction specifications. Since the designer, engineer and builder are from the same firm, the focus remains on protecting the clients interest.
