Design-Build Services

Acella Construction Corporation offers design-build services to those clients who would like a single source to design and construct their project. This approach has been effective for clients who desire to have the project constructed in the most expeditious manner, knowing the final cost and schedule for the project delivery prior to completing the design documents. The design-build approach has proven to be a method to control design costs by one source managing both aspects. Our design-build services include the following:

  • Conducting strategic alignment with talented and reputable design professionals including architects, structural engineers, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, design build subcontractors and other various consultants to collectively provide complete design-build projects.
  • Appointing a team leader for the interaction with the client
  • Preparing a cost estimate and proposal for the design and construction of the project based upon preliminary design criteria and schematic layouts.
  • Maintaining standard design procedures for:
    • ascertaining the program requirements
    • preparing the various levels of design documents
    • code analysis and compliance
    • coordinating the various design disciplines to ensure a well coordinated project
    • construction details for construction
  • Providing a proposal and cost estimate for the project at schematic design levels
  • Managing the construction with the same approach as Construction Management or General Contracting but with the mindset that it is a design-build process
  • Providing one stop shopping for the owner to eliminate dealing with the numerous designers, consultants and contractors.

The Acella team, led by Scott Brash, the project superintendent, and several huge time saving ideas by Anthony Dirubbo, allowed us to complete our 14,200 s/f building on time. I have never worked with a better superintendent than Scott – as he performed miracles on a daily basis. If you are contemplating building a club house, please take the time to call Dave Dirubbo, Acella’s president and make an appointment. You will not be disappointed.
