The Austin Company offers a variety of approaches in implementing a project. These generally can be classified into either a “design-bid-construct” or “design-build” project approach. In addition, Austin offers The Austin Method®, which combines the advantages of “design-bid-construct” and “design-build” approaches into a competitive-bid, cost-effective and accelerated schedule project implementation.
Step 1A - Conceptual Design
A four-to-six week effort to understand and evaluate the building project. The product is a report that includes conceptual drawings, narrative description, milestone schedule and budget price. The client can then evaluate this building option and may proceed to Step 1B.
Step 1B - Preliminary Design & Engineering
During this 10-to-12 week phase, Austin works closely with hospital staff to refine and develop the conceptual plans and specifications to produce a set of preliminary building documents. Interior design and engineering work is developed during this step. The preliminary design and engineering documents will be the basis for the guaranteed contract price and project schedule.
