projects thus allowing the customer to stay focused on their core business needs. The BOND team will design, build and commission any central plant project including chillers, boilers, CHP (combustion turbine, steam turbine, or reciprocating engine) while the customer stays focused on their job. Our team understands the complexity of these projects. We have in-depth knowledge


NECESSARY STEPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN-BUILD APPROACH


of the operations, engineering design, utility interconnections, environmental & local permitting, regulatory issues, fuel sourcing, construction and commissioning. The DB project delivery model is best suited for customers who want a single point of contact for the project. The BOND approach is a disciplined process to develop, design and deliver projects on an expedited delivery schedule. This will allow the operational savings to be realized much earlier than alternative project delivery methods. The BOND process ensures consistent oversight and careful monitoring of quality, cost and, schedule. ENGINEERING BOND has worked with the premier engineering firms in this field and can solicit the design services competitively or work with the Owner’s incumbent engineer. Our approach is to select the right engineering team based on their current workload, project location and any specialized requirements of the Owner or interconnecting utility company. EQUIPMENT BOND has a solid working relationship with the major equipment suppliers. Our team will work with the owner to obtain a competitive price from their pre-selected equipment suppliers or

conduct a competitive solicitation process to ensure client satisfaction. SUBCONTRACTORS BOND maintains an extensive list of prequalified subcontractors. This ensures a competitive solicitation using construction partners that have the bandwidth to support the work and live up to the BOND standards of quality and performance. BOND will also work with the Owner to prequalify bidders from their pool of trusted subcontractors. Using this project delivery method, BOND will provide the Owner with market competitive construction management services. In this case, BOND is responsible for managing all aspects of detail design and construction while ensuring the Owner’s goals in terms of quality, scope, cost and schedule are met. For the customer, this process will: 1. Reduce project risk 2. Deliver predictable results 3. Allow the customer to stay focused on their core business Projects can be completed open book or with a GMP. As shown on the chart of typical cost centers, the sole-sourced component of the work is relatively small. This factor will be countered with the savings associated with a faster project delivery.
