IDEA has single source responsibility for both Design and Construction of the project.
IDEA provides complete Design Services such as Programming, Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration. During the design phase IDEA provides construction expertise such as cost control, scheduling, Value Engineering, Constructability and Life Cycle Analysis.
When documents are sufficiently complete, IDEA solicits Competitive Sealed Proposals from Trade Contractors for the work and proposes a cost reimbursable Guaranteed Maximum Price for the construction phase.
IDEA constructs the project as General Contractor, taking responsibility for safety, quality, cost and schedule.
Project may or may not be fast tracked whereby the Construction Phase commences before the Design Phase is complete.
