Our Unique Design-Build System Will Exceed Your Expectations
When it comes to your intrusion or fire alarm system, details matter. And that’s where our design-build approach really sets WCFI apart.
So what exactly does “design-build” mean, and what are the benefits and advantages to you? We’re glad you asked!
Unmatched Expertise Through Every Step of the Process
Our design-build approach provides you with a number of important advantages that help ensure a successful project.
Design-Build (D-B) is a project delivery system that includes planning, design and implementation from a single provider.
With WCFI, D-B means that you are partnered with the right team, right from the start. So your project is far more likely to be be completed successfully — on time and on budget.
Five Key Advantages of the WCFI Design-Build Process
Single Point of Responsibility
With both design and implementation in the hands of a single company, with design-build there is a single point of responsibility for quality, cost, and project management. We are able to deliver a successful project by fulfilling multiple parallel objectives, including aesthetic and functional system quality, budget adherence and on-schedule completion. With our design-build approach, you do not need to spend time and effort coordinating between the designer and builder.
Faster Project Completion
Because design and implementation are coordinated by the same team, and because bidding periods and redesign are eliminated, total design and implementation time can be significantly reduced. With the WCFI design-build approach, implementation can begin earlier. The resulting time savings translates into lower costs and earlier utilization of your system.
Because WCFI’s system designers and implementation teams are under the same roof, quality control and project implementation are tightly coordinated. The system designers are fully involved in the implementation process every step of the way, ensuring highly accurate, smooth and timely project completion.
Early and Accurate Knowledge of Costs
Since WCFI is responsible for both design and implementation, we can very accurately conceptualize the completed project. This means you won’t receive any unpleasant cost increase surprises as the project progresses.
Improved Risk Management
Using our design-build proess, WCFI is able to clearly identify and mitigate potential risks that might arise during project implementation. Change orders due to “errors and omissions” are virtually eliminated, because as the design-builder WCFI has responsibility for developing drawings and specifications as well as implementing the highest quality system.
