Engineer - Build
StructureCraft has a unique and value-laden business model. We call our primary delivery method Engineer-Build, because engineering and building are so closely linked in the way we do things. This draws on the historical model of “Master-Builder”, where as engineers who love architecture and good design, we take responsibility for building the structures we engineer. This is especially important in the field of timber construction, where the structure is featured and exposed. Our Engineer-Build model brings responsibility for all the steps of engineering and construction under one roof, to a company that has significant experience taking on this responsibility. Engineer-Build synthesizes and smooths out the building process.
With our long experience in prefabrication and integration with other disciplines, Engineer-Build adds significant value to the client, architect, and general contractor:
Creative, Buildable Solutions: Holistic, experienced design from the concept phase to create practical solutions that consider architectural and constructability constraints
EOR: We join the team early, as the Engineer of Record for the Structure offering sensible, economical design.
Early Trade Coordination: Early BIM coordination with other trades, and advice on integration of our scope with other systems (e.g. cladding, MEP)
Early Price Commitment: As the builder, we commit to pricing early in the design process, providing early risk transferal and minimal change orders.
Schedule Savings: Schedule reduction from single party responsibility, minimized inefficiencies, no engineering duplication, and early procurement.
Global Supply Chain: We bring access to major suppliers worldwide, ensuring quality, and competitive material sourcing.
