Deep Architectural Expertise

Our architectural team can work with the client before and throughout the development to validate their vision and work efficiently to make it a reality, supported by extensive on-the-field experience in construction and long-term maintenance. Years of design-build experience have molded a unique culture at DDD. Our approach to design services gives clients the added value of an integrated practice with an in-depth understanding of the cost, schedule and life cycle implications of their design recommendations. Design and construction teams work hand in hand under one roof, with owners, consultants, subs, and suppliers to develop multi-dimensional solutions to everyday needs.

More Efficient Construction Projects

Design-Build services assign the sole responsibility of design and construction activities to one entity. Our clients can rest assured as we reduce the project-based risk and concentrate on the project criteria, while efficiently overseeing the delivery. During this stage, if the owner wishes, our team helps the owner to assess and create clear and concise project design criteria. Unlike traditional project delivery, which divides design and construction into two separate functions, the design/build delivery method places the design and building responsibilities under a single entity. This improved project delivery is achieved by re-organizing project phases and design decisions upstream in the project cycle for more effective results.

On-Time and On-Budget with our High-Tech Cost Modeling

“We create realistic, informed, and precise estimates from the start.” With access to years of construction data, our estimating department can develop conceptual estimates from very early in the process. The end result is that the best decisions can be made to benefit the project over its lifetime. DDD project teams have a unique ability to maximize the value and quality of your building to their highest values during the earliest stages of planning and design. With the use of Building Information Modeling, we are able to understand the cost implications of every design decision. Experience has taught us that being able to model in five dimensions (time and cost being the fourth and fifth), is crucial to adding value during the preconstruction process and to your building’s lifecycle.

Keys to Success in any Construction Project in Puerto Rico

With a higher-than-average standard of care, DDD can provide the success that clients look for. A project schedule with an improved delivery time and cost savings. This improved project delivery is achieved by re-organizing project phases and design decisions upstream in the project cycle, where they can produce more effective results. Differing from the traditional approach of design-bid-build, this shift results in upstreaming certain services that were typically carried out once construction drawings were completed, to when conceptualization and schematic drawings are occurring. By achieving this, certain early phases of design carry a heavier workload but minimize risk on later services of the project life cycle.
