Facility design build services with a multi-faceted approach.

enVista’s engineers have developed comprehensive tools for developing efficient, state-of-the-art distribution centers. We have a deep understanding of the construction industry, and we manage your project from start-to-finish, freeing you of administrative burden and responsibilities for design. Why hire designers, engineers, and construction managers when you can manage your entire project through one entity. Industrial construction projects can be time-consuming, but our proprietary methods streamline the process, saving your organization time and money. Our flexible, proprietary facility modeling solution in combination with the use of simulation is used in multiple verticals including: business-to-business (B2B), direct-to-consumer (D2C) and retail.

enVista is not a material handling equipment (MHE) vendor providing equipment recommendations alone. Rather, our mechanical, systems and industrial engineering teams analyze your distribution center operations and develop process improvements to support your long-term business goals and ensure project success.

MHE recommendations serve as just one design component supporting a broader supply chain strategy. Our design/build team ensures the synchronization between the physical flow of inventory through your distribution center combined with the right balance of technology (WMS and WCS).

Our design build project team selects the most qualified and cost-effective equipment providers and design build contractors, based on your specifications, to ensure long-term savings benefits. enVista is your single point of contact, from design to build. We use powerful KPI and labor productivity dashboards which provide real-time business intelligence into your operation. Our team will take ownership of the design build contract from design into selection and through building construction and implementation. enVista is a partner that will be a single point of responsibility throughout the designbuild project cycle, managing both design and construction. Our integrated project delivery method manages everything you need for project success, so you have more time to focus on your organization.

The end result of our design and general contractor & construction management services is a balanced, efficient distribution center design that meets your company’s individual requirements, all from a single contract.

Design Build Services FAQs

Design-build services refer to a project delivery system in which a single entity or a team provides both design and construction services for a construction project. Instead of having separate contracts and relationships with an architect or engineer and a contractor, the owner hires a design-build firm to handle both aspects of the project.

In this approach, the design-build team works together from the beginning of the project, with the goal of delivering a finished product that meets the client’s needs, budget, and timeline. This integrated approach can result in more efficient and effective project delivery, as the design-build team is able to collaborate closely and make real-time adjustments to the design and construction plans as needed.

here are several benefits of using design-build services for a construction project:

  1. Single point of accountability: Design-build services provide a single point of accountability for the entire project. This means that the owner deals with a single entity for the entire project, which can simplify communication and reduce the risk of misunderstandings or conflicts between different parties.
  2. Cost savings: The design-build approach can result in cost savings due to more efficient collaboration between the design and construction teams. This can lead to fewer change orders and reduced project delays, which can ultimately save the owner money.
  3. Faster project delivery: With design-build services, the design and construction teams work together from the beginning of the project, which can streamline the process and result in faster project delivery. This can be particularly beneficial for projects with tight timelines.
  4. Improved quality: The design-build approach encourages collaboration between the design and construction teams, which can result in better quality construction. By working together to identify potential issues early in the process, the team can make adjustments to ensure that the final product meets the owner’s expectations.
  5. Greater flexibility: Design-build services can offer greater flexibility in terms of project scope and design. By having the design and construction teams working together, the owner can make changes to the project design during the construction phase without significant delays or cost overruns.

Overall, design-build services can offer a streamlined, efficient approach to construction project delivery that can result in cost savings, faster project delivery, and improved quality.
