Gunthorpe Plumbing is at the forefront of Target Value Design and has the tools and experienced personnel to work directly with designers, builders, suppliers, estimators and Owners to collaboratively produce a design that provides the best value for the Owner.
Budget (the target value) is a design criterion. The team designs to the budget instead of the conventional process of estimating the cost of the design, and then re-designing to eliminate overruns. The TVD process employs Responsibility-based Project Delivery planning and relies upon lean systems thinking among team members.
Design-Bid-Build is a traditional project delivery method in which the agency or owner contracts with separate entities for the design and construction of a project.
Our in-house design team is experienced in bringing a project from design to completion. We coordinate and draft project designs using a state-of-the-art CAD System and work diligently with construction managers and general contractors to use our tools as a competitive advantage.
Integrated Project Delivery creates a collaboration between Owner, Designer and Builder during the design process to provide the Owner with the best value and a greater potential for lower construction and operation costs.
Assembling the Construction Team early can provide tremendous benefits to a project. Our team uses IPD experience to increase value to the Owner through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.
We operate two Yellow Label fabrication facilities.
Our Virtual Design Group is successful at providing design assist and facilitating multi-trade coordination efforts with extensive training, communication skills, and abundant resources that match project specific needs.
Using Navisworks as a tool for collaboration and clash detection allows all parties involved to use software specific to their needs, not hinder any deliverables and provide the best value to the owner.
