CONTRACTING METHOD

This project was a design-bid-build delivery so Symmetry Builders, Inc.’s involvement was not until late in the design process. Regardless, Symmetry was able to engage with ALLRED and provide nearly $500,000 in value engineering to bring the project to the owner’s budget. Although there were some value-added changes during the construction process, these changes were minimized through providing minimal cost solutions as well as offsetting cost through other scopes to maintain the project budget.
