Design / Build

With in-house engineering, project management and skilled labour all under one roof, Ainsworth is able to offer true turnkey design / build or EPC (Engineer, Procure, and Construct) services for clients.  The advantages of this approach when compared to traditional design, then construct services, include:

  • Single point of contact and accountability
  • Elimination of margins and markups on subcontractors (we mark-up the job as a whole and only, once saving the client money in the process – typically 15-25% savings)
  • Our engineering stems from practical applications and live construction and commissioning experience avoiding costly engineering omissions and construction change-orders as a result.  Our engineers confirm the constructability of their designs at every step of the process with our project managers and senior forepersons avoiding the “throw it over the fence” mentality of traditional approaches.  This means that when the trades have the job handed to them and the site mobilization occurs, surprises are all by eliminated and work starts and finished as anticipated.
