Engineer-Led Design-Build

When designing and constructing a building, it helps to have expertise on both sides of the equation. We feature our engineer-led design-build (ELDB) expertise by bringing together experts from Henderson Engineers and Henderson Building Solutions, providing the owner a one-stop shop where our engineering and construction management expertise is implemented to assess, estimate, and offer a construction schedule that aligns with the owner’s objectives. We then provide an enhanced design that takes into account the means, methods and schedule of construction. The result is lower project risk and ultimately lower total construction cost.

We also provide commissioning on all of our ELDB projects, to demonstrate that the systems perform exactly as designed. This provides further opportunities for us to be a partner for the life of our clients’ buildings. With the engineer-led design-build delivery method, an owner knows exactly what they’re getting, and getting exactly what they want.
