Solutions for Government Personnel
Service excellence to local, state and federal agencies has been critical to Advance Design Consultant’s long-standing business success. Advance Design Consultant’s diverse team of multi-disciplined architects, engineers, designers, planners, consultants and technical specialists create a unique mix of skill sets and methodologies to help government institutions of any scale optimize budgets, minimize pain points, and create long-lasting and functional facilities.
Government and municipal facilities are of critical need to the local communities they support and require strict compliance with internal standards and restrictions while balancing schedule, budget, efficiency and minimal operational downtime. And, with multiple projects happening simultaneously with varied scopes and scales and more than one point of contact, it is necessary for government employees to find a trusted design and engineering team that have the skills and experience to handle intense complexity and provide flexible leadership, support, coordination and quality to each project.
Government institutions at federal, state and local levels face dwindling resources and aging facilities as well as growing energy reduction mandates, system and facility renovations, and increased need for multi-functional, sustainable spaces. Advance Design Consultant’s energy and sustainability experts help you maximize government stimulus (including LEED initiatives), so you get the most out of your steadily shrinking budget. They can help you find innovative solutions to handle the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing needs and/or convert your buildings to meet the lasting needs of your communities in a safe, accurate and economical manner.
From award of contract, our team begins the quality assurance and documentation process, opening communication channels, identifying challenges, critical milestones and project goals in a collaborative but structured environment that allows for maximum input, insight, productivity and benefit to the project. Our Project Managers work alongside our multi-disciplined architects, engineers, designers, planners, consultants and technical specialists, coordinating and integrating all disciplines into one detailed and comprehensive project approach that can be trusted to be of the highest quality and compliance.
