HVAC Design-Build

At Professional Heating & Cooling of Va, most of our mechanical construction projects are done on a design-build basis. We offer custom mechanical design-build services for your commercial HVAC, refrigeration, and direct digital control (DDC) projects. Design-build commercial HVAC construction projects use a single manager from PHCVA responsible for both the design and construction of the project. When you choose PHCVA as your mechanical contractor for your custom system, design-build is a guaranteed service in addition to value engineering and preventative maintenance.

The Design-Build Advantage

  • Single Source of Responsibility: One major advantage of design/build is the ability to provide an owner with a single source of responsibility for all aspects of a project. Clients have a single company they can hold accountable-no questions and no finger pointing. By building a collaborative team that includes the consultants, architects, builders, subcontractors, suppliers, as well as the owner, the design/builder can ensure the owner’s goals are met.
  • Saves Time: As a fully integrated team we can significantly reduce the amount of time from the inception of your project to its completion. Teamwork reduces rework and redesign. Fast-track allows us to overlap design and construction stages. Design/build delivery reduces pre-construction time by streamlining buy-out and bidding times.
  • Saves Money: Eighty percent of the cost of a project is driven by subcontractors and suppliers. In traditional project delivery, they do not get involved until plans are complete. By then it is too late, or very costly, to incorporate and cost savings ideas they could offer. As part of a design/build team, this input is provided at the start and can be incorporated into the design at no additional cost to the project.
