Design for Manufacturing & Installation

The future of construction will demand more integration between design professionals and contractors. As a leader in this space, KLH has created strategic alliances with contractor partners across the country to collaborate on how consulting engineers can serve the point of install. With the support of our software development team, these partnerships have enhanced our ability to provide unique services and deliverables that provide value beyond permit submission. Examples are wide-ranging as these are custom to the specific needs of each contractor, but can include:

  • BIM-driven quantity take-offs for contractor pricing. 
  • Custom design models that can support pre-fabrication workflows such as modular and kitting.
  • Custom design models specifically created for efficient conversion to fabrication software.
  • Bill of materials to support design-build contractors at time of bid.
