Design Assist

“Nearly 100% of NEC’s projects have a component of Design Assist” – Paul Becks, Executive Vice President


The DA process has been adopted by our industry as an effective method of project delivery. The sophistication and variability of todays facades can create an impediment to fast-track construction. NEC’s proven and collaborative approach to the process efficiently guides the effort to assure timely progress and ultimate success.


Out of our experience we have created a guide to delineate the process, describe the deliverables and offer insight into how this process is integrated into the commercial building delivery. This is a collaborative effort and requires all parties to contribute to and adopt this plan.


One key element of success in managing this process, is the role of the Technical Project Manager (TPM). This is our key process manager, whose job is to assure progress and success. The TPM works closely with the NEC design staff, outside consultants and the client to assure progress in accordance with the project schedule, achievement of design goals, compliance with technical guidelines and cost containment within the GMP Target.

NEC assures success in achieving a “Best Value Solution” by balancing Design, Commercial and Technical goals.
