What this means for you is that we understand how to successfully work with convergent or divergent user groups to reach a common goal; we understand what it takes to deliver a successful public design-bid-build as well design-build project.
SOLARC are experts in remodeling existing buildings that are continuously occupied by their owners, which require accurate and detailed logistics planning. We understand working in buildings that are occupied, partially occupied and how important logistical planning is to the project and owner operational success. Because project delivery is as important as the design itself, we have developed a process through detailing a MS Project schedule for logistics planning to assure projects are delivered in the best way possible for our clients that must maintain ongoing operations during construction.
