Partnering with Feyen Zylstra’s Design Build/Design Assist services will save your company time and money through more efficient, feasible, and tested designs.Our team of engineers are professionally licensed in fourteen states and our staff includes LEED certified engineers, providing you with well-rounded, informed solutions. By incorporating industry best practices, safety, cost estimating, equipment integration, schedule impacts, and market knowledge all under one roof, we maximize the value that is delivered to you.

As a Design Build or Design Assist partner, we are actively involved throughout the entire project lifecycle including: the design evaluation, cost analysis, BIM coordination/clash detection, constructability, team building, schedule evaluation, final design, and value engineering processes. Starting in the preconstruction phase, our project manager and design team will work with you to gain a clear understanding of your project and then design the best electrical layout to fit your needs. From there, our Virtual Design and Construction team provides Revit drawings and layout designs before work begins. Our in-house fabrication team prepares materials before they are sent to the site, shortening your schedule and increasing safety.  Finally, with a robust and integrated understanding of the project, our construction team puts the plans into action. From start to finish, you can count on Feyen Zylstra to be your trusted partner, providing the answers, solutions, and innovative ideas needed to make your project a success.

Examples of Value that the Design Build Process Provides


With our vast experience and familiarity of specific material, labor costs, techniques, and code issues, we add tremendous value while providing accurate and early pricing information to your project. The Design Build process also allows less change orders to take place as a guaranteed maximum price can be easily determined.


With design and construction overlapping, total project time is significantly reduced. Ideal for fast track projects, Design Build’s time savings translates over into lower costs and earlier utilization of the completed facility. With the Design Build/Design Assist approach, costs are also calculated upfront, allowing the customer’s wishlist of facility features to be added into initial building plans without any expensive or timely change orders causing construction delays.


With FZ overseeing design and construction, there is a single point of responsibility for cost, schedule adherence, and quality which improve risk management for the project.  You can expect that we will produce an end product that fulfills aesthetic and functional objectives, while also meeting budget and schedule constraints. With one point of contact, you’ll spend less time and money coordinating and arbitrating between the designer and builder.


With the traditional competitive bid process, there is pressure to be the lowest bidder to secure the contract. With Design Build, the contractor guarantees that the design documents are complete and virtually free from mistakes, thus keeping quality high and error low.
