Informed decisions for

greater certainty of outcomes

Manage Assets

Design Atlantic helps clients to achieve the best possible results; dependably and economically. We stress project controls designed to make decisions with better information, early in the process.We use today’s latest technology as an integral part of the overall strategic planning process. This enables you to create and use systems that maintain live, near real-time information about your assets. This ability to create systems which inform day-to-day decision making is rapidly becoming the standard for resilient and sustainable facilities.

Manage Time and Costs

Design Atlantic steers complex capital asset programs through scope and program changes and approvals from multiple funding sources, translating client needs into buildable solutions. The typical project is complex, has critical time, cost and functional imperatives. Many Design Atlantic projects involve facilities that must remain operational throughout comprehensive renovations. We bring client teams to actionable decisions in record time, without compromising the quality of personal relationships or the intricacy of subtle design details.

Certainty of Outcomes

It is critical that your project be envisioned properly. With the correct strategy and vision for the project, the phases that follow become easier to manage and more successful. Design Atlantic’s process is designed to focus on the best possible solution to respond to your individual project’s needs.

The process identifies the strategies for successfully designing, constructing and managing your facility, project or process. You get detailed information to support the decisions that must be made to move ahead. You benefit from: an objective definition of quality; a clear definition of success at the beginning; appropriate expectations; and solid project controls. Design Atlantic gives you the data to be sure that you are moving in the right direction and lets you prove it to others.

“Finith’s writing and speaking have positively influenced the entire construction industry. His first book hit a home run for all practitioners of BIM. It is relevant to both the neophyte just making the BIM decision as well as the mature BIM organization looking for what is next.”

Dana K. (Deke) Smith, FAIA

“Design Atlantic’s work is truly amazing. With the need to conduct business in a quick and efficient manner, their system provides the opportunity to comprehensively view and update data that would typically have been stored in numerous locations and media formats, an effort that consumes far to many man-hours.”

Hal Adkins, Public Works Director

“Design Atlantic’s process allowed us to control critical components yet retained the flexibility of design/build. The details provided by the building model gave us the resources to manage a complex financing package and to convince the city council to proceed with securing additional funding to meet the project’s requirements. Being able to look at detailed information very quickly, early in the process has allowed us to manage our costs. Everyone clearly understood the project. In addition, we managed roadblocks so early that they never seemed to become a problem.”

William E. Gordy, Deputy Fire Chief

BIG BIM little bim

BIM is building information modeling—the design and construction equivalent of the way that manufacturers build digitally before building for real in the factory, and much more. It’s about visualizing the environment like in a Steven Spielberg movie; using data like a multinational bank, and; connecting information in a collaborative environment like Google. BIG-BIM is a force multiplier across the life cycle of everything that touches the built environment.
