Design Build


The number of design-build projects we are performing is rapidly growing and ASI is openly embracing this project delivery method. Our expertise in water projects allows us to work extremely well with owners, engineers, and regulators to influence design elements early in the process. This early involvement almost always reduces the overall cost of our projects because we can provide advice on streamlining the construction phase of projects, where 90% of all costs are found.

ASI is a pioneer in the design/build and early contractor involvement approach to new dam construction and dam modifications and we are recognized leaders this emerging area of dam work. ASI personnel completed the first true dam design/build dam project at the Pine Brook Dam in Boulder, Colorado and have continued this with numerous other design/build projects throughout the US and overseas. Further, we have design engineers on staff who regularly work directly with our engineering team members to provide the best overall and cost effective design.
