Balancing good design with construction value

Frischhertz is the region’s authority in design-build work, the most innovative construction project management and delivery method in the industry. Frischhertz frequently acts as design-builder in many of our electrical construction projects.



Design-Build is a project delivery method in which the designer and builder are one in the same. Our company utilizes the design-build process to draft our own contract documents while working closely with engineers and architects.

Design-Build is becoming a more popular delivery method, because it consolidates responsibility under a single entity. With Frischhertz as your project’s design-builder, you are assured of consistency from drawings through installation, accountability by Frischhertz for all performed work, and harmonious teamwork across the entire project.

Furthermore, design-build allows us to complete projects for clients at a lower cost and in a shorter time period than the traditional method of design-bid-build, thereby allowing tenants to move in sooner and businesses to open earlier.

The following graphic illustrates how the project’s cost is established early in the process, eliminating the bidding stage condensing the project timeline:

Design-Build advantages include:

  • Faster project delivery
  • Faster revenue earnings
  • Reduced transaction cost
  • Less hassle
  • Single point of contact
  • Shortened development time (i.e. lower interim financing for the client)


In design-assist projects, Frischhertz closely collaborates with owners, designers, and other contractors early in the planning phase to maintain the budget while still delivering a successful project. The primary engineering and design responsibilities are held by an outside engineering team. However, Frischhertz is actively involved, offering management, reviews, suggestions, and quality control advice.
