Design / Build

Design / Build

We provide preliminary design drawings geared to fit each type of client, construction documents utilized for landlord approval, building department approvals and bidding. Preliminary drawings are generated from our field survey, as-built and/or landlord drawings, and then submitted to the client for approval. Construction documents are then created based on the clients’ feedback. As a time saver, our Engineers are working on the MEP’s as we finalize the Architectural drawings.

Project Management

Project Management

Each project receives complete and prompt attention. We specialize in obtaining necessary approvals from landlords and building departments in order to turn over to the GC.We have a team of expeditors for those projects that require additional attention. RDS also has relationships with lighting vendors, sign manufacturers, fixture manufacturers, contractors, etc. to develop the complete turnkey service. Projects are monitored from start to finish ensuring change orders and delays are avoided. Once approvals are obtained, the bid documents are submitted to General Contractors to start the bidding process. After the bids are received, they are qualified and negotiated to ensure the best price. We will generate a punch list at the end of construction prior to the clients taking procession of the space for the Grand Opening.
