Horizon’s strength in a Design Assist role is to bring team knowledge to the project as early as possible.
Horizon believes that establishing a team (developer, architect, engineers, contractor, and property manager) during project concept allows for more design options, or value engineering, to be contemplated earlier in the project. This creates more long term value for the project, far exceeding the alternative where the team is formed during the bid process. By then the design has progressed too far to allow substantive cost saving changes, restricting owner options and allowing fewer value added options.
Working with Horizon in a Design Assist capacity will introduce all players to the project in early phases which maximizes the project value and reduces the overall project schedule
