Design-Build projects encourage collaboration and efficiency, as the design doesn’t have to be finished before beginning the work. It requires a high level of responsive communication among all parties involved.

HVJ recently completed a design-build project on a heavily traveled, arterial street in a historical area of San Antonio with flooding and pedestrian challenges.  HVJ’s objective was to provide a reliable geotechnical assessment of subsurface conditions for utility installation, foundation construction, and to give recommendations for pavement restoration.

The outcome was a successfully completed project with a design that allowed quick completion with limited traffic impact and long-term sustainability that employed innovation. The design enabled utility relocation, provided bicycle access, improved landscaping, new signal light structures and pavement restoration in a manner that would withstand the heavy traffic of an arterial road.
