DesignWorks exists to provide engineering services

Design Works exists to provide engineering services that are simultaneously:

  • Scalable. This means designing our firm for realistic pricing on small projects, and the expertise and manpower necessary for larger, complex jobs.
  • Integrated. Clients don’t need to hire separate firms for mechanical, structural, civil, and electrical engineering. We enable clients to invest in a relationship with our single firm for all projects.
  • Best in Class. Accomplishing all-in-one design without sacrificing expertise is what we do best. We have a proven dedication to applying innovation, in line with the highest standards of quality.
  • Affordable. Understanding the markets and giving value to our clients is critical. If our clients don’t have financial success, we don’t have success.

Why Design Works?

Balancing quality and cost is the oldest engineering problem in business.

Every new project represents a unique mix of smaller challenges. Each smaller challenge requires specific expertise which no single person is likely to have.

Keeping a variety of engineers, architects, and designers on staff ensures that the ideal solution is available in-house. However, that gets expensive quickly, which translates to increased fees for the customer.

We decided to take a different approach to solving that problem.

Instead of hiring internally to cover every combination of required expertise, we placed our focus on being a premier collaborative firm instead. We hire the best core engineers and pair them with specialist partners from our network. The result is optimal quality at a lower cost.

Our recipe is simple – it’s the execution that separates us.
