Design-Build Contracting offers distinct advantages over traditional design-bid-build contracting methods. This method reduces the time and costs associated with multiple-phase contract solicitation. By combining the Owner, Designer and Contractor into a single team, all parties are involved with the project from conception to completion. This level of involvement provides continuity, eliminates the learning curve and provides accelerated project schedules. Because it provides single-source responsibility for all aspects of the project, this approach reduces or eliminates costly change orders, providing better control over total project budgets.
Repair services are an important part of the Leak & Associates package of services. Facility damage generally involves loss of use of a vital facility for what can be extended periods of time. This loss of use results in loss of revenue, higher operating costs and general nuisances for everyone involved. Facility damage can also lead to Notices of Violation from the permitting authority which can be expensive and jeopardize your ability to continue to operate. The main repair issue facing the solid waste industry is floor wear in transfer stations and recycleries. Leak & Associates, Inc., has developed a method of repairing floors and walls which results in lower cost repairs with significantly less down-time and excellent long-term service life. This method has been used for several years in multiple facilities across the Southeast with tremendous success.
Leak & Associates, Inc., also successfully participates in public and private bid processes, and has brought their experience to the table to complete projects on time and on budget. Few general contractors can match Leak & Associates’ level of expertise in the solid waste field.
