Capital Engineering Consultants, Inc. - CECI

project delivery

Capital's expertise lies in its staff but we also believe in providing the staff with the best tools and continually looking for ways to optimize while delivering superior service and better documents.

We have advanced the utilization of BIM to beyond the levels of our competitors by focusing on things like Rapid Energy Analysis using Revit models and we are one of the few companies that have completed a plumbing project in Revit. Capital holds bimonthly meetings with all Revit users, training them on the latest changes and developed BIM processes. We have developed custom workflows that improve the entire team performance such as ceiling coordination workflow, background display workflow that ensures consistent display of the architectural background across all consultants, and a Revit model quality assurance process that verifies the integrity and processes in the model, assuring that our clients are getting the highest possible BIM model.

We also utilize Newforma® project information management software to enable closer collaboration of our teams on projects and Deltek Vision for the business and metrics management for our teams within Capital.

Alternative project delivery is embraced by Capital as one of the necessary "tools" in today's varied marketplace. One style of delivery may work well for one client but not for all. The traditional design/bid/build is being used on fewer projects, but is still an important and viable strategy we are very skilled in. Additionally, we have a significant portfolio in other methods including:

  • Design-Build, owner’s side and contractor's side
  • Design-Assist
  • Lease-Leaseback
  • CM at Risk
  • Public Private Partnerships
  • Performance Contracting
  • LEAN/IPD
