APX West will transition from design to engineering seamlessly. Having an engineer on our team to assist (from start to finish in each project) from planning through design and construction, means that technical aspects are never overlooked.
One of the key members of the APX West team is a civil engineer. We think this is an essential resource to have on any team who intends to advise on real estate development. The ability to process critical, technical details is what sets engineers apart.
The technical details are the most problematic to anticipate, most costly in terms of time and financial resources, and most difficult to find solutions for. Having an engineer on our team means that we can begin anticipating these issues from day one of any project, rather than waiting to get into the design process before these considerations begin.
Additionally, there is no need to wait for information to be returned from third party engineers, thereby saving significant time and mitigating financial risk. Whether investigating new projects to present to our investors or working on a project as consultants, having an engineer to consider the technical challenges a project may face helps our team make faster and more informed decisions with absolute confidence.
We seek out clients in all stages of the development process. For those seeking engineering design or just looking for input on the challenges their project may face, we can provide a valuable perspective. Because our engineer works side-by-side with our general contractor, they seamlessly communicate and balance both the perspective of what is needed technically and what is most cost effective.
By allowing these two perspectives to come from common ground, APX West can make the best value engineering decisions for any project.
Our engineer, and the engineering resources we engage, have long standing relationships with city and county personnel who have significant review and inspection involvement with all development projects. We know what their expectations are, how to make their jobs easy, and their inspections timely. An unhappy inspector can add significant time to a project and this is usually the result of poor communication or a lack of faith in the team. By building strong working relationships with the local engineering and building departments, we are able to save significant time and money lost as a result of poor planning and communication.
The reality of engineering is that it’s much more than making technical decisions, it’s also making sense of complicated issues. Our team has spent years cultivating relationships and creating a shared confidence between city planners, engineers, and inspectors that we apply to all development projects, allowing us to accelerate where others projects slow.
