Design Assist & Design Build


Our Design Build Approach:

A Seamless Transition from Preconstruction to Construction

Mid-City has extensive Design Build experience. With significant expertise in the design of modern electrical systems, including lighting, power, structured cabling, communications technology, and program distribution systems, we will offer valuable insights into how we can better achieve the Owner’s goals while maintaining budget, schedule, quality, and safety. Our process ensures that we involve all key stakeholders in planning so we maintain our target dates and achieve the project’s goals.

By utilizing Building Information Modeling, our team will consider your project location, purpose, appearance, and potential LEED compliance efforts when crafting the electrical designs. We will also consult our prefab shop foreman to define how prefab could offer value-added benefits to this project. As a member of the Electrical Design Build Team, we will be an active participant and contributor throughout the design process.

On past projects, the electrical design-build team has consisted of Mid-City’s Project Manager, and the professional design build engineer, who signs off on all of our electrical design drawings. Our team attends design review meetings and works side-by-side the Architect, General Contractor, and the Owner to find the best solutions.
