The Matchless Combination of Design Assist and the Zahner Method
Balancing creativity, costs, and quality is the ultimate challenge for any stakeholder in the design and construction process. Architects want to produce profound designs. Contractors want to build with economy and speed. Owners want to create memorable spaces and places.
But there are many unknowns that can drive unnecessary costs and confusion. There is often a knowledge gap between design and engineering, materials and applications, attachment points and installations.
At Zahner, we add a knowledge layer that fills these crucial gaps because we bring a one-of-a-kind blend of architecture, engineering, technology, metallurgy and fabrication to every design project. We deliver enhanced value to the Design Assist phase by making it easier for owners, contractors, architects, and fabricators to communicate and work together towards project success. This is Zahner Assist℠.
Zahner On Collaboration: Hear from our EVP, Robert Zahner, on how we collaborate with owners, architects and general contractors to create “something special.”
Zahner Assist makes any project possible. From design, prototyping and engineering, to fabrication and installation, we have the experience and engineering acumen under one roof to make projects feasible, achievable, and affordable.
We don’t just look at drawings and prepare bids as drawn. We expand thinking to solve design challenges with elegance and practicality. We strive to make thoughtful, well-informed recommendations that often save weeks in construction schedules and millions in construction costs.
The Design Assist team—your Zahner Assist team—develops system details, project budgets, and engineering specifications that create a general framework that the construction team can easily follow throughout the fabrication and installation phases.
Zahner Assist can even help take your vision further, while still delivering improved constructibility and reducing change orders and Requests for Information (RFIs) in the field.
When needed, we also provide long-term, on-site consultation. Depending upon the complexity of the project, our Zahner Assist consultants often work in teams to broaden the depth and breadth of experience on your project.
Zahner Assist is for architects, contractors, and owners who want to design and build in a smarter, more profitable way. To learn more, contact the Zahner sales team.
