How Do You Win More Building Projects?
60%. That’s how much of a building’s cost typically falls under Structural and MEP systems.
If you want to win more building projects, consider how effective your design team is at delivering in these two areas. When more than half of the building costs are going to depend on getting these two things right, having consultants who can deliver a high quality, well integrated design in each area is critical.
Considering new pedestrian or light vehicle bridges? Knowing your options will give you the steps you need to make the project a success.
Building a stronger design team is the key to winning more sports and athletic facility projects. As an architect, how you build your design team often means having to choose a consultant based on either locality or experience. Going with a local consultant does offer the advantage of having someone knowledgeable of the project and its managers.
However, when upwards of 60% of a facility’s cost falls under structural and MEP systems, choosing a consultant for these disciplines based only on geography is not the most strategic choice for building a better design team.

Allegheny Design Services has recently begun work on two exciting new athletic facility projects at the Indianapolis 500 and First Tennessee Park (home of the AAA baseball team the Nashville Sounds). On both projects, ADS teamed up with TS Sports (recently joined with Panasonic, Inc.); one of the world leaders in cutting edge LED sign displays.
Recently, ADS also teamed up with TS Sports for the scoreboard assembly at the new Monongalia County Ballpark and Coliseum entrance sign projects in Morgantown, West Virginia.
The work on the new Monongalia County Ballpark, future home of WVU Baseball and the West Virginia Black Bears, has reached a signficant milestone – substantial completion of the major structural elements in the project. This is significant because it marks a distinct point in the construction sequence where the contractor can move toward other aspects, such as interior finishes, furniture and turf installation.
