Design Assistance

Through our proven Integrated Approach, we establish a foundation of team responsibilities, collaborative communication and trust. Early engagement with your construction team is key to the success of your project. Nor-Son’s project management, estimators, and design professionals are all available for design assistance. In addition to working with our own in-house design staff, we have extensive experience working and collaborating with outside architects, which has allowed us to continue to enhance our knowledge of best practices in healthcare design and construction.

Design/Build

Our architects and design staff work in concert with our construction personnel to ensure design creativity is firmly grounded with construction reality. We’ll work with you to deliver a construction package that best serves your needs. This long-term commitment retains the most value in your building project.

BIM (Building Information Modeling)

Our design and construction professionals utilize Building Information software to pre-construct a building to proactively visualize, identify, and coordinate building construction and constraints before breaking ground. Through this software, our technology professionals can prepare schedule and cost estimates to identify critical coordination areas and offer alternative solutions.
