Pre-Construction

Engineering and BIM

Owners and general contractors need to know their design goals are never compromised by cost considerations. That’s why we outsource both our engineering and Bim design. This separation of disciplines offers a reliable system of checks and balances so Decker can identify the best engineer for each project, based on workload and areas of expertise.
