Associated Builders' ability to control costs can be attributed to the expertise which exists within the firm. The engineering department consists of full-time employees, not part-time subcontractors. Each project is supervised by the engineering team from beginning to end, which includes design feasibility, final engineering plans, and construction supervision.
Kim Masiuk, P.E. is responsible for supervising the engineering department. She comments, "We are committed to excellence in designing facilities that will help our clients' companies continue to grow and prosper." State-of-the-art CAD workstations include computer connections to clients, manufacturers, and suppliers, allowing swift and thorough integration of all building components. Project feasibility is verified, and the needs of the client are addressed. The engineering department is instrumental in putting it all together. Designing a cost-effective, energy-efficient building that works for the client is a top priority at Associated Builders.
