—MIKE CAMPBELL, DESIGN DIRECTOR / DBS GROUP

The steel supplier and erector feel that this project was the best project they have ever done in terms of coordination, speed, and accuracy of the steel detailing and fit-up. They attributed this to AST’s BIM process, virtual review, and modeling things accurately from the beginning of the process.

—JOE HARRIS, SUPERINTENDENT / WEITZ COMPANY

AST truly understands the design-build process...working with the contractor and finding efficient and creative solutions. They do a great job managing the design schedule, team interaction, and attention to detail.
