As we know, the process of buying out doors/frames/hardware is more of a hassle than it should be.
Door distributors don’t follow the design intent, send too many RFl’s, and misinterpret specifications; fighting architect’s tooth and nail regarding what is and is not permitted per specs, all while costing ownership additional money, and costing architect’s time in reviewing incomplete submittals. Below you will see the difference between using the antiquated Traditional Way of bidding work compared to using...
The Traditional Way
When the Door Distributor is left out of the design phase/hardware consulting process, in the traditional way of bidding, the following issues occur:
Misinterpretation of Specifications
Shallow Discounts from Specified Manufacturers
Too Many RFIs Generated After Award
Creates success from concept to creation. Ensures delivery of submittals that follow specs.
Specifications are Clearly Defined and Approved
Deeper Discounts from Specified Manufacturers
Jump Start on Material Production
Costs are clearly defined and built into the awarded contract
All Design Flaws and Discrepencies are Flagged and Built into the Awarded Contract
THE DIRECT PATH’S SOLUTION TO SUCCESS
Director Door acts as the project’s door, frame, and hardware consultant/spec writer
We meet with the architect and create a spec for approval
Using Director Door as spec writer eliminates the misinterpretation of specs.
This process saves time, additional costs and stress
No need to expedite material because we work off your schedule
There’s no cost to Ownership or GC to use Direct Path
Architects will save time reviewing complete submittals
No need for scope reviews
Buyout is based off our approved submittals
This allows for cleaner buyout with fewer change orders
Naturally speeds up schedule of the job and results in less RFI’s
