Commercial Design-Build Engineering

Southport Engineered Systems designs and installs mechanical systems to commercial and industrial facilities throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Our design capabilities are limitless and we’re capable of prefabricating ductwork and piping for affordable prices. 

A specific design capability service we offer is design-build. This method is a project delivery system used by many construction companies. The design and construction are contracted by Southport alone. It’s a method that will minimize risk and reduce the delivery schedule since the design phase and construction phase overlap. 


Industrial HVAC, Piping, & Fire System Design-Build Service

When using the design-build method, it’s important to focus on the core of the business. Southport offers HVAC, plumbing, and fire system services that can be compatible with a design-build method. We help clients who need:

  • Replacement of old equipment
  • Replacement of failed equipment
  • Additions to equipment 
  • Energy conservation utility rebates
  • Energy retrofits

We monitor, measure, and benchmark all aspects of the design-build process from proposal to client acceptance of the project. We interact directly with our clients so they know who to contact when something goes wrong. You don’t have to worry about anyone else working on your project because it all comes from our team.

  • Faster delivery - one team works faster with fewer problems
  • Save money - one team geared toward efficiency, which saves you money
