Who We Are

Company

Civil engineer - Architectural Engineer, with specialization in concrete and steel structures.

Our services are extremely diverse. We are one of the few structural engineers on the Island of Aruba, this combined with our general construction expertise gives us the edge. We can offer costs effective designs, reliable builds, construction saving designs and design build, something our competition can not offer.

Structural engineering involves designing things to be built, and then helping to build them: buildings, bridges, tunnels, towers, etc. We might also be involved in the demolition or dismantling of a structure, either permanently or in order to repair it. Structural engineers also inspect buildings, both during and after construction, and oversee the use of the concrete, steel and timber of which they are made. They must also be aware of both obvious and inobvious uses for the structures and how these uses affect its design.

One Contract, One Integrated Team, are benefits you the client has when choosing us.

Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.

SMALL BIOGRAPHY OF ING. FRANCISCO MEJIA

(Mr. Frank)

Francisco Mejia, is a multicultural Architect, Engineer and Builder. Born in 1967 in the Dominican Republic, lived in Aruba and studied in Holland. Being able to speak fluently Spanish, English, Dutch and Papiamento has made him work with local and International clientele. He started his first company ARCON in 1995 and has been in the construction since then. Having a structural engineering background he invented a way to repair cracks in masonry and concrete walls and became known as the crack repair specialist in Aruba. Many other contractors has copied his system since then.

In 2001 he started with MEJIA Engineering and has been more involved as an Architect and Structural Engineer in many mayor projects such as Tierra del Sol, OASIS Condominiums, OCEANIA, Gold Coast Villas and many other big projects. He has also worked with many local and International Architects from Curacao, Bonaire, The Netherlands and Venezuela. After more than 19 years experience he is now commited to deliver quality design consulting services wich he now calls DESIGNBUILD.

“Every mayor idea starts with a sketch on a piece of paper and changes into a building.”

Francisco Mejia is constantly on a learning process and is re-inventing himself in new ways of design and consulting his clients in this very competitive area of Architecture and Engineering in Aruba and the Caribbean.

Project management and Supervision

Inspection

A building inspection service is not only important but it is often required by law. If you do not get your building inspected you may find that you won’t be able to obtain the permit that you need to build on the land that you bought or to tear down the existing structure and rebuild. There are certain regulations and code that inspectors know about that is not common knowledge to the general public. There are guidelines when building structures, and the house you love might not be structurally sound. You would never know this without the help of a qualified and reputable inspector.

We inspect the structural quality and general safety of the building. We specialize in structural steel or reinforced-concrete structures. Before construction begins, plan examiners determine (calculate) whether the plans for the building or other structure comply with building codes and whether they are suited to the engineering and environmental demands of the building site. To inspect the condition of the soil and the positioning and depth of the footings, we visit the worksite before the foundation is poured. Later, we return to the site to inspect the foundation after it has been completed. The size and type of structure, as well as the rate at which it proceeds toward completion, determine the number of other site visits they must make. Upon completion of the project, we make a final, comprehensive inspection. In addition to structural characteristics, a primary concern is fire safety. We assess the type of construction, the building’s contents, adequacy of fire protection equipment, and any risks posed by adjoining buildings.

Design Build

What is Design-Build?

Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity - the design-build team - works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. Design-build is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility. Around the world, design-build successfully delivers office buildings, schools, stadiums, transportation and water infrastructure projects with superior results.

Design-build is an alternative to design-bid-build. Under the latter approach, design and construction are split - separate entities, separate contracts, separate work.

Design-build, design-bid-build and construction management are the three project delivery systems most commonly employed in North America and Aruba. Over the past 15 years, use of design-build has greatly accelerated in the United States, making this delivery method one of the most significant trends in design and construction today.
