While design-build is frequently used to expedite capital projects, Tesco Controls (TESCO) applies this approach to deliver feature-rich control systems. We have a track-record of successful partnering on projects, including both greenfield and legacy migration control system deployments.

Design-Build Philosophy

TESCO’s design-build philosophy is to work with our partners and clients to provide the best system for the client. This includes not only the initial capital cost, but the long-term cost of ownership, the solution’s reliability and effectiveness, as well as ensuring public health and safety. Our expertise and knowledge as a technology partner can minimize the risks of schedule delays, system failures, and cost overruns.

Water/Wastewater Focus

TESCO’s time tested, field-proven experience supports informed decisions and priorities for performance management, security, integration, business continuity and regulatory compliance. TESCO’s technical staff are experienced in designing systems that meet the challenges and complexities of water/wastewater projects. Unlike standard plant installations, water/wastewater design and deployment must take telemetry, advanced communications, regulatory compliance, and security into design considerations – as well as the vital role control systems play in ensuring public health and safety.

TESCO values its membership in the Water Collaborative Delivery Association. As collaborative delivery solutions grow in popularity and use, the need for industry standards, knowledge, and research on best practices has never been more important. WCDA’s work is not only elevating competency, skills, and ethical standards across the industry, it’s ensuring that practitioners and owners are equipped to deliver better projects together on the project site. TESCO has been an active participant in helping to advocate for collaborative delivery in governments across the U.S. and participating in the standards documents used by members and agencies.
