Design build is quickly becoming the preferred method of construction for many developers. This approach is a highly efficient and cost effective approach to a project.

For a design build project, we first meet with our client to learn what the specific project requirements are and to develop a project budget. From that point we put together a design team, and coordinate the design process to develop the design for a project that fits our client’s budget while meeting their design needs.

The advantages for our clients who have chosen to proceed with a design build approach benefit from:

Single Responsibility – The contract covers both the design and construction, the owner’s control is strengthened and the financial risk is reduced

Value Engineering – Design and construction personnel working as a team are able to maximize on value engineering

Time Strategy-The overall project duration is reduced as the team can identify long lead time items, and design processes can be overlapped with bid processes

The key advantage to this approach is that the risk to the client is minimized and passed on to us as the design build contractor. The fixed design build cost stays constant, as long as the design parameters remain unchanged.
