When you picture your construction project, what do you imagine?
Do you picture yourself swamped by paperwork and overwhelmed by phone calls while trying to keep track of where things stand with your builder, designer, engineer, and architect?
It doesn’t have to be that way.
The construction method known as “design-build” streamlines the process by giving you a single point of contact with the necessary expertise throughout the design and construction phases of your project.
With design-build, owners have just one point of contact throughout all phases of the project. This contact has full responsibility for every feature of the build and manages contracts with architects, designers, specialty contractors, materials vendors, and equipment suppliers.
This type of project varies from the traditional approach to construction where an owner will hire a design/engineering team separately from the contractor. Design-build alters the conventional sequence of work and offers a host of benefits to the client.
Taking the design-build route has several benefits:
Because of its efficient, streamlined nature, design-build construction typically cuts costs for owners. Design-build projects are delivered much quicker, on or under-budget, and with fewer change orders that can often disrupt construction and add to the project cost.
