Design / Build Services
The design / build approach is a turnkey method in which you hire one contractor to lead the entire design and construction process. The builder hires the most appropriate architect for your project, then works hand-in-hand with you and the architect in order to ensure the project meets both the design and budgetary goals of the owner. There are many benefits associated with the use of the design / build approach to project delivery. Listed below are some significant reasons to choose the design / build approach.
The builder here assumes the role of lead consultant. The responsibility for both design and construction is carried solely by the designer / builder. The ability of the builder to establish and conform to defined budgets is highly preferred and benefits the owner of the project. The builder also has to maintain control to keep the project within the defined budget constraints.
Along with single-source responsibility comes the desire and motivation for quality and proper project performance. The owner has set a standard of expectations that the designer / builder is responsible for not only producing, but also documenting.
Value engineering and constructability are achieved more effectively and efficiently when the designers and contractors work as one team during the entire process.
Design / build is the perfect solution for the application of 'fast track' construction techniques. With design / build, materials and equipment preparation can begin before the construction documents are executable. And, because design and construction can be, and often are, overlapped, re-bidding and re-design is eliminated. Total design and construction time can be greatly reduced.
Reduction in Administrative Burdens
The owner is able to invest less time and money coordinating, arbitrating and conducting separate design and construction contracts, documents and meetings. Instead, the owner is able to invest time focusing on important decision-making items.
Early Knowledge of Project Costs
Costs can be estimated and maximum costs can be defined much earlier in the design / build process than in other construction options. The entity responsible for the design of the project is also simultaneously estimating construction costs, which helps the designer / builder acquire an accurate basis for the completed project.
Improved Risk Management
Aspects of costing, schedules, and quality are defined by and are the responsibility of the designer / builder. Change orders, which can result from architect and general contractor conflicts, are substantially reduced because the designer / builder has responsibility for developing drawings and specifications, and in the end, a fully functioning facility
