Design-Build Construction has revolutionized the way that consumers, architects, designers and contractors work together to accomplish a common goal. Design-Build has become a popular construction strategy as it eliminates many of the common problems and set-backs associated with the traditional building process. This is a “one-stop-shop” approach to commercial building where the contractor, architect and design services are all offered by one unified source – the Design-Build Contractor.
- Total contractor and design accountability
- One point of contact from project conception to completion
- Ensures client building plans are executed with maximum precision
- Accounts for design changes throughout the entire process
- Minimizes cost over runs
- Avoids costly errors
- Saves time
- Maximizes client creative input
The Design-Build process usually begins with a commercial concept or an idea. An initial meeting is set to determine the scope and a feasibility study is prepared. From this, the Design/Build contract is drafted and the design phase begins.
Design solutions are presented to the client, and from approved schemes, cost options and project specifications are developed and solidified. Final documents are prepared along with the contract for construction.
