Build Smarter

Design Build 

           Design Build is a project delivery system that is one of the most significant trends in the industry today. The method delivers a single contract between the builder and the owner of the project. In Design Build all contractual responsibility falls under one entity: The Design Build Contractor

           As the design progresses, the Design Builder will need to keep an eye on the budget and make value engineering decisions along the way to ensure that the project budget does not get off-track. For this reason, the design builder must be versed in understanding both what the design team shows on the plans and what is required to complete the project. 

            Our customers most complex projects involve unforeseeable shifts in system requirements- sometimes in the middle of a project. By starting each project with engineering, we can alter our plans quickly if and when those shifts arise. The ability to pivot mid-project enables us to solve systems-level challenges before customers are constrained by a finished design. The results: Greater creativity, higher efficiency, and the ability to deliver truly customized solutions. 

          Now used widely throughout the industry, design-build helps save customers time and money, but the problems inherent in this approach relate to the design/build contractors natural skill set. They're either primarily a design firm or they're a builder- but they are not strong in both areas.
