In our search for ways to build smarter, we’ve turned the conventional ‘design-bid-build’ approach on end. Rather than compartmentalizing the designing, bidding and building functions, our resources allow us to bring them together as one integrated team of skilled professionals.
While many consider the “design-bid-build” delivery method to be the traditional approach to construction, this way of thinking has only really existed for about 150 years. The standard practice in construction for most of our history has employed the concept of the “master builder”, where the construction team was led by someone with the vision to design and the construction knowledge to make that vision a reality. The concept of the master builder more closely resembles the “design-build” delivery method, which is growing more prevalent with each passing year.
This approach is easier because you deal with one source instead of several. That means one point of contact to hold accountable for design, budget, schedule, construction, safety and quality. It also results in efficiencies of production and outstanding quality. With one team coordinating, mistake-proofing, following up and completing tasks at the same time, we can ensure that the methods and materials used will maximize the value of the finished product and your overall experience with us.
When you work with us on a design-build basis, you’ll enjoy:
- Our team is a single source for design and construction
- A team of experienced professionals whose expertise best corresponds with the specific requirements and scope of your project
- A check-and-balance system between design and construction that helps preserve the budget while maintaining a high level of quality
- A guaranteed maximum price far earlier than with the traditional design-bid-build approach
- Reduced project duration so high-interest construction loans can be converted into lower-rate permanent financing allowing a return on investment sooner
- Higher quality from ensuring performance and building life-cycle needs, not just minimum design requirements
