IT ALL BEGINS
WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON MAKING
EACH PROJECT DISTINCTIVELY YOURS.
Beginning a project can be stressful and bewildering, so we wanted to share an overview of how our process works and the phases of your project journey, big or small.
WHAT IS DESIGN/
A CULTURE OF COLLABORATION WITH A PARTNER FROM START
Design-build is where one entity, the design-builder, enters into a single contract with the owner to provide both design and construction services. The designer and contractor work together from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the Owner's schedule and budget. Any changes are addressed by the entire team, leading to collaborative problem-solving and innovation, not excuses or blame-shifting. While single-source contracting is the fundamental difference between design-build and the old ways, equally important is the culture of collaboration inherent in design-build.
TIME & COST SAVINGS
Inherent to the design-build model is a savings of approximately 6% of the project costs.
The design-build team and the owner are in this together, and they have the same goal
When the same group designs & builds, much more attention is given to pricing and scheduling in the design phase.
A design-build firm is involved in the project from start to finish, which adds an inherent efficiency and effectiveness to the process.
In design-build, the owner retains total control over the project, and the team is there to empower and collaborate with them.
Design-build firms are experts in both fields: design and construction.
Design-build refines a process from beginning to end and manages the chaos into orderly steps.
By being involved in the process, owners can guarantee that their goals will be accomplished and that their wishes will be achieved.
HONEST & FREQUENT
Design-build is transparent because owners understand the process and know what is going on at all times.
