Commercial Design Build Advantages

One Contract

One Contract

Contracts can often be the reasons for project delays or miscommunication due to the fact that there is more than one company intertwined in the project. Taking advantage of keeping design and build under one contract eliminates the amount of communication that’s needed and keeps all parties tied together to help strive toward project success and completion.

Single Source Responsibility

Single Source Responsibility

With design-build, the client has a single point of contact and responsibility. Similar to having only one contract, this helps communication and reduces the potential for disputes between the design and construction teams. It also fosters more accountability on the sole company which can lead to a stronger commitment to project success and quality.

Construction Review During Design

Construction Review During Design

By conducting construction reviews in the design phase, we can proactively identify potential constructability issues before they escalate into costly problems during construction. This strategic approach ensures that the design is not only aesthetically sound but also optimized for the construction process. In essence, this integrated process aligns design considerations with practical construction needs, fostering a seamless transition from concept to construction and ultimately enhancing project success.

Cost & Time Savings

Cost & Time Savings

Design-build projects may benefit from cost savings due to improved collaboration by keeping the design and construction teams under one “roof”. This collaboration can lead to more accurate cost estimates, value engineering opportunities, and a better understanding of constructability issues. It can also help streamline the construction process, as design and construction activities can overlap. This normally leads to faster project delivery compared to the sequential phases in the traditional design-bid-build model.
