The design/build process originated many years ago, but recently has gained popularity. In this arrangement, one company provides the planning, design, and construction services under a single contract with the owner.

This approach provides information to owners when it is most critical—during the feasibility, budget, and design phases of the project. No owner wants to pay architectural fees to develop construction documents for soliciting bids by general contractors only to learn that the design exceeds the budget, which will now require redesigning plans and a substantial loss of time.

Benefits of the Design/Build Approach:

  

Most efficient and cost effective method of construction

 

Increased owner participation

 

Single-source responsibility

 

Better communication

 

Cost control during the entire process

The hallmark of a good design/build team is consistent communication. Good teamwork lessens the likelihood of mistakes and ensures a high-quality product.
