    Who we Are

DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACTOR

As an experienced design-build firm, we work with our clients from initial planning and design to completion taking ownership of every step of the construction process. Our fully integrated design and construction services combined with our construction management expertise ensures creative solutions that are delivered smoothly and efficiently.

WHAT IS DESIGN-BUILD?

Design-Build is a system of project delivery or a comprehensive process which includes planning, design, and construction required to execute and complete a project. It is a unique method with one entity (a design-builder) and a single contract to provide both architectural/engineering design services as well as construction of the project. TheĀ  design-build process delivers a project more quickly than conventional Design Bid Build (DBB) and Construction Management at Risk (CMR) methods.

Additional Benefits Include:

  • One contract and two prime players (project owner and design-build firm)
  • Ability to enhance project coordination
  • Ability to reduce project claims
  • Achievement of cost efficiencies since the contractor and the designer are working together throughout the entire process.
  • Fewer changes
  • Earlier knowledge of firm costs

 

In short, the design-build process places the client front and center of the entire process creating a unique construction experience on their terms. Remember, a single contract changes everything.
