Design build is a process of building where both the design and constuction are contacted and controlled by one souce. This process allows for more organization because there is only one source of accountability. In this process, the client usually has more say in the project.
Other methods of construction work very well, but we are strong supporters of the design-build process because it is easier to manage the project and money because the whole project is more structured. This method os proving to be one of the most effective ways in the entire industry.
Design-build construction also saves time by putting the designers and builders under one roof, delays are now often avoided because problems can be solved much more quickly. Of course we cannot control all obstacles such as rain and snow but by eliminated other obstacles we can deliver the finished product in a much more timely manner.
This process also saves money. Many costs are avoided when the designers and builders are working under one roof because markup and external costs are completely avoided. Also because the timelines are more strictly followed, the final tab is lower and more fair.
In this process the owner has more say because since there are fewer voices in the process, the clients' pains are always heard. It is expected for the client to get exactly what they want and nothing less. This process also allows the client to slect systems to best suit their needs and budget.
