The Design-Build Difference
Design-build is an integrated delivery process whereby project accountability is placed upon master builders for both design and construction. This single-source method for project delivery is an alternative to the traditional design-bid-build project delivery method. Under the latter approach, design and construction services are split into separate entities, separate contracts, and separate work. Design-build molds the chief architect, engineer, and builder into one entity that accepts full responsibility for integrating conceptional design with functional performance to successfully deliver construction projects with superior results.
Streamlining project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team transforms the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance, fostering collaboration and teamwork. Consistently delivering design quality, cost control, and delivery schedule, a design-builder is a highly valued professional in the construction industry.
