The Design+Build Process:
Design-Build is a full-service construction method where a design-build firm provides both design and construction services. Unlike with the traditional construction method, the designer and contractor are working on the same team, allowing for high levels of collaboration and unified recommendations.
With the traditional method, the client has to manage two separate firms, one for design and one for construction. This can cause several issues throughout the process since the designer and contractor are not working on the same team. If there is a disagreement or lack of communication between the two teams, your project could end up being delayed or going over budget.
With the design-build method, you will have a dedicated team that will brainstorm and collaborate together to create a beautiful home that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
The design-build method offers many benefits including:
Faster Project Delivery:
With the design-build construction method, projects are typically able to be delivered faster because collaboration from the outset usually results in fewer change orders, thus fewer project delays. Together, the designer and contractor can ensure that your home is completed on-time and on-budget no matter what issues may arise.
The design-build method is a fairly smooth process thanks to the open collaboration between the designer and contractor. Because everyone is working under one contract, there won’t be any conflicting recommendations or scheduling issues.
Reduced Construction Costs:
You can actually end up saving money by choosing a design-builder because of their efficiency. With your designer and contractor working side-by-side, you’ll be able to reduce the amount of time it will take to complete construction which will lower your construction costs.
Higher Quality Results:
The design-build method provides higher quality results because of the team-oriented approach. With your designer and contractor working together from start to finish, they are able to better align your vision with your project’s goals.
