The Design-Build Difference

The Design-Build Difference

Enlisting the services of a design-build contractor can be beneficial because the services are being done by a general contractor who will handle the entire project for you.

This won’t eliminate issues, but it will combine them under one roof for faster turnarounds and more focused services without incurring higher project costs.

Streamlined Communications

When the project is handled by a single company, communication takes place faster, and there is a lower chance of misunderstandings.

The property owner can express concerns or questions directly, without the delays associated with conversations being relayed along the chain of command.

You have more access to the decisions being made and reduces the time required to implement modifications of the original plan.

Concentrated Responsibility

Having a single point of contact, the contractor, means you will not be hindered by differences between the contractor and architect. This means faster permitting and dependable quality control.

The contractor can address your concerns directly, which speeds up production without causing budget overruns and work delays.

Cost Considerations

Keeping the project under one roof means that more attention is given to keeping all facets of the project costs under control. With the design and implementation focused under one company, budgeting becomes a higher priority.

Waste is kept to a minimum, materials are managed competently, and there are fewer milestones to be integrated into the project.

If additional charges are required, you are informed of the situation quickly.

Enhanced Efficiency

In a design-build environment, the contractor has more to gain from keeping the project as efficient as possible.

From the initial design to the final punch list, keeping expenses at a minimum is equivalent to turning a profit on the job. There is no room for delays or excuses when the company’s reputation is on the line.

You benefit with a satisfactory job completed in a shorter time frame, because the contractor is intimately aware of things such as:

  • Quality Control
  • Process Management
  • Adhering to Industry Standards
  • Minimizing Modifications

Continuity and Professionalism

Allowing even minor oversights can be expensive for a design-build company. And when mistakes do happen, there’s no one farther down the line to blame.

The result is that you can expect more professional behavior on the job site, including efficiency and fewer delays. After all, every client is a testimonial for future projects, and there is no wiggle room when it comes to the bottom line.
