What is Design-Build?
Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion.
One Contract, One Integrated Team. Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the design-build team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by transforming the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance which fosters collaboration and teamwork.
The Design-Build Advantage:
~ Faster Delivery — collaborative project management means work is completed faster with fewer problems.
~ Cost Savings — an integrated team is geared toward efficiency and innovation.
~ Better Quality — design-builders meet performance needs, not minimum design requirements, often developing innovations to deliver a better project than initially imagined.
~ Singular Responsibility — one entity is held accountable for cost, schedule and performance.
~ Decreased Administrative Burden — owners can focus on the project rather than managing disparate contracts.
~ Reduced Risk — the design-build team assumes additional risk.
~ Reduced Litigation Claims — by closing warranty gaps owners virtually eliminate litigation claims.
