Design-Build offers a better way to create your home with one team handling all aspects from concept, to design, building, selections, and after move in.
Single Source Responsibility:
With both design, construction, and interior design in the hands of a single team; the design-builder is responsible for the total outcome of your home. With design-build, the owner is able to focus on their needs rather than coordination between designer, builder, and interior designers.
The singularized responsibility inherent in design-build serves as a motivation for the team to deliver quality in a timely manner and implement with efficient performance.
Cost and Time Savings:
Design and construction personnel, working and communicating as a team, evaluate alternative materials and methods effectively and accurately. Value engineering and construct-ability are utilized continuously and more effectively when the designers, interior designers, and builders work as a team during the entire design process.
Reduced Administrative Burden:
During design and construction, the owner is not required to invest time and money in coordinating or arbitrating between separate professional firms, but rather is able to focus on timely decision making.
Early Knowledge of Construction Costs:
Construction costs are known far earlier than in other delivery systems. The entity responsible for design is simultaneously estimating construction costs and can accurately conceptualize the completed project.
Improved Risk Management:
Performance aspects of cost, schedule and quality are clearly defined and responsibilities/risks are appropriately balanced (individual risks are managed by the party best positioned to manage that risk). Change orders due to “errors and omissions” are virtually eliminated, because the design-builder had responsibility for developing drawings and specifications as well as constructing a fully-functioning facility.
