What is Design Build?

Design Build is a construction project delivery system where the design, cost engineering and construction management are all managed through one single company. Design-build firms become the hub of the project by taking the responsibilities of both internal and external resources – architects, designers, contractors and construction companies – and streamlining them for a more efficient experience. This system improves value, reduces cost and risk for the homeowner and improves delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.

Why it Works

A coordinated team approach: Our design-build team, with over two billion dollars in successful development experience, is at your side throughout the selection of your architecture, design, engineering and construction personnel. We identify your needs and manage the critical path decisions that impact final design, duration and cost.
Design, construction and cost management: Our extensive knowledge and integrated approach limits the risks of communication breakdown and conflicts of interests between the architect, designer, contractor, owner and construction teams, which in turn mitigates the risk of costly mistakes, and delays.
Accurate budgets & faster timelines: We manage and build your project as if you were a professional developer, providing detailed cost analysis, project tracking and industry leading reporting. Through a coordinated team effort, proactive planning and design reviews we are able to parallel track many construction activities. Time is money – our project management process cuts substantial time and waste out of each project.
