Rethinking the traditional approach
BETTER COMMUNICATION & ACCOUNTABILITY
FASTER COMPLETION & MORE COST EFFICIENT PROCES
ENHANCED OWNER VALUE & QUALITY CONTROL
INCREASED INVOLVEMENT & WIDER RANGE OF OPTIONS
SIGNIFICANCE OF EARLY INVOLVEMENT
By involving the Design-Builder early in the process, the client benefits from real time pricing information and build strategy. In a traditional method, the opinions and suggestions of a General Contractor may contrast the design decisions made by the Architect, all these changes create conflict and cause the owner unnecessary headache and time spent in fixes or delays. Since Design-Build is based on collaboration and teamwork, the General Contractor is a part of the project team and will be involved from the start alongside the Architect, making the suggestions and giving necessary input from the build side to achieve the Client’s desired results, while keeping true to the Architect’s design and vision. From start to finish, the Client will have better results.
ELIMINATION OF EXTRA COSTS
The Design-Build Approach reduces construction costs for owners because it is a more efficient and cost-effective process. The Client will benefit from the savings and convenience in faster project completion, while using the savings for better design or finish options in their project. Design-Build cuts out the middle man competition and overhead that occurs in bidding and using a seperate architect, project manager and general contractor, giving the Client an overall better value and a wider range of options – allowing them to put the cost savings towards the outcome of their project, instead of into someone else’s pockets.
