The Benefits of Choosing a Full-Service Design Build Firm
When considering your options, know that there are two basic methods for building construction. The first is the design-bid-build method which relies solely on an architect to design the remodel. After the architect’s designs are complete, the project goes out to contractors for competitive bidding. Under this high-risk method, designers and contractors are not contractually obligated to work together, leaving the burden of project delivery on homeowners.
The second, and more efficient process, is the design build method. The design build model consists of a single entity being hired to perform both design and construction under one contract. This budget-friendly method is characterized by connectivity with professionals from multiple trade backgrounds working together. According to the Construction Industry Institute, “an experienced design build team has the greatest opportunity of succeeding in achieving goals in schedule maintenance, construction speed, and intensity.”
