Design Build / Design Assist

Design Build

Design Build is proven to be a quicker start and a quicker finish, save money, and reduce risk to the owner compared to other traditional project delivery methods for most projects. It provides the owner a single point of contact and responsibility for the entire project from design through construction. This method is an expansion of the single contract system to include design as well as construction. A key aspect of the Design Build method is phased construction which can provide the owner beneficial use of the structure well before it would under the more traditional linear construction arrangement. Another key aspect of the Design Build method is the team concept which is inherent through a contractual relationship between the builder and designer. This collaborative relationship has proven to increase creativity between the designer and builder for the benefit of the owner. Design Build is in contrast to the traditional contracting method where the owner contracts the builder and designer separately yet hoping they will work together. The traditional method often ends up requiring more overall time, money, management and liability for the owner.
