Design/Build is an alternative approach that streamlines the process of tenant improvement or building and enables budget discipline from beginning to end. The design/build firm will take full responsibility for design, construction, and satisfactory completion by delivering the project on time and on budget.
In this method, all team members make decisions in a collaborative approach providing greater efficiency and a more satisfying result for the time and money invested. By working with a company with both design and construction experience, you will have simplified lines of communication that reduce the chances of miscommunication.
How Does it Work?
The process begins with a meeting between the design/build contractor and the business owner to discuss what is to be accomplished with a project and set a budget. Conceptual drawings will be shared between the architect, builder and business owner to set the design of the project. The design/build firm then takes the lead and will handle the project from an administrative perspective throughout the whole process.
A detailed timeline will outline all the various steps of the project and the business owner will actually save time and money as various tasks can be completed simultaneously. Plus, with a single source of communication, all those involved in the project will be held accountable for finishing on time and within budget.
