Boise Design Build

Why use Design-Build instead of Design-Bid-Build?

  1. With design-build, you’ll have one point of contact to contact for status updates and accountability for the project. Since the entire project – including the architect(s) and engineer(s) needed - is coordinated by the design-builder, any typical denial of responsibility or blame disputes between the architect and builder are avoided.
  2. Seeing the entire project’s scope from the beginning allows the design-builder to provide a more accurate quote since they receive all sub-contracted bids up front. In design-bid-build, the architect has two disadvantages: the construction costs will not be known until the design is complete, and the architect is generally not as accurate on building costs as an actual builder.

Design/Build Provides an Alternative to Building Frustrations

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.
