What Is Design & Build?
Design Build Construction has revolutionised the way that consumers, architects, Engineers and contractors work together to accomplish a common goal. Design Build has become a popular construction strategy as it eliminates many of the common problems and setbacks associated with the traditional building process. At NMC we have access to several Architects who all have their own speciality in design and build, therefore we are confident in getting the job done exactly to the plan.
Advantages of Design & Build Construction
Here some key advantages to using the design-build method of construction over the classic design-bid-build method.
Single Source of Accountability
The design build approach provides a single source for your entire project. In the classic design-bid-build method the owner must; select an architect / designer, finalize the design, bid the project, select a contractor, and then act as an intermediary.
The design-build method fosters teamwork and lends itself to cooperation. The relationship built during the design phase helps to ensure that the stage is set for a successful construction project.
Discussing budget during the design phase (not waiting until the bids come in) helps to keep the projects within a realistic budget. Communicating the cost implications of design decisions ensures that the owner plays a key role in arriving at the final project price. Once the scope of work has been finalized, the project costs are clearly defined and controlled by the design-build firm.
Specific design and construction details are being developed throughout the entire process and the focus stays on owner “value”. The communication benefits of working with a construction expert and design professional at the same time ensures that potential problems are discovered before the project starts.
Faster Project Completion
Design build projects can be completed in a shorter amount of time because: bid time is reduced, scheduling for the project can begin before design is finalized, potential construction problems are uncovered early and enhanced communication keeps everything moving.
The design build method helps to remove ambiguity that may arise in material and construction specifications. Since the designer, engineer and builder are all used to working with each other, the focus remains on protecting the client’s interest.
Because of its inherent flexibility, design-build lends itself well to a variety of project types. By combining design and construction experience onto one team, the home owner realizes the benefits of “one stop shopping” at its best.
